Hundreds of Evesham runners and spectators take part in Valley Asparagus Colour Run

HUNDREDS of Evesham residents had fun in the sun at a new event celebrating the British Asparagus Festival.

More than 500 runners and spectators turned up for the inaugural Valley Asparagus Colour Run, held on Sunday, May 29.

Competitors of all ages took to The Valley's countryside and were covered in green powder paint, from the Asparagus green paint bombs that came raining down on competitors during the 5,000 kilometre course.

The event also featured a music and event commentator who created an excellent atmosphere for the event, celebrating the asparagus festival that runs until June 21.
