The hugely popular Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council’s Heart & Sole Colour Dash 2019 will be bursting into Lurgan Park on Sunday, May 12.

You don’t have to be an athlete to take part, you can run, walk or a mixture of both – the Colour Dash is entirely for fun!

The event kicks off at 2pm with a fun group warm up with the ever popular Freddie Fitness, before runners and walkers take to the course to get doused in a sea of colour.

Once over the finish line, there will be lots to keep you entertained.

bouncy castle, face painting, balloon modelling and of course our DJ counting down to a ‘colour throw’ that will fill the sky with an amazing rainbow of colour.

Adult tickets cost £15, children three to 14 years £10, a family ticket (two adults and two children aged three to 14 years) cost £35.

All proceeds from the event will be going to the British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland.

Councillor Julie Flaherty, Lord Mayor of Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon, said: “This is a fantastic event for everyone - novice runners and walkers of all ages and abilities – it is not a race just simply a colourful afternoon of fun.

“The colour dash is also a great opportunity for families and friends to get outdoors, enjoy the park, have fun, exercise and raise vital funds for charity.”

The event is organised by Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Borough Council in association with the Public Health Agency, British Heart Foundation Northern Ireland, Ulster Carpets, Intersport Rushmere and Tesco.
