“Our core message is that love changes the world, and the color we use at our runs is a powerful symbol of that,” said Viral Events founder and CEO Jake Ackerman. “We are delighted to be in partnership with Castle Triathlon Series. Their organization has produced some of the most organized and successful triathlon events around.”
Brian Adcock is the founder of Castle Triathlon Series ad he says, “Giving people a reason to get out get fit and live life to its fullest has always been our mission. I never imagined we’d expand our reach by throwing colored powder at them – but when we had the chance to work with Run or Dye we decided to see where it would lead and the reception has been fantastic. For us to share this unique experience and bring so many people to the world’s most colourful 5K throughout Ireland and the UK is brilliant. Our goal is to make these events an annual tradition.”
Run or Dye draws its inspiration from the ancient Hindu festival of Holi, also known as the “Festival of Colours.” During the Holi Festival, people gather, sing, dance, play, chase and colour one another with powder to celebrate the triumph of good over bad, bridge social gaps and renew sweet relationships. In the same fashion the Give Love World Tour aims to encourage its participants to celebrate life, friendship, fitness and fun in full colour.
