Show your colours and join the ‘Apatchy Warriors’ for the Brighton Color Obstacle Rush 2020!

For the first time in Brighton, we will be facilitating a team of ‘Apatchy Warriors’ to take on the exciting Brighton Color Rush 5k obstacle course. With 20 obstacles, 8 colour stations and 20 music zones we know we are going to have a lot of fun! 

If you fancy challenging yourself and taking on the obstacle course, then why not join us?! You can even do it pretty much for free if you do a bit of fundraising for Alopecia UK (please see below).

All are welcome to be a part of the team.  We encourage as many people with alopecia as possible to be a part of the team but also welcome friends, family, partners, and wider Alopecia UK supporters too.  Please note that the Color Rush entry price increases incrementally throughout the year so if you are going to take part you are best signing up as soon as possible!  (And then you can get training as soon as possible too!).

Our aim of this event is to raise awareness and just have a bit of fun, but we also encourage fundraising too. Fundraising is optional but we do give an incentive.  Anyone who individually raises £150 for Alopecia UK through sponsorship for this particular event are eligible to claim the cost of their Color Rush entry fee back from Alopecia UK (up to £34.50).  Notes:

  • This can only be claimed back after you have completed the event and once your sponsor money is into Alopecia UK. 
  • This is a reimbursement from Alopecia UK and entirely separate from the Color Obstacle Rush, i.e. it is not a refund from the Color Obstacle Rush. 

If you would like to fundraise it couldn’t be easier- it’s all done through the Alopecia UK website! Simply go to our fundraising webpage here, select Brighton Color Obstacle Rush 2020 from the dropdown appeals menu towards the bottom of the page and complete your fundraising form. Once your fundraising page has been approved it will appear online and you can direct supporters straight to your fundraising profile. All done!

Some extra notes:

Age

You must be aged 12 and over to take part in this challenge. Anyone under the age of 18 will need to be accompanied by an adult (someone 18 or older).

Sponsorship

If you know of any companies that might like to sponsor the ‘Apatchy Warriors’ team then please get in touch with Alopecia UK ([email protected]).  Sponsorship helps us to cover the cost of t-shirts and contributes to fundraising for the charity. If you know a company that could be a 'Total Hero' or 'Apatchy Pal' to our team of warriors this year, please ask them to check out our Sponsorship Opportunities here

Travel

Everyone must make their own way to the event. Most participants have come in cars to previous events and parking is free at this venue. Brighton Train Station is 1.9 miles away should you want to get the train, however, we’ll organise this kind of thing in the Facebook Group as it helps if people can arrive at the same time. 

Facebook group

Six weeks before the event we will set-up a dedicated Brighton Color Obstacle Rush Facebook group as it helps people to make arrangements and meet each other before the day.

Finish Line Festival

Upon completing the course we will dance our way to the Finish Line Festival! From there we will either head to a local pub for some food (details to follow) or we will stay and have fun together at the festival until we are ready to head home.

Extra note only for those with alopecia

As this is primarily an alopecia awareness event and an experience we would like to encourage as many with alopecia to take part in as possible.
