Early birds sign up now for a run with a colourful twist!

Applications are now open for this year’s run and alimited number of early-bird discounted places are on offer for the event, which will take place on Sunday 1 September. The charity is encouraging families in particular to sign up and raise funds.
Says Helen Tempest, challenge events manager at the RAF Association: ‘We’d love to get as many people as possible from the Cambridgeshire community to visit their local RAF station and take part in this crazy, colourful event. All the money raised will go to projects supporting members of the RAF family.’
Colour Chaos costs £10 per person to enter, while children under five can enter free of charge; £35 early-bird tickets are available for families of up to five people for a short time only.
On the day, volunteers and serving personnel will cover the runners in powder paint as they attempt to complete the course. All runners will receive a free Colour Chaos T-shirt and a medal. Places are available now, and you can sign up at www.rafa.org.uk/colourchaos
