MICHAEL So­bell Hos­pice Colour Dash is set to brighten up Uxbridge.

En­trants will be cov­ered in coloured paint dur­ing the run on Sun­day, Septem­ber 27, be­gin­ning at noon.

The event, a fun-filled walk, run or dance around a 5km route, will take place at Hilling­don House Farm Sports Ground, in Uxbridge.

En­trants will wear white and be pelted with a dif­fer­ent colour at var­i­ous colour sta­tions along the course of the route.

By the time they reach the end, the run­ners will be cov­ered head to toe with a rain­bow of colours.

Spec­ta­tors will be able to buy bags of colour to throw at the run­ners in spe­cific lo­ca­tions dur­ing the run.
