The Newcastle Colour Run was on yesterday, and once again it was great fun morning, albeit a bit dusty! A very big thank you goes to the five volunteers who graciously wore personal exposure monitors for the entire run as part of an exposure assessment.
It was a little awkward running with a pump on your bum, but it was in the name of science!
We managed to collect 5 valid personal exposure samples for inhalable dust (one sample was invalid ahh!). All the samples have gone in for analysis, so now the waiting game begins. We certainly had some colourful sample filters, all in varying shades and varying amounts of dustiness. It will be interesting to see what the results say…so check back here in a few weeks and I’ll let you know!
I also found another good use for the GoPro, so for those of you who have never seen a Colour Run before – check this out so you can see what it’s all about!
