Get fit, raise money for charity, and come out of it looking like a human rainbow. What’s not to like?
The Parents Consortium, the Messenger’s Charity of the Year, enjoyed huge success with their summer Colour Dash last year, so much so that the 2016 race is already being prepared.
Contestants walk, run or skip along a 5km route, with coloured powder thrown over them at each 1km marker.
Jeskyns Community Park in Gravesend will play host this time, taking over from Swanley Park, with all ages invited to take part – just be sure to wear old clothes and a white T-shirt!
Marketing manager Caroline Brinkman said: “The 2015 Colour Dash was a huge success with 320 people participating. We had great feedback so we decided to do this again. It is an event that can include our disabled children and it is great for autistic children with the sensory effects of the colours and the powder.
“Lots of our member families joined in and had great fun. I found that it introduced new supporters to the charity that did not know anything about our services to disabled children.

“Diane Marsh from Gravesend and Meopham Rotary will be the club president from July and she really wanted to support us with this great event.”
It kicks off at 10am on Sunday, July 10 and you can book your place by emailing email@example.com or calling 01322 668501.
The entry fee for adults is £16, 11 to 16-year-olds pay £10 and it is £5 for under-11s. A family of two adults and two children can go for just £40.
