Dash and Splash of Colour

A colour explosion is coming to Ipswich this summer thanks to the launch of the brand new Treehouse Colour Dash.
On Saturday 12th July 2014, runners dressed in white T-shirts will descend on Christchurch Park for the event, which is the first of its kind to be hosted across the whole of Suffolk.

At every kilometre along the 5k route, runners and walkers will have a different coloured powdered paint thrown at them by The EACH Colour Pirates. By the end of the run, the white T-shirts will have become crazy artistic masterpieces. These fun and colourful events are taking the UK by storm, and are an innovative way to raise funds and have great fun at the same time.
Patsy Johnson-Cisse, EACH Suffolk Fundraiser and event organiser, said, “We’re so pleased to be launching the Treehouse Colour Dash in Suffolk and have had a lot of interest from the public already. People of all fitness levels can take part in either walking or running the course.

splash“The aim is to take part, have fun and finish the course wearing a big smile and of course your very own colour explosion. You can even compete with your friends to see how colourful you can become!”

The special colour powder is 100 per cent safe and each colour zone will have a specific colour. The only rule is to wear white at the start. Money raised in sponsorship for the event will go to EACH. This is a family, fun event, and also great for signing up with your work colleagues, gym buddies and those who enjoy fun runs. This event is for everyone of all fitness levels who would like to have fun and support EACH.

Nicola Atkinson of Fred Olsen Travel, who has sponsored the event, said, “We’re delighted to sponsor such a fun, colourful local event while supporting our local children’s hospice. The Fred Olsen Travel Team is signing up to run, walk and become colour pirates on the day.”
