Thanks for your comments on yesterdays upload.

This was taken this morning at a colour run to raise money for Overgate Hospice, Halifax. After once round the course, at each subsequent kilometre, the runners were showered in coloured dust.

Thanks for looking!

No, Alan, the "chuckers" were stood on the left. I squealed rather loudly when i saw this on the computer. I could not have done that if i had tried!! Your UA is much appreciated.

Just what is needed when out of breath - a face full of dust.
Hope she doesn't have hay fever.

Amazing what goes on there...
Great action caught on camera! Grin
Only other time I have seen this was in India the Festival of colour where we all get covered in coloured dust
and I had to throw away all my clothes because none of those colour powders wash off...
