Hundreds of people enjoyed getting covered in glitter, bubbles and colourful powdered paint while raising vital funds for St. Margaret’s Hospice.

The first of our three Glitter Run Remix events took place on Sunday, May 19, at Wincanton Racecourse. And it's not long until we do it all over again in Wells and Taunton.

Around 450 people completed the 5k fun run, with a route featuring two biodegradable glitter stations and two bubble stations before a powder paint party at the finish. Some were taking part in memory of relatives or friends.

The Glitter Run Remix, sponsored by Western Power Distribution, returns next month at the Bishop’s Palace in Wells on Sunday, June 9, before the final event at Taunton Racecourse on Sunday, July 7. Places cost £18 for adults and £15 for children when booked in advance – a discount of £5 per person compared to the price if you just turn up on the day.

Sonia Bateman, events fundraiser, said: “It was a fantastic day and we’re delighted to see so many photos on social media of people enjoying themselves. We look forward to seeing more of our wonderful supporters for more fun times at the Glitter Run Remix in Wells and Taunton. By taking part and raising sponsorship they will be helping us to care for people across Somerset who are facing a life-limiting illness.”
