RUN through the colours of the Age UK Isle of Wight rainbow, as its popular Powder Run returns this year.

The charity has called for fundraisers of all ages and all abilities to take on its fun-filled 2k colour course in September.

Participants will be covered in every colour of the rainbow as they run, or walk, around the family friendly, fully accessible course.

The event will be held at Porchfield Cricket Club on Saturday, September 7, as part of the club’s annual fun day, featuring dog shows, a funfair, games, bouncy castle, bake sale and barbecue.

Age UK Isle of Wight fundraising manager Elisha Leachman said: “We are so excited for this year’s Powder Run.

"We have made our colour course even bigger and better and we hope people will join us in running — or walking — through our rainbow of powder, while helping to raise some much-needed funds a local Isle of Wight charity.

"Every penny we raise stays on the Island to support our older Islanders to love later life.”

The Powder Run costs £10 for adults and £5 for children aged 13 and under. Sponsorship is also welcomed.

Everyone who registers ahead of the event will receive a rainbow pack and a medal.
