2,000 participants took part in Liverpool's Run or Dye colourful 5km at Aintree Racecourse

ON Saturday, 6 June 2015, 2,000 runners took part in the world's most colourful 5km, running, walking and dancing, filling the legendary Aintree Racecourse with colour. Bringing the spectacular explosion of Run or Dye colour to the Racecourse, the event saw runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to enjoy the most colourful event Liverpool has ever seen.

Running, walking and even dancing their way around the course at Aintree, participants were showered with eco-friendly, plant-based cornstarch dye in a rainbow of colours. Runners and their supporters celebrated their achievement with the world's most colourful party, the famous Dye Festival with DJ Sam making sure the celebrations kept going. Run or Dye will take place at 13 more events throughout the year across the UK so fans have plenty of opportunity to get involved and take part in an event.

Help for Heroes is the official national charity partner and wounded servicemen, women and veterans ran alongside members of the public taking part supporting the charity. Volunteers from local charity partner, Liverpool Pride covered the runners from head to toe with dye throughout the course as families, friends and colleagues ran and walked together.

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.
