Bringing a spectacular burst of Run or Dye colour to Kent, the event saw runners and walkers of all ages (from 2 to 72 years old) and abilities enjoy the most colourful event the Estate has ever seen. Run Or Dye saw participants continue to fundraise thousands for the Great Ormond Street KISS IT BETTER appeal, with the total over £75,000.

Taking place at Penshurst Place, participants were showered with safe, eco-friendly, plant-based cornstarch rainbow dust every kilometre, as well as a waterfall of foam and bubbles for the first time ever. There was a 5k, 3.5k and a new 1k loop for children aged 6 and under.
