EACH Colour Dash returns to Ely!


East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is thrilled to announce that tickets are on sale now for its popular Ely Colour Dash.

The event will be held on Saturday 11 August at King’s Ely, and it will be the third consecutive year the charity has hosted its colourful spectacular in the town.

Colour dashes are five-kilometre (3.1-mile) fun runs – the ‘fun’ aspect being that participants are showered with clouds of coloured powder paint as they run!

Polly West, EACH Cambridgeshire Community Fundraiser, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing a splash of colour to Ely once again this year. 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.”

EACH cares for children and young people with life-threatening conditions across East Anglia, and supports their families. For both families accessing care and those who have been bereaved, EACH is a lifeline at an unimaginably difficult time. It costs the charity almost £6 million a year to deliver its services and all funds raised at the Ely Colour Dash will go towards providing these.

Pricing is as follows:
