Vanilla Joe’s sponsor Colour Dash

Posted on 18 July 2016 by Monika Reichelt

Vanilla Joes in Irvine are supporting the Ayrshire Hospice Colour Dash this year by being a Colour Station sponsor. And guess from the pic which colour they’re sponsoring!? You got it! Yellow.

Senior Fundraising Officer Mary Drummond said “We are delighted to have Vanilla Joes in Irvine on board this year, particularly as we are moving the event to Irvine Beach Park. Vanilla Joes will be selling ice cream on the day, so after your 5K run make sure you treat yourself to a well-deserved ice cream.”

This will be the Ayrshire Hospice’s second Colour Dash and this year the event takes place on Sunday 27thth 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 kilometre, 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.
