What is a Color-A-Thon?
As you run/walk/dance through the course, you will get showered in safe, eco-friendly, plant-based powdered dye at every zone…turning you into a moving target of fun!
Just when you thought you couldn’t possibly be more colorful, you’ll cross the finish line and find yourself in the middle of a Color Blast at our Finish Line! You’ll jam out with our awesome emcees as they count down to the moment when YOU get to Tie-Dye the Sky and open your color packets to share your blast of color with your friends, family, and everyone else around you. The result is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that many people tell us is the most fun they’ve ever had exercising.
What do I wear?
Wear the running gear that students earned as well as tennis shoes, goggles or sunglasses to protect eyes, sunscreen and bug spray if needed. bring a towel and plastic bag to put colored items in. Put cell phones, keys etc. in a plastic bag so they do not get colored.

What is the color blast dust made of? Is it safe?
We will rock your world with color but never take your health for granted!! Our Color Blast Dust is safe, non-toxic and completely washable!
Ingredients: Corn starch and FD&C and/or D&C colors. Color safety information: Approved for use in foods, cosmetics and/or drugs. These products are not considered hazardous, 29 CFR 1910-1200.
If you or your child have asthma or allergies, we suggest that you limit exposure to the color dust. It is a fine dust that could potentially aggravate current health conditions.
Will my clothes ever be the same?
The Dye we use is completely safe and will wash out of your clothes–but we don’t do your laundry so results may vary depending on detergent, temperature, etc. For this reason we recommend you wear stuff that you don’t mind getting a little colorful.
Will the dye wash out of my hair?
The dye is made of colored cornstarch and is designed to be 100% washable. If you have light-colored hair, or if it’s expected to be rainy or a particularly humid day when you participate in Run or Dye, we suggest adding some leave-in conditioner.
