A charity colour-run is returning for its fourth outing this year in a bid to help smash the £100,000 target.

The Shrewsbury Colour Run is being organised by Lingen Davies Cancer Fund to continue the charity’s vital work raising awareness about cancer and supporting local cancer services. Known as the ‘happiest 5k in Shropshire’ hundreds of people have taken part since it was introduced in 2019. Since that time the event has raised £85,000 and organisers are aiming to beat the £100,000 mark for 2024.

Thanks to the owners of the Sansaw Estate in Hadnall, participants will be able to enjoy the 5km off-road route where volunteers will be stationed to cover them in a rainbow of colour paint. There will also be refreshments, a BBQ, glitter face painting and the chance to purchase Lingen Davies merchandise and find out about other charity events.

Shrewsbury Colour Run is taking place on Saturday 4 May at Sansaw Estate. Participants must pre-register to take part in the run through the charity’s website here. The entry fee includes a t-shirt, sunglasses, and a unique finisher’s medal.
