Early bird entry has opened for the Witney Colour Run 2022, which made a splash last year. 

There are 500 places for the race in total, and last year around 250 people took part smiling as they were bombarded with red, blue and yellow powder paint.

The up to 5k run will be held on May 29 this year at Witney Rugby Club and participants told to wear clothes they don't mind getting dirty.

The first 100 entries are being sold at a reduced 'early bird' price, and organisers say 'A T-shirt and pair of funky shades will be provided'.

Organisers said: "The Witney Colour Run celebrates health, happiness and friendship.

"Start the day in a white T shirt and get covered, head to toe in a rainbow of colours at 3 Colour Stations.

"Best of all you don’t even need to run. You can choose to run, walk, skip or even dance your way round the course.

"It is all about having fun."
