VIDEO: Colour Run fun for Overgate Hospice

Savile Park was a riot of colour as thousands of people took part in this year’s Colour Run.

Crowds were covered in powdered paint as they made their way around the route.

The fun was all to raise funds for Elland-based Overgate Hospice and organisers had high hopes for the event, which was held on Saturday.

Just over 1,200 people took part last year, but this year saw a massive 1,700 people limber up to take part.
