Elisha Leachman, Age UKIW’s Fundraising Manager, said:

“We are so excited for this year’s Powder Run! We have made our colour course even bigger and better and we hope people will join us in running (or walking!) through our rainbow of powder, whilst helping to raise some much-needed funds your local Isle of Wight charity. Every penny we raise stays on the Island to support our older Islanders to love later life.”

Entry to the Powder Run is £10 for Adults, £5 for Children (13 or under) – small sponsorship is welcomed.

Every pre-registered participant gets a rainbow pack and a medal of completion.

The Powder Run is kindly sponsored by NFU Mutual, Red Squirrel Property Ltd,, Medina Construction Ltd, Wheelers Solicitors, InShape IOW, Wight Computers and Go Internet.
