Irish Cancer Society launches their vibrant new 5k, the Colour Dash, due to take place in Phoenix Park.

During this 5k colour dashers of all shapes, sizes and speeds will start the run wearing a white t-shirt that is transformed, like a canvas into a colourful work of art. At each kilometre, a different colour - representing a different cancer - of powder paint will be thrown at participants, creating a kaleidoscope of colour.

Money raised from the Colour Dash will go towards the Irish Cancer Society’s work to help people reduce their risk of getting cancer, to support those living with cancer and supporting on-going research into better ways to diagnose and treat cancer. This unique event is also about having fun with your family and friends. At the finish line the party really starts and the air is filled with music and the entertainment begins.

The Irish Cancer Society and Crown are calling on people to add some colour to their lives and sign up today to take part in the Irish Cancer Society’s Colour Dash and help run all over cancer. To register for your place CallSave our team on 1850 60 60 60 or visit
