Blackpool Colour Run returned to Starr Gate and saw runners of all ages running through seven powdered paint stations to finish all the colours of the rainbow.
It’s the 8th time Trinity Hospice has held its Colour Run – previously known as Colour Splash – since launching in 2015, and the event has raised more than £300,000 over the years.

The event was due to be held in July but was postponed due to a weather warning for storms.
There was even a torrential pour down this time, but thankfully it only last for about a quarter of an hour,
Organisers are estimating the weekend’s event will have raised more than £35,000 for the charity once all sponsorship has been returned.
Events Fundraiser Danny Hickes: “Blackpool Colour Run truly is our most colourful event, and it’s just wonderful seeing people wear their colours with pride and a huge smile on their face after they come through the final paint station.
“After a short spell of rain, the sun shone and everyone had an amazing time while supporting hospice care on the Fylde coast.
“The money raised at Colour Run comes from people signing up and raising incredible sums of money in sponsorship, and goes straight to providing vital care to the people in our community with a life-limiting condition as well as their families.
“We couldn’t put our events on without support from our event sponsors, the incredible people who give their time for free as volunteer marshals and the hundreds of people who take part, having fun in the name of charity.”
Blackpool Colour Run was supported by Sandcastle Waterpark, RNS Publications, Beaverbrooks and Eric Wright Group.
