Welcome to the Rainbow Run sponsored by RS Components.
The Rainbow Run is a brand new element of the Cambridgeshire Summer Run. It’s been designed to reflect our support for inclusivity and diversity in society and specifically in sport and the workplace. Our aim is to bring together all walks of life, backgrounds and a diverse community of sexualities and gender-identity based cultures.
The Rainbow Run is an inclusive opportunity to run 10 miles on fully closed roads. We have a beautiful out and back route from the East of England Showground down to the picturesque and historic village of Elton. The event has thousands lining the street giving you the most amazing support ever, as well as features a Rainbow Mile, where you’ll find entertainment, music and lots of colour!
The Rainbow Run sponsors are passionate advocates for inclusivity and diversity because of the benefits to corporate wellbeing:
’At RS Components we are excited to be sponsoring the Rainbow Run in support of the LGBTQ+ community. Through our sponsorship we are helping to demonstrate the importance of diversity and inclusion and that every person should be able to bring their true self to work each and every day. By doing this we help to create a work environment that enables innovation, creativity, team work and happiness, ensuring the success of our people, our organisation and the communities we operate in.‘’
The Rainbow Run will be incorporated in to not only the Cambridgeshire Summer Run but also the Tour of Cambridgeshire festival, including start times and event protocols. The Rainbow Run will start within the CSR on Saturday 6th June 2020.
In Aid Of Mermaids UK
We are very pleased to have Mermaids UK as our Rainbow Run’s Charity Partner. Mermaids supports gender-diverse children and young people until their 20th birthday, as well as their families and professionals involved in their care. Transgender and gender-variant children and teens need support and understanding, as well as the freedom to explore their gender identity. Whatever the outcome, Mermaids is committed to helping families navigate the challenges they may face.
When you enter in to the Rainbow Run, you have the chance to make a donation to Mermaids. For each of the donations made by participants in the Rainbow Run, we will pledge to match the donation made.
