A popular 5k fun run event which sees participants showered with clouds of coloured powder will return to Bury St Edmunds this summer in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice (EACH).

The EACH Colour Dash, in its fourth year of being staged in the town, will be held on Sunday, August 5, at Nowton Park – and tickets are now on sale.

Natasha Brame, EACH community fundraiser - Suffolk, said: “We’re very excited to be launching tickets for this ever-popular event in Bury St Edmunds.

“As anyone who’s taken part in a Colour Dash knows, it’s an impressive sight and great fun for all the family.

“There’s no competitive aspect, so you can run, jog or walk the course – just be prepared to get covered in coloured powder paint. It creates truly impressive multi-coloured results.

“Tickets are expected to sell quickly so please secure yours as soon as possible to avoid disappointment and take advantage of our special early bird offer.”

Tickets are priced at £20 (adults), £10 (child 5-12), £17.50 (Per person for a team - minimum of six people) and £50 (family ticket).

Early bird discounts are available for all tickets until April 12.
