How Colour Dash works

At Colour Dash, participants run, walk or jog as they are pelted by powdered paint at each kilometre along the route. Each km represents a different cancer as well as cancer survivorship:

Buy your ticket online or by calling us on CallSave 1850 60 60 60. Once registered you'll receive a letter with your wristbands which you bring to the event to get your Colour Dash t-shirt.

Where the money goes

Money raised at the Colour Dash supports the Irish Cancer Society's mission to stop cancer. We do this by funding life-saving cancer research as well as services and care for people affected by cancer all over Ireland. We are 98% funded by the public so we rely on events like Colour Dash to be able to provide these services and continue to fund research that saves lives.
