B Sunglasses Team take part in Newcastle Colour Rush Obstacle Run 2015

Last weekend, members of our B Sunglasses team headed to Gosforth Park in Newcastle to take part in Newcastle Colour Rush Obstacle Run. Created as an obstacle course which combined the fun of the popular colour runs which take their inspiration from the Indian festival of  Holi, the event saw over 800 participants battle 5k whilst being hurled with powdered paint all in the good name of charity…

Our B Sunglasses competitors Philly and Rachel teamed up with the guys at Elite Physique Fitness to participate; battling ball pools, climbing nets and foam to get to the finish line! B Sunglasses gave each of the 57 members of the team a pair of sunglasses each, with every member making a donation towards the 4Q Cancer Charity. One of Elite’s members JP has managed to raise £500 so far from the event and will be taking part in this weeks’ Total Warrior Challenge as well alongside our own B Sunglasses warriors!

Check out the video of the event below and see our marketing guys in full rainbow glory as they’re splattered with paint. Well done to everyone on the team for absolutely smashing the obstacle course and doing their bit in the fight against cancer!
