FRIDAY, August 11th, sees the second one-furlong (200m) Colour Fun Run at Tipperary Racecourse which aims to raise much needed funds for Pieta House and the Circle of Friends Cancer Support Centre.

Last year the hugely successful event raised over €70,000 for local cancer charities and a large number of trainers, jockeys and people working in the racing and breeding industry are expected to participate in this year’s event.
