St Barnabas’ Lincolnshire Hospice has announced that their Colour Dash will be returning to the Lincolnshire Showground next May.

Last year 3,500 people were showered in environmentally friendly powder paint and together raised more than £120,000 for local hospice care.

Becky Otter, event manager for St Barnabas’, said: “We are delighted to announce after the huge success of last year’s Colour Dash, the fun-filled event is back.

“The Colour Dash is proving to be our most popular event and has sold out in the two previous years.

“Colour Dash is all about wearing your biggest smile, raising money and having fun with your friends and family.

“You can run, walk, or dance the five kilometre route and when you cross the finish line you will be showered in all the colours of the rainbow.”

The Colour Dash is a route lined with paint stations which will see runners splattered in paint at every kilometre

To take part, participants must be aged five years old and over, and anyone aged 16 or under must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Becky added: “This year we are hoping to raise in excess of £200,000 to help St Barnabas’ care for more patients and their families, every day of the year.

“The Colour Dash is a bright and vibrant event that brings the whole family together, whether they run in memory of a loved one or just to have fun.”

Registration for the event is open now and adults can currently take advantage of the early bird price of just £15 and £5 for children.

Participants can also buy an early bird family ticket (two adults and two children) for just £35.
