Former England Women’s Rugby Team Captain, Catherine Spencer, has expressed delight that more than 500 participants are expected to paint the town red at the charity fundraising event. Catherine is an honorary patron of the KM Charity Team which is organising the KM Colour Run being staged at Betteshanger Country Park, near Deal.

Catherine, from Hythe, is supporting the KM Charity Team’s green travel and literacy work with schools as well as the adrenaline activities the charity stages throughout the year.  

“There are so many opportunities and challenges throughout Kent to take part in as a family or with friends or with work colleagues,” she said. “There’s the KM Colour Run, KM Dragon Boat Race, KM Assault Course Challenge and finally the KM Abseil Challenge.”

Advance booking for the KM Colour Run has now closed but participants are welcome to turn up and pay on the day in cash at a cost of £20 per adult and £10 per child.
