Does the color chalk wash out?
The color mostly washes out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. It’s best to wear items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful. We suggest washing items you wore to The Color Run separately from your other laundry
What color are the race shirts?
Race shirts are white so they'll show the full glory of the color run. But of course you can wear any white t-shirt you're willing to get chalk on.
Can I bring my dog?
For the safety of our runners and animal friends, there are no animals allowed.
Are there weather contingencies?
The color run will happen rain or shine. If there's dangerous weather (like lightning), the run may be postponed or canceled.
Photographers Please Note:
Due to the nature of color run powder, it is not advised that you shoot this event without safety precautions. Here's a link to some safety tips or you can always google.
