The course is on paved roads going through some of the unpaved Great Western trail and a loop around the Severance High School Parking lot with multiple color stations along the way out and those same stations on the way back. There will also be an aid station at the turnaround with a special treat and water awaiting you. Volunteers will be located throughout the course to guide you, cross any major intersection, throw color at you, so be sure to High Five them and tell them “Thanks”. Events like this would not exist without our volunteers. The course will close at 1:30pm and the Easter Egg Hunt (FREE EVENT), hosted by Calvary Severance Church, will begin promptly at 2pm.

*****While our color powder is safe for clothing, we do recommend not wearing your favorite outfit just in case!

Cleaning and Usage
DOES YOUR COLOR POWDER CLEAN EASILY?
Our color powder uses all natural dyes that clean easily off most surfaces. Cleaning is as easy as brushing or blowing off a majority of the color powder, then a little soap and water will take care of the rest.
While our color powder is made to be washable, the natural dyes do have the potential to stain certain materials or surfaces. Porous materials, such as vinyl, are more prone to staining. We recommend testing a small, hidden area when using color powder products if there are concerns.
HOW DO I CLEAN POWDER OFF MY SKIN OR HAIR?
Cleaning off your skin and hair is similar to dusting off dry dirt. Most of it can be removed by shaking and dusting yourself off. The remaining will go away with a bath or shower.
Please note that fair skin and hair may be left with a slight tint for a day or two if heavily covered and left on for a long period of time. This will go away, of course, but maybe don’t participate if you have engagement photos the next day ; )
HOW DO I CLEAN POWDER OFF MY CLOTHES AND MATERIALS?
Most clothing can be washed as normal without staining. If staining occurs on white clothing, it can be cleaned with laundry whitener.
Porous surfaces such as leather, vinyl, suede, or foam products can be the most difficult to clean. Please do not wear valuable clothes or shoes to color powder events. Use plastic, towels, or drop cloths to cover interior car seats, golf cart seats, or anything else that you would normally protect from dirt or mud.
