Colour Dash

  • Colour Dash 2019 Banner

Colour Dash is back this summer! Join us at one of four locations across Ireland, in the nation's brightest race against cancer!


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 permanently stain my clothes? Can I bring my dog? 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 the society and help fund cancer research and support services for people with cancer. You can fundraise in person or online! Get started!
