Watermead Lake is expected to be full of colour with participants encouraged to don bright clothing from the period if they wish.

Vicky James, the charity's events fundraising manager said: "We have had hundreds of people join our previous colour rush and superhero events and we are looking forward to welcoming everyone to another fantastic, colourful and fun-filled day – this time with a new 80s twist to coincide with our 30th anniversary."

Registration opens from 10am with the run beginning at 11am.

The fun run offers two distances - 2km for youngsters and 5km for adults and the more adventurous.

Both runs take place around Watermead Lake in Aylesbury.

Places cost £10 for adults and £6 for children and can be booked online now at fnhospice.org.uk/80sfamilyfunrun
