Race Bags & Metals
At the of the end of the race every participant will receive a race bag and a metal of participation. Use the bags to collect the goodies from local vendors at the end of the event.
Race day traffic and parking at SPI will be crazy, so be smart and plan to check in early! We will follow up with parking and shuttle services in an email prior to the event
Runners and Walkers
We will release runners in waves every 3-5 minutes. This is not a timed run so enjoy the color zones and the run. Take your time in our color zones but please don’t stop because this will cause congestion.
Do not throw color powder directly on people’s faces. Aim below the shoulders.
Make sure you hold on to you bib number and that it is visible on the front of your shirt. This is how you will get past security at the start. You can wear your run T-shirt or a plain white one. Can I dress up in costume? We encourage you to be as creative as possible!
No alcohol or drugs are allowed at the event.
If you are running with a stroller, please start at the back of the pack.
Though the color will eventually wash out of just about everything, you may not want to bring your expensive equipment, clothing, or running shoes...
Watch over and direct your small children that are running with you in the race.
Be courteous and respectful to all who are participating in the event including volunteers and race officials.
Everyone can wear safety/sun glasses, a bandana, or a dust mask. We especially encourage it if you have any respiratory problems such as asthma.
End Of Race Party
All visitors can participate in the post run color throws that will occur every 15 minutes until we count down to the end of the race. We have the brightest colors out there and they all are environmentally safe and bio degradable. Color packs will be available for purchase for family and friends who want to shower you with color powder after the race.
Stay for a while and check out the local fitness vendors, tour Sea Turtle Inc, or have a drink at Clayton’s Beach Bar. We will also be setting up beach volleyball games.
Snap a photo in our post event photo area.
Cleaning Station: We will have air blower stations set up to dust you off before the ride home.
A good solid shower will get rid of most if not all of the color powder. Can’t wait to see you all next Year!
