Thousands of people injected some colour into the summer as they took part in the Irish Cancer Society's Colour Dash in Cork.

The fun run was held at the Old Railway Line in Mahon yesterday as throngs of people got involved.

The Colour Dash, sponsored by Aldi, is a 5km race where colourful paint representing different types of cancer and cancer survivorship are thrown at participants.

Money raised from Colour Dash will go towards the Irish Cancer Society's work.
