Is the Millinocket Independence Color Run 5K Timed? 
Our event is all about fun and an untimed event. For anyone who wants a finish time, we suggest self-timing.

Is it safe to bring cameras and phones to the color run?
To be totally safe, we recommend covering cameras/phones with a protective dust wrap.  The COLOR RUN is NOT liable for any damages that might be done to your phone or camera. 

Will running through the color zones affect my vision or breathing?
Our color powders is all certified non-toxic and free of any heavy metals. Our bright colors are a combination of cornstarch, baking soda, and FD&C (food-safe) dyes. Some color runners opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandanna or dust mask for their mouths.  Our stationed color throwers make sure to aim low as you pass by. 

Will the color ruin my clothes or running shoes?
The color mostly washes out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. Its best to wear items that you wouldn't mind getting colorful.

Can I run with my DOG/CAT/TURTLE? 
For the safety of our runners and animal friends, we do not allow animals. 

Can Children Participate?
If your child can cover about 3 miles of the course (while running , jogging, walking, or strolling), they can absolutely participate!

Why is there a small processing fee on top of the run entry fee?
Because RunSignUp lets us use this really amazing system and its how they get paid, not to mention THANKS for registering in advance, it really helps us plan!
