Last updated at 13:40, Friday, 18 July 2014
An energetic new fundraising event will add splashes of colour to Carlisle.
Up to 300 people are expected to take part in the city’s first ‘colour run’ next month.
The event, at Hammond’s Pond, is poised to be a big fundraiser for Hospice at Home Carlisle and North Lakeland.
Fundraiser Julie Blundell said: “This is an exciting event for the charity. We are pleased this is the first of its kind for the city and hope that next year we can build on this to offer more places.”
The event will cover a 5km route along which competitors can walk, jog, run, skip or dance. At various points they will run through ‘colour stations’ where they will be showered with powdered paint in vibrant colours.
Julie added: “We hope participants have a fabulous time and money raised will help us to continue to provide high quality end-of-life care for our patients and support to families and carers too.
“Let’s join together and make this an afternoon to remember.”
The run takes place on Sunday, August 31.
