After the success of last year, the 5k fun run will be returning once again to Alexandra Park, Hastings.

During the course there will be five colour zones which runners pass through, decorated with fantastic balloon displays kindly donated by Gifts and Giggles. Here, willing helpers known as the ‘Cheery Chuckers’ shower runners and their official 2017 Colour the Coast t-shirt with a special 100 per cent safe colour powder. At the end of the course runners and spectators will be invited to a finish line party where everyone will party together throwing powder into the sky to create colour clouds.

Jodie Cornford, fundraising team leader at the hospice, said: “The aim of Colour the Coast is to have a good time: less about speed, more about celebrating life. Colour the Coast always has a fantastic, family-friendly atmosphere and we are really looking forward to our fourth year. A huge thank you goes out to our sponsors Trade Paints, who have sponsored the event every year.”

Tickets will be available from Monday, April 3 at Tickets likely to sell fast.
