Run or Dye

I am on a bit of a weight loss mission with summer holidays coming up and for those of you that know me, will know that I am into running now and again. Now the evenings are lighter it will be easier to run more and get back into it properly. I would love to improve my 5k time and get it past that drasted 30 minutes!

I have always wanted to do a colour run and I’m excited to be doing one in October, with Run or Dye. The Run or Dye Series will start on 18th April in Manchester and will be reaching every corner of the UK in 2015 with 15 events already confirmed and more to follow. Inspired by the ancient Hindu festival of Holi, also known as the ‘Festival of Colours’, Run or Dye gives runners, walkers and all speeds in-between, the opportunity to experience and celebrate in full colour the thrill of the Festival and introduce the idea of ‘living life on purpose’.

Participants can run dressed in white or their favourite and most extravagant costumes. As part of registration all participants will receive a goody bag with their white t-shirt, their very own dye packs and plenty more to get geared up for the most colourful 5km ever experienced. After crossing the finish line, runners, and spectators, can celebrate in the world famous Dye Festival as the full force of the brilliant colours are blasted all around. The explosion of dye ensures that this really is the most colourful 5km in the world!
