Ely Colour Dash

Have fun, run, and raise money for a fantastic cause to boot

Every summer, East Anglia Children’s Hospices (EACH) brings a splash of colour to Cambridgeshire with its hugely popular Ely Colour Dash. It’s a 5k run, during which runners are showered with clouds of brightly-coloured poster paints while raising vital funds for this fantastic charity, which cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions and supports families across East Anglia. 

This year’s event takes place on 12 August at King’s Ely school, starting at 11am. Tickets cost £20 for adults and £10 for children up to 15, and the price covers entry, a T-shirt, a medal and a pot of paint for each runner.
