FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

  •  How does The 5k Color Blast work?
    • You’ll start out nice and clean, and throughout the 5k course you’ll be BLASTED with all the colors of the rainbow! When you cross the finish line, you will be covered head to toe in color and your smile will be ear to ear.

 

  • What if I don’t want too much color?
    • There will be specific color stations along the course, so if being bombarded with colors isn’t your thing, move to the center of the crowd to avoid a big blast of color.

 

  • What is the “color” in The 5k Color Blast?
    • It is non-toxic, biodegradable, colored cornstarch. You may want to consider wearing sunglasses to cover your eyes, and perhaps a bandana to keep the color out of your mouth and nose. It washes off hair & skin with soap and water, and will fade from clothing after a while, with repeated washing.

 

  • What do I receive with my registration?
    • You'll receive a t-shirt (Youth and Adult sizes), awesome finisher medal, hair tie, tattoo, car decal, and entry to the post-race dance party with music, entertainment, food, great vendors and a fun atmosphere. 1 color pack will be given to each runner in your goodie bag for fun color throws at the finish!

 

  • Does The 5k Color Blast support a charity?
    • We partner with multiple local charities including OneBlood. If you would like more information on our charity efforts, please email us!

 

  • What should I wear?
    • For the full effect, we suggest that you wear WHITE, with athletic shoes, and anything else that meets your colorful desires!

 

  • Can I wear a costume?
    • Please do! Costumes are great! 

 

  • Will the color stain my clothes, hair, or skin?
    • The color will not stain your skin or hair. The color should wash out of your clothes for the most part, but the sooner you wash it, the better!  

 

  • How do I get clean?
    • There will be dusting stations at the finish line. You won’t be 100% squeaky clean, but you’ll be dusted off enough to get in a car. Bring a towel for your ride home, just in case.

    • We suggest you wear your color all day! How many chances do you get to be a human rainbow?

 

  • How do I keep the color in my shirt?
    • Spray your shirt with vinegar after the race and iron it before washing. This should help the color stick, but it is not guaranteed.

 

  • What time will the park and check in open?
    • The entry gates will open to runners 1.5 hours before start time.

 

  • What is the event route?
    • We will share the route map as soon as it is available. Expect beautiful trails and nature, and of course - rainbows!

 

  • Is this event timed?
    • This is a fun run/walk and it is NOT timed, at all. Take your time strolling  the course, or be the first to show up at the finish line showered in color. There will be a medal and lots of color FUN waiting for you at the finish line!

 

  • Can I get a refund?
    • In the event of participant cancellation, we are unable to offer refunds. If you feel you might need to cancel, we suggest you purchase registration Insurance at checkout.

 

  • Can I bring a pet?
    • Because of the nature of the event, it is not advisable to bring along pets.

       

  • What if there is bad weather?
    • Check The 5k Color Blast Facebook and this site for updates.
