Sign up for charity beach run in Burnham-On-Sea for RNLI and BARB

Burnham-On-Sea RNLI and BARB Search & Rescue are set to brighten up this summer's annual emergency services day with a fundraising Colour Run - and entries are now open online.

The two organisations are working together to start the new event at this year's 'Escape Day', which will be held on Sunday 7th August.

There are just under three weeks to register and be sure of receiving a finisher’s medal. Entries may still be made after then, but without the guarantee of a medal.

On August 7th, from 1pm, after an initial warm up with Victoria Taylor from Burnham Bootcamp, participants will run, jog or walk along the 3.5km trail from Burnham's town jetty to the Burnham Lighthouse while being sprayed in vibrant powder paint along the way!

It is set to be a fun-filled, colourful event raising money for two local lifesaving organisations.

Children under 14 must be supervised by an adult entrant at all times during the race and those children aged between 14-17 can run alone providing parental consent is given.

Entries are £12 per adult and entry forms may be collected from the RNLI shop, Hair of The Dog barbers or Coffee Corner cafe.

You can also register and pay online here. Alternatively, the forms can be emailed to you so by contacting the organisers at Forms and full payment should be returned to the RNLI shop in Burnham High Street. However, be quick, as there are only 600 places!

The proceeds will be split between the two organizing units; Burnham-on-Sea RNLI and BARB Search and Rescue, to fund the current appeals of each unit. Event organisers are Lesley-Ruth Hart, Dan Fear (RNLI), Mike Lowe and Roger Flower (BARB).

Co-organiser Lesley-Ruth Hart said: "This will be a first for Burnham-On-Sea and the interest on our Facebook page has been incredible. We are very excited about it and are really pleased that people are getting behind it. It is set to be a brilliant event for Burnham-On-Sea and one we hope will continue for years to come."
