East Ayrshire Council's Children and Young People’s Cabinet held a successful Colour Run at Howard Park in Kilmarnock this week.

Despite the rain, runners had great fun being doused with coloured powders as they completed the course.

The event was opened by Provost Jim Todd, who was joined by Councillor Elaine Cowan, Chief Executive Eddie Fraser, and Chief Education Officer Linda McAulay-Griffiths. 

Provost Todd said: “There was a fantastic turnout despite the weather and everyone had great fun.

"The members of the Children and Young People’s Cabinet put a lot of work into organising the event and they should all be extremely proud of their efforts.

"I had the honour of officially starting the Colour Run along with Sarah and Caleb, Chair and Vice Chair of the Children and Young People's Cabinet, and MSYPs David McGilp and Lucy MacKinnon.

"I was also delighted to congratulate all the participants at the finishing line. It really was a great event and certainly brought quite a bit of colour, and laughter, to a grey Kilmarnock day."

The event also included a barbeque provided by the Council's catering services.
