CLOUDS of vibrant colour will be coming to Ammanford next month in the town’s first ever Rainbow Run.

The debut event is taking over Ammanford Recreational Ground on Saturday, September 30 and the sign up is open now.

Colour runs, based on the Indian Holi festival of colours, take place over all over the world and involve runners having multicoloured chalk paint thrown over them while they complete the course.

Over 100 runners have already entered the Ammanford Rainbow Run and there is still plenty of space to join in.

The event is being organised by local business owner Stacey Bowen and Ebony Morgans, who recently won the title of Miss Junior Teen Carmarthen and will be competing in the grand final of Miss Junior Teen Great Britain 2017 later this year.

15-year-old Ebony from Ammanford is fundraising for Together for Short Lives in the lead up to the Great Britain competition.

She has teamed up with Stacy, owner of Forget-Me-Not in Shopper’s World, who has chosen to raise funds for local charity RYAN4LEUKAEMIA.

RYAN4LEUKAEMIA was set up by Ryan Davies, who died last November after a lengthy battle with acute myeloid leukaemia, to raise money to help hospitals and leukaemia patients.

Organisers said the run will not only leave Ammanford red in the face but blue, green, yellow, orange and purple too.

There will a bouncy castle, DJ, food stalls and plenty of fun for all ages on the day.

Anyone of any age or ability can take part in the run, but children under 11 need an adult to run with them.

Although the paint is non-staining, organisers is also recommended that those running with buggies cover the fabric just in case it discolours.

There are a number of different ways to get involved in the run. Individuals can sign up for a pack on the Rainbow Race 2017 Facebook page.

Adult standard entry is £20 and the pack includes a white t-shirt, headband, wristband, whistle, goggles, colour sachet, event booklet and sponsor form.

Adult VIP packs are available for £30 and also include a rainbow tutu, rainbow stockings, rainbow wig, rainbow tie and glitter sachet.

Business packages are also available for teams of 5 or more representatives from a business. These packs are available for £15 for standard and £25 for VIP.

The business will then get a team registration form.

Packs are available for collection from Forget-Me-Not and LYNConnections in Shopper’s World, Ammanford. Local business wishing to sponsor the event can get in contact with Stacy on 07460 749480.
