What is the color made from?
The magical color powder we use is custom manufactured and produced in the United States.  It is made from food grade quality cornstarch and is 100% non-toxic and 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).

Is the race timed?
No, the race and its participants do not get timed.  Run, skip, or walk!  5KColorBlast is about having a good time for a great cause.

Will the color stain my clothes, shoes, or makeup?
If you want a lot of color to hit your free t-shirt, plan to run or walk closer to the color throwers.  If you want only a little bit of color, run or walk in the farthest lane from the throwers.  The color does wash out after the event.  As with any stain, the sooner you wash it the better.  We suggest wearing items that you wouldn't mind getting the color on.

Will the color get in my car?
Bring a towel or some plastic bags along, and you’ll be just fine.  However, if you do get some in your vehicle, it can be dusted away or vacuumed easily.
