What is the colour stuff made from?

It is made from food grade cornstarch so it is safe and natural. All the powder is non-toxic, and conforms to the European Standard (EN71-3). It may cause slight skin, eye or mouth irritation for those with sensitive skin. Many participants bring or buy our bandanas to help keep inhalation of the color to a minimum.

Can I walk the course?

Yes. Many people walk the 5km course in about an hour. We do ask that you head to the back of the start line so the fast runners can lead the pack.

What is your refund policy?

If an event is cancelled without a reschedule, refunds will be issued.

Full refunds will also be issued in the case that the event cannot proceed due to a change in COVID-19 restrictions.

In all other cases, we have a no refund or transfer policy, which is agreed upon when registering.

Will the colour ruin my clothes?
Although it will probably wash out fairly well, we’re still going to say yes. It’s better safe than sorry. Wear clothes that you don’t mind getting colored in. We recommend wearing an awesome white shirt to show the color at its most vibrant!
Can I register a child in the event?

Children 5 and under are free to enter the event, but they will need to be registered online through our site. To register a child select the “Individual” registration then after the birth date is entered choose the “Child under 5” option. For insurance purposes and when counting numbers of waters, porta-loos, in-kind donations and other event related items, the number of children must also be considered. This is why all children MUST be registered. Children are free to enter the event, but will not receive an event headband.
