One of the organisers, Krishna Mistry,Ā said: “Colour runs are a huge celebration in the Hindu faith and Indian culture, however, this one is unique in that we’re promoting the environment.

“Cuerden Valley Park grows wildflower meadows to keep the nature reserve alive for the animals that reside there. During the colour run participants will throw community-made seed bombs to promote growth.

“Therefore – in addition to the eco-friendly colour that will be thrown – our runners will also have the opportunity to enhance nature, which is key to ourĀ HoliĀ colour run.


“HoliĀ itself is a prominent Hindu festival that welcomes spring and embodies good things to come our way, and so it works hand-in-hand with the point of this event.”
