Thousands of runners are set to make their way through clouds of powdered paint when the Galloway’s Southport Colour Blast returns to Princes Park for a second year.

The event, which will raise money for Galloway’s, Southport’s local sight loss charity, will take place on Sunday 9th July. Last year’s event raised £10,000, with over 400 participants, helping Galloway’s to provide vital practical and emotional support to those living with sight loss in the local community.

Anna Eddowes-Scott, Galloway’s Fundraiser and event organiser, said: “We’re so excited to see the Southport Colour Blast returning this summer. Our first ever Colour Blast last year proved to be really popular and the buzz surrounding the event afterwards was amazing!”

“The Colour Blast is all about coming together having fun with your friends and family, finding your biggest smile and showing your support for your local sight loss charity. You can run, walk, skip, hop or dance the 5k route. However you chose to get around the course, the one thing that you can be sure of is that when you cross the finish line you will be painted like a rainbow!”

The Colour Blast is a 5k route with environmentally friendly powder paint stations which will see runners showered in paint at every kilometre. To take part, participants must be aged six years old and over, and anyone aged 16 and under must be accompanied by a paying adult.  Online sign up is now open at www.southportcolourblast.eventbrite.co.uk

Local businesses are also being encouraged to get in touch with the sight loss charity, to find out about the various ways that they can get behind and support this year’s event.
