Phoenix Park turns rainbow as thousands join colour run
Thousands of people turned all shades of the rainbow when they took part in the Colour Dash in Dublin's Phoenix Park this morning.
Some 3,000 people braved the bad weather to run, walk or jog the five kilometre route in aid of the Irish Cancer Society.
A variety of colours of powder paint representing different cancers was thrown at participants throughout the run, creating a kaleidoscope of colour.
Participants began the route wearing a white t-shirt but by the end the t-shirt had transformed into a colourful work of art.
This is the second year the event has taken place in Dublin.
Some 2,600 people have signed up for the three colour dashes so far, with Limerick and Cork to host the event later this year.
Colour Dash Limerick will take place on August 24th in the University of Limerick and Colour Dash Cork will take place on September 6th in Ballincollig Park.
