Hundreds of fundraisers put their best foot forward for charity today in a colourful run.

The third annual Rainbow Dash was to raise money for St Clare's Hospice at Jarrow.

It consisted of two 5k runs and a 1k race, where fundraisers were dusted in coloured powder.

Here's a slideshow of pictures taken by our photographer Tim Richardson.
