Tusker’s Colour Run

With 30 acres of riverside Onny Meadows, we are introducing Tusker’s Colour Run to the area this year at Shropshire Hills Discovery Centre! Get as messy as can be as you enjoy this 3.5K charity fundraising colour run around the Onny Meadows.

Tusker’s Colour Run is a 3.5 kilometre, un-timed race around the Onny Meadows where participants will be plastered with paint along the route as well as at the beginning and end.
