It’s set to be a sell-out race for one of Ely’s most popular events, the colour dash, as it returns to the city for its third year running.

The event, held at King’s Ely on Saturday August 11, will see entrants pace their way through the five-kilometre (three mile) course, showered with clouds of powder paint.

Hosted by East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), the race has no competitive aspect, instead organisers are calling it a “truly impressive, multi-coloured” fun run.

Polly West, EACH Cambridgeshire community fundraiser, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing a splash of colour to Ely once again this year.”

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia, and supports their families.
