WHAT IS THE COLOR MADE OF?  The magical color powder we use is custom manufactured and produced right here in the United States. It is made from food-grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that has been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It is non-toxic, is 100% safe and also biodegradable. As with any substance, you will want to keep it out of your eyes and lungs. If you are overly sensitive, you may want to wear glasses or goggles for your eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for your mouth. (This is especially recommended for our younger runners/walkers). We suggest you bring towels to clean off after the race before you get in your car! 

CAN I WEAR A COSTUME?  Absolutely! Feel free to dress up and show your school spirit! 

WEATHER POLICY: The 5K will take place rain or shine. If cancellation of the event is warranted due to dangerous weather conditions, announcements will be made on race day at the race site. The event will not be cancelled in advance.
