The Colourthon

With over £1.6 million pledged to date benefitting over 700 charities, the Colourthon is one of the top fundraising events in Essex! We believe the key to its success has been the fact that walkers can raise sponsorship for ANY registered charity of their choice.

The Colourthon is two events in one, the Moonlight walk being a half marathon and the Twilight a 10k challenge.

Both events are FUN walks around Southend by night with the emphasis being on FUN and FUNDRAISING! Everyone is encouraged to dress as brightly as their imaginations will allow! Remember, there will be spot prizes for those who impress us with their costumes!

Besides the obvious fun of dressing up, the walks serve highlight the many worthy causes represented by our walkers in full and spectacular colour!

So why not get involved and experience the great atmosphere together with all the sights, sounds and smells of the seaside by night.


Charity is what we’re all about at Colourthon, walk in the Colourthon and raise valuable funds for simply any charity of your choice* all we ask it that they’re registered with the UK Charity Commission. To date over 700 charities have already benefited form Colourthon, will yours be next?

Be a Steward

The Colourthon is organised totally on a voluntary basis and without doubt, one of the key roles is that of an Event Steward; quite simply, regardless of all the planning, the event would simply not be possible without them, so why not sign up to be one of our wonderful stewards and help cheer everyone along, well, what are you waiting for?
