Brynmawr was lit up this afternoon by the colour pink as men, women and even dogís donned wigs, tops and tutuís to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.
People walked and ran from Pontharri Path, opposite Brynmawr Comprehensive School, and along the Sustrans Cycle way to the Brecon and Monmouthshire Canal for eight and a half miles to raise money.
Around 800 walkers took park in the In The Pink event and although the weather was overcast they brought a flash of colour to the scenery.
Organiser Jan Sullivan said: "Itís the first time that we have held the event on this route and judging by the smiles, everyone is enjoying it. "Itís a spectacular sight as thereís a trail of pink snaking down the mountain. We just want to raise awareness of the charity and raise funds.
Itís been a great day for everyone involved." One of the walkers was Amy Wright, who along with 26 friends and family members, was raising money in memory of her mum, Claire Wright who died of breast cancer in 2011. Another group of friends from Ebbw Vale all donned full Oompa-Loompa costumes to raise money. The group take part every year, always opting for a different theme and have raised thousands of pounds by taking part in such events.
Tired but still smiling, the runners arrived at Llanfoist Community Centre, completing the track in around an hour, while walkers took around two and a half hours. This event is part of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal's 200th Anniversary Celebrations.
