Prestwick Airport climbs on board the Colour Dash

Ayrshire Hospice are delighted to welcome Prestwick Airport on board their Colour Dash trip to Irvine Beach Park on Sunday 7th August, where they will be kindly sponsoring the blue colour station!

Sonia Rafferty, Glasgow Prestwick Airport Human Resource Director, said:

“We’re delighted to be taking part in the hospice’s colour dash event. It is set to be a fun filled day and we’ll be doing our best to make sure that the runners finish their 5km covered head to toe in our new corporate blue colour!

“Whilst we will be having fun, our main aim is to support this worthy cause. Ayrshire Hospice is a charity we have supported over a number of years. Our staff and their families and friends have experience of using Ayrshire Hospice’s services and although it is an extremely difficult time for all concerned, the hospice is always invaluable in providing comfort and support. We hope that we can do our part on the day to help raise as much awareness and much needed funds as possible”.

This will be the Ayrshire Hospice’s second Colour Dash and this year the event takes place on Sunday 7th August 2016 at Irvine Beach Park. Supported by West FM, Halls, Tesco Ayr and Irvine, Vanilla Joes, Prestwick Airport, Sercon, Booth Welsh and the Irvine Herald it’s guaranteed to be the most colourful, fun 5k you’ll ever run!

Participants don't have to run - you can walk, skip or dance the distance. Prepare for a kaleidoscope of colour to rain down over you and your fellow runners every kilometer, leaving you looking like a rainbow. There will be a variety of entertainment to get you warmed up beforehand and more afterwards, when you can sit back and enjoy your well-deserved hot dog or burger. 

The registration fee which includes a t-shirt, sunglasses and a Colour Dash medal is £20 for adults and £10 for under 16's (who must be accompanied by an adult). Children 5 and under are free. A family ticket of two adults and two children is £50.
