This weekend, Run or Dye returns to Penshurst Place, bringing thousands of people to take part in the world’s most colourful 5k to the iconic venue. The stunning 14th century estate will host a storm of coloured dye inspired by the ancient Hindu festival of Holi. This year, the original 5k route is one of three options, with new 3.5k and 10k distances available to runners, allowing individuals of any ability to take part in the event, and encouraging mini runners to join in the fun.
Throughout the run, a number of dye stations will ensure that nobody can avoid the colour, and that each person, dressed in their complimentary white Run or Dye t-shirt, will come over the finish line covered in a full spectrum of vibrant shades. Following the run, participants can enjoy a colour festival, with various different games and competitions, where they will be engulfed in clouds of dye. Runners can also enjoy free access to the Penshurst Place adventure playground, as well as bouncy castles and an inflatable dart board, entertainment from live bands, dance music from our MC, and a number of different food stores, contributing to the fun festival atmosphere.
The event also supports Great Ormond Street Hospital’s Kiss it Better campaign, which is a charity established by Carmel Allen, whose daughter Josephine was treated at the hospital for Neuroblastoma. The money raised by the charity goes towards research into the causes, diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer, with the hope of raising awareness of the difficulties faced by the children and their families. Kiss it Better looks to ensure that every child facing cancer has access to the latest research and clinical trials, and that survival rates continue to increase. Each person who participates in Run or Dye has the opportunity to support Kiss it Better through fundraising efforts.

NOT a paid-for ad. I just like Penshurst place and happen to be doing the Hever HIM in September which is organised by the same people.
