Local hospice to host Lincolnshire’s first ever Colour Dash

10th December 2014

Runners are being urged to sign up for a colourful new charity event in Lincolnshire in May.

St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice has teamed up with local events supplier, Running Imp, to host the county’s first ever Colour Dash on Saturday 9th May at the Lincolnshire Showground.

The 5k route will be lined with paint stations which will see runners splattered from head to toe in environmentally friendly powdered paint, with a different colour for each station. Runners will also be given their own paint which they will be able to use during the run.

Becky Otter, Event Manager for St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice, said:

“We are extremely excited to be bringing the Colour Dash to Lincolnshire next year. The run promises to be a fun and vibrant event that is perfect for the whole family to enjoy. This is a real feel-good event that allows us to raise the vital funds we need to continue caring for our local community.”

To take part, participants must be at least five years old, and anyone aged 16 or under must be accompanied by an adult. Registration will open from 5th January, where adults can 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. The early bird price is valid until 27th February 2015.

Becky said: “Whether you run to celebrate the life of someone special or you simply want to get involved in something new and exciting, you will struggle to find a more colourful event in our region. We are hoping to see more than 1,000 people join us and cross that finish line in a rainbow of colours for hospice care.”

The registration fee includes a white T-shirt, sunglasses and your own bag of colour.
