EACH’s Ely colour dash, which is a 3.1 mile fun run and sees participants showered with clouds of paint throughout, will be held on Saturday August 12 at King’s Ely.

Polly West, EACH Cambridgeshire community fundraiser, said: “As anyone who’s taken part before knows, it’s an impressive sight and great fun for all the family.

“There’s no competitive aspect, so you can run, jog or walk the five kilometres – just be prepared to get covered in coloured powder paint.”

Last summer more than 5,300 runners took part in colour dashes across seven locations, raising £150,000.
