8 - Rainbow Run – 25 June 2016 09:00 – 16:00, West Pier, Dun Laoghaire:

C’mon now let’s be honest for a minute, who doesn’t love mad colours and cheesy 90s pop tunes? The type of people you don’t want to be your mates, that’s who. And by extension the type of people who won’t be at this year’s Rainbow Run! Run along the gorgeous Dun Laoghaire coastline, just a 20 minutes DART ride from Jacobs Inn, as you get pelted with paint dust so that by the time you arrive at the finish line for a 90s dance party you’ll be bopping as works of art, not just as people. Tickets are €25. http://rainbowrun.ie/
