The Race Route and Short Cut:  All racers will start together.  Those who wish to take the 2.6K shortcut should look for signs and volunteers at Ravalli & Fowler to ensure you continue toward the remaining color stations.

Color Tips

Wear your race t-shirt or other white shirt. Color should wash out of clothes but is not guaranteed so wear clothing you can get color on!  
The powder is an FDA approved, non-toxic, dyed cornstarch. However, sunglasses are recommended for eye protection as well as neck scarves to keep from breathing in too much powder.  A blanket works great to cover young children in strollers. The powder can be a mild irritant for those with medical issues, so we recommend those with asthma/breathing issues talk to their doctor, not be in the middle of the color celebration and go around color stations and let volunteers at stations know to keep the color to a minimum.  A clean up station will be provided at the finish, but we suggest having towels for your car seats after the run to protect your seats
