Hundreds of runners – including some in wigs and tutus - were showered in a rainbow explosion of paint as Wisbech’s annual Brinks Colour Run returned to the town yesterday (Sunday May 20).
Toddlers, teenagers and adults pushing babies in buggies were among more than 200 participants who put their best foot forward under the scorching sun.
Taking place in Wisbech Town Park and open to everyone – regardless of age and physical ability – there was also music, commentary, face painting, dancing and refreshments throughout the day.
Members of Three Counties Running Club (TCRC) were also on-hand to support runners by supplying the paint splashers, marshalls and helping to set up the course.
The event was held to raise money for Octavia Hill Birthplace House Museum. Octavia Hill was born in Wisbech and was the co-founder of the National Trust.
