COLOR RUN FAQ's

Do I need to be a runner to do this?
Of course NOT. The Sun Fun Color Run event is all about a color crazy day with friends and family. You can run, walk, crawl, or cartwheel if you wish!

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. Every color station has a different color theme. 

Is The Color Run safe?
The health and safety of our participants and our employees has always been at the forefront of our minds and actions. Thorough testing has been conducted to ensure the safety of our materials and their application. We are committed to staging safe and secure events.

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 separately from your other laundry. 

How does the color affect the inside of cars?
Most people bring some towels for the insides of their cars, or a change of clothes just in case.

Do the Color Zones affect runner vision? Or breathing?
The color powder used is all certified non-toxic and free of any heavy metals. Our bright colors are a combination of cornstarch and dyes. As with any substance, you want to keep it out of your eyes and our color throwers make sure to aim low as you pass by. Some Color Runners opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.

Are cameras and phones safe to have in the color zones?
To be totally safe we always recommend covering cameras/phones with a protective dust wrap. Those colorful powder particles are sneaky and the City of Sequim is not liable for any damage that might be done to your camera!

Is The Color Run timed?
The 5K is timed the 1K is not timed. 

What happens if there is bad weather?
A little rain (or snow) won’t stop our Sun Fun Color Run! It even makes the color brighter! 

Are Strollers allowed?
Yes strollers are allowed in the event. Only participants who are registered will receive the swag and medal. 

Are animals allowed in the event?
No. Due to the safety of all of our participants we ask that you leave your animal friends at home for this event. 

What if I don't want any color on me? We understand that some people prefer to not receive as much colored powder on themselves. While we cannot guarantee that you won't get any color on yourself, if you prefer to be doused with minimal colored powder, please stay to the side of the color stations.
