Do I need to be some sweet ole’ runner to do this?
Oh my goodness, NO. There are plenty of other great 5ks out there to test speed and performance. The color run is all about a color crazy day with friends and family. You can run, walk, crawl, or cartwheel if you wish!
What is included with my registration?
Register by March 1st and you will receive an official RPHS Color Run T-shirt
Can children participate?
On one condition, if you are prepared to be one of the hippest moms/dads on the planet! If they can cover (running, jogging, walking, or strolling) the three miles of The Color Run course, they can absolutely participate in The Color Run!
Can I run with my dog/cat/turtle?
For the safety of our runners and animal friends, we do not allow animals at any of our races
How do I get my free t-shirt?
We will have a check-in table at the event where you can check in and pick up your shirt!
Can someone else pick up my t-shirt for me?
You bet! As long as you send them with a printed or electronic copy of your confirmation email with the QR code on it!
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.
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.
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 Color Run is not liable for any damage that might be done to your camera!
Is The Color Run timed?
The Color Run 5k is not a timed event. Runners tend to take their sweet time out there and we realized no one really cares about their speed We suggest self-timing for anyone desiring a finish time.
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. If for some reason you can’t make it to race day, at least come to the Check-In Party, pick up your gear, and say hi to us!
What happens if there is bad weather?
A little rain won’t stop the color run 5k! It even makes the color brighter!
What if I have a super sweet question that isn’t answered here?
