Adding a dash of colour

An Arbroath youth theatre company is adding a little colour to their fund-raising efforts for this year’s Relay For Life campaign.

The LimeLight Company’s Colour Run will be held at Arbroath Sea Fest on Saturday, August 9, and features a five-kilometre run where participants get doused in paint powder at various points, culminating in a ‘Final Throw’ which is reminiscent of the Hindu festival of Holi.

The event is open to everyone from children to adults, couch potatoes to regular runners and uses safe, eco-friendly plant-based powder dye.

Register at, with an early bird offer of £15 available until Monday, July 28, and then £21 thereafter.

Included in the price is entry to the LimeLight Colour Run, entry to the Sea Fest, drink at the Millgate Beer tent, although ID is needed for alcohol; and a Finishers Bag, which includes a T-shirt, wristband, medal and various other goodies.
