More than 200 people wearing special event t-shirts - some even in fancy dress - completed the 5km course lined with 'colour splashers' who threw bright powder over them.

Volunteers from the Three Counties Running Club helped organise the run which was in aid of the Angles Theatre in Wisbech.

Keavey Nelson, from TinFish Communications who were behind the event, said it was their biggest turnout to date.

"Everyone had a great time and all the family could take part in the day," she said.

"The course itself covers four-and-a-half laps of Wisbech Town Park.

"Plans for next year are already underway and we are hoping that it will continue to grow in popularity."

Music, commentary, face painting and refreshments were also part of the event on May 19.

Competitors ranged from toddlers to teenagers, and even some grandparents who all finished covered in multi-coloured powders.
