Street parkrun paints a rainbow

Over the past 6 weeks Street parkrun have been busy running, jogging or walking on Saturdays and painting the local streets with vibrant rainbow colours.

Details are posted to the Street parkrun Facebook page each week with participants adding their photos below the post. Matt Dorber collates all the photos to produce a montage of the colour for the week:

Weeks 1 to 3
Red, Orange and Yellow

Rainbow week 3


Week 4 Green

Week 5 Blue

Week 6 Purple (indigo)

If you've missed the fun and want to join in, next week is Pink (violet). If you don't do Facebook, photos can be added to flickr or e-mailed to

And if you've missed taking part in your favourite colour there will be a bonus multicolour week as a grand finale for running in whichever colour you like.


Let's paint the town rainbow saying a huge thank you to NHS and essential key workers who brought us through lockdown, celebrating gay pride, our rainbow coloured nation and of course looking forward to brighter days ahead :)

We will get through this together and we will be back!

Stay safe and be kind everyone
