Do I have to run, or can I walk (or roll)? You do not need to run. There is no time limit on the length of time it takes you to finish. Participants in wheelchairs and or pushing strollers are welcome, however, any damage due to the colored powder are at the participants own risk.
What is the distance of the color run/walk? The route is approximately 1.25 miles.
Is the race timed? No. This race is for fun and will not be timed.
What should I wear? If you wish to show off your colors, light colored clothing will show it best. Clothing should be appropriate for the weather and expect that you will get splashed with color powder.
Will the color powder stain my clothes? The color powder washes out of most clothing. However, it can stain some materials. 100% cotton clothing is recommended and typical machine washing with stain remover, removes the stains. We recommend removing excess powder from clothing before washing and/or applying water. We suggest that participants bring a towel to place in the car as to not shake color powder in the interior of the car.
Does Color Powder Stain Skin or Hair? Just as with clothing we recommend shaking off all excess powder before exposing to water. Normal soap and water should remove color powder from skin and hair. Some color does tend to linger for a few days especially on blonde hair. If you are worried about staining, we recommend applying a moisturizer to skin and coating your hair with a small amount of coconut or olive oil before the event.
Is Color Powder Safe? Safety is our main priority! Our colors are made with high quality cornstarch, food dyes and baking soda. All materials are 100% FD&C and/or D&C approved. Our color powder contains natural fire-retardant materials that dramatically reduce fire risk. However, cornstarch in a dust state can be flammable under certain conditions. Out of an abundance of caution do not use near open flame, smoking materials or other ignition sources. If you would like a copy of the Safety Data Sheets please contact us at 888-252-6567 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Does Color Powder Contain Gluten or other common allergens? Our color powder is gluten free and does not contain dairy, nuts, wheat, soy or other common allergens. Although it is made from all food safe ingredients, it is not created in a food safe facility and is not intended for human consumption.
Is Color Powder harmful if you inhale it? Although all the materials are food grade, we do not recommend inhaling large quantities of color powder. It should always be used in well ventilated outdoor space and when throwing at participants you should aim for the chest area.
Anyone who has asthma, is allergic to any of the ingredients or has any respiratory issues should exercise caution when participating in color powder events.
