The grounds of King’s Ely are to receive a big splash of colour this summer following the news that charity East Anglian Children’s Hospices is to hold Cambridgeshire’s first Colour Dash at the school.

Following on from successful events across the region, East Anglian Children’s Hospices (EACH) is to bring its colourful race to East Cambs on Saturday August 13.

Colour dashes see participants race around a 5km course as they are showered with clouds of coloured powder – creating impressive multi-coloured results.

EACH Cambridgeshire Community Fundraiser, Peter Law, is excited to finally welcome the race to the county. He said: “We are thrilled to be launching tickets for our Cambridgeshire Colour Dash. These events are such an impressive sight and great fun for all the family.

“It’s not a race, you can run, jog or walk the 5km route – just be prepared to be covered in colourful powered paint by our Colour Pirates!
