WHAT TIME DO I NEED TO BE ON SITE FOR THE RUN?
We ask that you be on site no later than 8:00am to be sure to give yourself plenty of time to park and get to the start line prior to the race starting.
HOW DO I GET THE MOST COLORFUL?
There are some ways to maximize your colorfulness! Wear white or very light colors to have the colors show up. If you want to bring misters (spray bottles) to get a little wet, this will help you have the color stick. We plan to have misting options available to you on Race Day as well (weather permitting).
To preserve the color on your race day shirt: Spray your colorful shirt after the race with vinegar, let dry completely and then your colorful shirt should stay colorful for a long time to come!
Just WHAT is this color made of?
The color powder is a cornstarch based powder, it is non toxic and completely safe to get in your eyes, ears, nose, mouth and everywhere else. IT'S COMPLETELY SAFE!
Tips about the color:
You WILL get colorful everywhere! We recommend sunglasses to keep it out of your eyes! Even getting the color everywhere, we PROMISE it does wash off of you! The Team knows from first hand experience! If we were all washable after last year, we can promise you will be too! ( a few places may take a bit to come completely clean)
What if I want to have the color OFF a bit before I leave?
We will have leaf blowers available at the finish line if you’d like to clean yourself off. We also HIGHLY recommend covering the inside of your car with trash bags OR towels so that the interior of your car does not become colorful!
