What is the Colour Blast Dash

Colour Blast Dash is an amazingly fun-filled feel-good race with a twist!

Sign up, pull on one of our Colour Blast white t-shirts and prepare to have the messiest fun you’ve ever had on a Sunday morning. Join with friends, family or colleagues and you can choose to run, walk or even dance around our 2.5k or 5k course where you will be ‘blasted’ with coloured powder, and cross the finish line wearing all the colours of the rainbow, and a huge smile!

'Our Colour Blast Dash events always enjoy fantastic support and create a real party atmosphere. Please ensure that you book your tickets early - in 2015 and 2016 we completely sold out of tickets, and we would hate you to miss out on all of the fun! Book today for your places at the brighest colour run in town.


Our Courses:

We have two courses on offer:

    • Colour Dash Rascals 2.5K (for anyone aged over 4 years of age*)
    • Colour Blasters 5K (for anyone aged over 10 years of age*)

Every participant will receive a Colour Blast Dash T-shirt and race number. Colour Blasters completing the 5k will also receive a celebratory packet of paint for the group paint release. Paint-tastic!
*Anyone aged under 16 must run with an adult (someone aged over 18 who is responsible for them and who will also need a ticket to take part.).
One adult can run with up to 5 children.
The route is completed within the park on a clearly marshalled and signposted route.  During the race you will pass through marked colour stations, where you will be blasted with different coloured powders.

Our paint and Group Paint Release Finale:

Everyone is invited to our spectacular paint release Finale at the end of the race. Runners and spectators, regardless of age, can all share the rainbow colour experience!
Every runner completing the 5k Colour Blaster will receive a free paint packet as part of their entry fee. Additional paint packets and merchandise can be bought from our stall in the event village, with all proceeds going to The Laura Centre charity. 

Our Paint is 100% biodegradable and kind to the environment, people and water. It passes the UK testing standards for toys EN71 and is used extensively within the Holi Festival events seen across the United Kingdom.


The Colour Blast Dash is a fun-filled family experience, however you WILL get covered in coloured powder paint. Please think about who is taking part and what you will wear on the day. Although our powder is safe (it is 100% biodegradable and kind to the environment, people and water) it can stain clothing and footwear.
Why not dress for the occasion and choose fancy dress, or purchase some of our colour crazy accessories from our store or event village stall – with all profits going.

A family experience:

Come along with friends and family to join in the colour crazy fun or invite them to watch from our events village, where a selection of merchandise, food and drink will be available to buy.

Pack a picnic and make a morning of it in the park to enjoy your colour experience!
