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.
Will running through the color stations affect my vision or breathing?
The color powders is all certified non-toxic. The bright colors are a combination of cornstarch 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.
