This weekend’s Sunderland Color Run has been cancelled.
The event, which sees runners covered in dry paint as they make their way around a 5km course, was due to be held in Commercial Road, Hendon, on Sunday.
But a message on the event website – www.thecolorrun.co.uk/sunderland – reads: “Thanks for visiting The Color Run Sunderland.
“This event has been cancelled for 2015.
“If you would like more information or are a registered participant of the Sunderland event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Thousands of people took part in last year’s event, which took place around the Stadium of Light.
Organisers announced in July that the Color Run would be coming back to Sunderland, citing the incredible response to the 2014 event.
