MORE than 100 children had the colour put in their cheeks last Friday, as well as in their hair, clothes and shoes.

The Live Borders Colour Run at Kelso Swimming Pool proved to be a huge success as a total of 130 youngsters completed the assault course.

As well as a slippery water slide the competitors faced several obstacles as well as splats of paint during the sun-kissed event.

The two runs - for four-to-eight years and eight-to-12s - also had many parents joining in.

And they were all rewarded with an inflatable session in the pool to cool down.
