Runners wore multi-coloured dreamcoats when they took part in an unusual fun run at Castle Howard.

They began with normal running kit or standard fancy dress costumes

Throughout the five kilometre route, they were showered with powdered plant-based dye of every colour under the rainbow until they were totally covered and a completely different sight from when they began.

The runners thoroughly enjoyed the chance to be messy in a colourful outdoor activity.

The Run or Dye event was one of a series organised around the country which combine fun, colour and exercise.
