Run Or Dye Set For Derbyshire

Run or DyeBilled as the ‘world’s most colourful 5k’, the Run or Dye series will be coming to Derbyshire on Saturday 10 October. Nearly 500 people have already entered the event, which will be held in the parkland of Chatsworth in the heart of the Peak District.

Participants are 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 kaleidoscopic fun of the event.
 
Standing on the east bank of the River Derwent, Chatsworth looks across to the low hills that divide the Derwent and Wye valleys. The house is set in the expansive 105 acre Chatsworth Garden. Chatsworth has several times been selected as the UK’s favourite country house. 
 
Events coordinator at Chatsworth, Amy Law, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting the Run or Dye event in the park at Chatsworth on 10 October. It will be an exciting addition to our full calendar of events this year and the route through the estate will be a wonderful kaleidoscope of colour!”
 
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.
