Friday’s event brought together pupils from Years 7-11 to take part in five 1K laps, and at the completion of each lap they were pelted with a different colour paint to show off each lap completed. Along the way, the children ran through a colour cannon, and at the end of the run they enjoyed a colour extravaganza where they got to throw paint in the air.

The event was managed by Inspire Races in Cringleford, and a warm up was provided by Mr Dod who took the youngsters through a range of stretches and dance mvoes to get them warmed up before the run was officially started by two-time Olympian Paul Evans.
