The color is food-grade quality cornstarch that is biodegradable, non-toxic and 100% safe. Volunteers will be located at color stations with bulk buckets of color. Each color station will feature a new color. As runners pass, the volunteers will toss the color. If you are pregnant, or experience asthma, consulting your doctor before running is strongly encouraged. Some people will wear a bandana over their face to inhibit any additional dust in their face. There are paths that allow you to avoid color if you wish.

Spectators are able to watch participants run at start and finish lines. Spectators may not enter the course or color station areas.
