The colour run will take you on approximately a 4km tour of the UK’s first Young People’s Forest. This woodland creation project is working with #iwill – to make social action a way of life for 10-20 year olds. Young people are instrumental in the planning, design, development and creation of the woodland through a variety of volunteering and project roles they have taken on since the launch of the project in 2019.
