East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) will be bringing a splash of colour to Ely again this year, with early bird tickets for one of the charity’s most popular fundraisers on sale now.
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.
The early bird ticket price - £17.50 for adults and £7.50 for children - closes on on Sunday June 18.
