How is the color administered along the course?
You will see smiling faces along the course whose main goal is to douse you in colorful powder to ensure that you look like you ran through a beautiful rainbow by the time you cross the finish line.

Will the color ruin clothes or running shoes?
The color does mostly wash out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful and making sure to wash your color run items separate from your other laundry. 

Do you have a cleaning station at the end of the event?
We have industrial fans to help blow of the colored powder. With a good dusting off, you aren’t 100% clean, but you are good for the drive home. It is actually pretty fun to see people still colorful around town after the event. It is like a badge of honor!

How does the color affect the inside of cars?
Our advice to you: bring some towels for the insides of the cars, or a change of clothes just in case.

Are cameras and phones safe to have in the color zones?
We recommend covering cameras/phones with a protective dust wrap. Those colorful powder particles are sneaky, and Pinehurst Resort is not liable for any damage that might be done to your camera!

Are there refunds?
If an event is held as advertised, we cannot issue refunds. The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it impossible. Just make sure you are good to go before signing up!

Can I transfer my registration to another person? 
Sure!  You can transfer your registration at https://runsignup.com/Race/NC/Pinehurst/PinehurstColorRun5K

What if I am pregnant?
It’s totally up to what you and your doctor decide. The powder is all certified non-toxic.  We recommend wearing sunglasses or goggles, and a bandana over your mouth and nose in the color zones just for extra protection.

What happens if there is bad weather?
This is a rain or shine event. However, in the event of inclement weather the event will be delayed in hopes of the weather passing.

What is the race route?
The race will begin in front of the iconic Carolina Hotel, take guests throughout the Village, and it will end right where the race began.
