When two become one…
The inaugural Cherry Chase was held in 2014 and was a huge success with over 540 runners. Thanks to the fantastic support of our partners and the community, the event continued to grow with 645 runners in 2015 and over 140 volunteers.
The inaugural Cherry Queen Entrant Colour Run was held in 2016 as a National Cherry Festival fundraising event for the PCYC. It was a huge success with over 800 participants and a huge amount of supporters.
This year the two events will be teaming up to hold the Cherry Chase: Chase the Colour event. This includes a professional fun run event in the morning that will include professional timing, runner bibs, on course support, BBQ and entertainment followed by the much more social Colour Run including loads of colour and entertainment on course.
The Youth Council and Young PCYC aim to make the Cherry Chase: Chase the Colour a premier community event for Hilltops region.
So come and join us on Sunday 12 November 2017 for one or both events… why not get sweaty in the Cherry Chase and then stay on and join in for the Colour Run.
What are we fundraising for…
This event is all about showcasing the strong, supportive and active community of the Hilltops region. Once we give you an amazing experience all funds raised will go towards supporting youth initiatives in the Hilltops region.
The goal for the 2017 Cherry Chase is 1,000 participants!
