There is one week left for those wishing to buy early bird tickets to take part in Cambridgeshire’s first East Anglian Children’s Hospices (EACH) Colour Dash.

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

Tickets for the run on the grounds of King’s Ely on Saturday August 13 are currently at a discounted rate, which is set to end on Wednesday June 22.

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!”
