Lincoln Colour Dash returns with new inflatable obstacles

Inflatable colour dash.

Organisers of the annual Lincoln Colour Dash have announced the return of the city’s most vivid event, but with a special twist for 2018.

End of life charity St Barnabas Lincolnshire Hospice’s 5K Inflatable Colour Dash takes place at the Lincolnshire Showground on May 12.

Participants can still expect to complete the course whilst being splattered from head to toe in environmentally friendly coloured powder paint.

This year though, at each kilometre there will be the added hurdle of an inflatable obstacle.

People are invited to run in memory of a loved one or just for fun.

Laura Stones, Events Fundraiser for St Barnabas Hospice, said: “The Colour Dash is back with a new and exciting twist! Lincolnshire’s biggest and best Colour Dash has just got better.

“Our untimed fun run will see participants splattered from head to toe in coloured powder, with brand new inflatable obstacles at each kilometre. After the huge success of previous Colour Dash events we are expecting another sell-out this year.

“Colour Dash is for all ages, and you don’t have to be a runner to take part! Whether you run, walk or dance your way round, you should feel proud that you are doing it for such a good cause.

“St Barnabas works tirelessly to ensure patients and their families make the most of every single second they share, regardless of how much time remains.

“The money raised from events such as the Inflatable Colour Dash enables this work to continue.”

Early Bird prices (until March 2) start at £20
