Linden Homes and Galliford Try are inviting people to take part in the unique three kilometre paint run on the brand new South Devon Link Road, to raise money for local charity, Rowcroft Hospice.

On Saturday 1st August entrants will be able to walk or run on part of the new dual carriageway, just named the South Devon Highway, while being sprayed with washable paint at designated paint stations. The non-competitive event is open to everyone aged 13 and over.

There will be opportunities to photograph and film the colourful run, interview key members and even take part!

If you would like to attend the event please confirm your attendance by 3pm on Tuesday 28th July, using the above contact details. Please provide your name, organisation, mobile number and email address. You will need to wear good walking boots or shoes as the road is still under construction.

All funds raised from the event will help Rowcroft to continue providing its vital care across South Devon. For more details on the Colour Road Rush visit

This charity event is taking place in addition to the Walk this Way community open day which was held on 25 July. This event celebrated the construction of the road, and provided the public with a behind the scenes view.
