Colour Dash

Colour Dash is BACK for 2016 with FOUR locations: Dublin, Cork, Galway and Sligo. Registration is open for Sligo! Please note that Cork and Dublin are sold out. We are also looking for volunteers to help us on the day.

Colour Dash is the Irish Cancer Society's 5km family fun run! Participants run, walk or jog as they are pelted by powdered paint. Each km represents a different cancer as well as cancer survivorship. Learn more!

How much is it? Where? When? Will the paint permanenty stain my clothes? Can I bring my dog? Are kids free?! Find out the answers to all your Colour Dash questions in our FAQs! 

Colour Dash is the perfect team-building activity for groups of any size, perfect for all ages and interests. Staff participate together, having fun, helping in the fight against cancer! Learn more.

Fundraising is optional at Colour Dash, but encouraged! 100% of funds raised go directly to funding cancer research and supporting services for people with cancer. Fundraise in person or online! Get started!
