This 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 Lincolnshire Hospice, said: “We are delighted to announce after the huge success of this 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 5k route and when you cross the finish line you will be showered in all the colours of the rainbow!”

The Colour Dash is a 5k 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 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.
