St Barnabas Hospice launches the 2019 Inflatable Colour Dash with exciting new inflatables to make the Colour Dash’s fifth consecutive year the biggest, brightest and best yet.

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice have announced that their popular Inflatable Colour Dash will be returning to the Lincolnshire Showground on Saturday 11th May 2019.

Last year thousands of people were showered in colourful powder paint and together raised more than £130,000 for local hospice care.

For 2019, alongside the ‘dash’ itself is the Colour Village: an area with live DJs, exciting activities and street food and drink for the whole family. Spectators of the Inflatable Colour Dash do not have to pay to gain access to the Colour Village to enjoy watching their friends and family.

The Inflatable Colour Dash is the perfect opportunity to come together and show your support for St Barnabas. This bright and vibrant 5k fun run will see you splattered from head to toe in powder paint at each kilometre and inflatable obstacles along the way. To take part, participants must be aged five years old and over, and anyone aged under sixteen must be accompanied by a paying adult.

Amelia Mochan, Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“The Inflatable Colour Dash is back – bigger, louder and more colourful than ever before! Lincolnshire’s first and best Colour Dash has just got better. Colour Dash is all about wearing your biggest smile, raising money and having fun with your friends and family. By the time you cross the finish line you will be showered in all the colours of the rainbow!

“The Inflatable Colour Dash is for all ages, fitness levels and abilities – you don’t have to be a runner to take part! Whether you run, walk or dance your way around, you should feel proud that you are doing it for such a good cause.”

Events like this are crucial in helping raise the funds needed to continue caring for and supporting over 10,500 people across Lincolnshire who are living with a life-limiting or terminal illness.

Amelia said:

“St Barnabas works tirelessly to ensure patients and their families make the most of every single second they share, regardless of how much time remains. The money raised from events such as the Inflatable Colour Dash enables this work to continue.”

Registration is now open where adults can take advantage of the early bird price of just £15 and £10 for children. Participants can also buy an early bird family ticket (two adults and two children) for just £40. The early bird prices are available until 8th February 2019.

The registration fee includes a bag of powder paint, neon sunglasses, a bottle of water, a polythene poncho (to keep cars clean on the ride home) and a commemorative medal.
