Burnham-on-Sea RNLI’s successful rainbow race returns for 2017
After the success of the rainbow race in 2016, Burnham-on-Sea RNLI volunteers are bringing it back to Burnham on Sea beach for a second year
There was huge positive feedback after last years' event with over 300 entrants enjoying a fantastic family day out. This year, the volunteers hope to make it bigger and throw much more paint! Every entrant will get a ‘T’shirt, a medal and their own bag of paint for the start line included in their entrance fee.
Main organizer Lesley Hart says; ‘It's a great event, getting the local community together and having a bit of fun whilst raising money for their own local lifeboat station. We are looking for sponsors for the paint points, especially local companies. Any interested, should ring me on 07854 087742, so that I can arrange.’
Extra information: Date of the event: 28 May 2017 at 2.00 pm
Number of spaces: 600 participants
Prices for this year are £12 per adult, £6 per child. £30 for a family of 4.
