Run or Dye, the world’s most colourful 5km  is coming to Manchester

Run or Dye, the world’s most colourful 5km, will be coming to Manchester on Saturday 18th April for a colour-filled 5km run in the beautiful Platt Fields. Mancunians of all ages and abilities are encouraged to take part in the most colourful party the city has ever seen.


Nearly 500 people have already entered into Manchester Run or Dye with participants encouraged to run, jog or walk to the finish line, getting covered head-to-toe in colour as they go. Four Dye Zones throughout the route will ensure there’s no getting away from the all-encompassing and full-on brilliance of the most colourful 5km in the world.


The Manchester event will be the first Run or Dye of the 2015 series, kicking off a year of fun and fitness for people across the UK. Participants jogging, walking and dancing through Platt Fields will take in the stunning Platt Hall as well as Queen Elizabeth II Jubilee Gardens. South of the city centre the beautiful location will make getting fit and experiencing the vivid colour of Run or Dye a unique and one of a kind day out.


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 and run ready or in 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. | @runordye
