North East Autism Society returns with Run the Spectrum - 5K Family Fun Run, this is not about a run but more about having COLOUR FUN!

The event is less about your level of fitness and more about having a fun time! Participants are challenged to complete a course through the park whilst being doused from head to toe in vibrant colours in a huge Colour Party at the start and then as they pass through colour stations along the route. This year we will be also adding a foam machine station.


Registration is only £20.00 with a pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £40 to help our work with children, young people and adults with autism.


Children aged 15 and under can enter the event for FREE but must be accompanied by a participating adult (limit to 2 children per adult). Please note that children will not receive runners’ packs on the day but t-shirts and powdered paint can be purchased from our online-shop and ordered in advance.


Anyone under the age of 18 MUST be accompanied by a participating adult throughout the course.


If you have any other queries please contact the Fundraising Team on 0191 410 9974 or send us an email

Thank you to our event sponsors & supporters
