A NORTH-EAST couple are preparing to get pelted with coloured powder at a charity run this summer.

Herschel Osinar, from Darlington, will take part in the 5km Colour Run, in Manchester, in July, to raise funds for the Royal Marsden Hospital.

The hospital, in London, specialises in cancer treatment and the 32-year-old chose to raise funds for it after a friend’s mother died from the disease.

She will compete alongside her 30-year-old partner, Chris Donald. Both work at the Student Loans Company, in Darlington.

Miss Osinar, who is originally from The Philippines, said she and Mr Donald were looking forward to the race and putting in plenty of training so they are able to run the course.

Participants are given the option to walk, jog or run.

People start the race in white are doused with coloured powder at every kilometre marker.

The Manchester event takes place on July 5 and one will be held in Sunderland on July 20.
