Color Run Tips and Tricks

- Wear a white shirt! If you purchased one through us, it will be at the event. If not, wear a white shirt so that the colors show! 
- Wear sunglasses to keep the powder out of your eyes! Consider a hat if you would like it out of your hair. 
- Bring a small sandwich bag for your phone. 
- Bring a towel and baby wipes! Use the baby wipes to wipe off your skin, and sit on the towel on your drive home to protect the seats of your car. 


Color Run FAQs answered by

What do they use in Color Runs?

The colored powder is non-toxic, free of heavy metals and all certified. It is a combination of baking soda, corn starch and FD&C (food safe) dyes.

Does Color Run powder wash out?

Yes, generally color run powder washes out of clothes and they will come back to their original state. However not all color powders are the same, certain brands, and typically darker colored powders, are more likely to stain. After you remove as much color powder as you can, rinse your clothes in cold water before a normal washing cycle. If the clothes are still colorful after the washing, then try washing it one more time, and that should do the trick. 

What if I want the colors to stay in my shirt?

Soak your shirt in vinegar before washing it- that should set the colors! 

Does the Color Run powder stain your hair?

No, the color run powder won't stain your hair. With some hair types, the color run powder might be a little more difficult to be removed (like blond hair), however with enough washes, the color run powder will eventually all go. Here's a few tips for removing color run powder from your hair:Consider wearing a head cover, bandanna or hat during the color run. You can also use some leave-in conditioner before the event, especially for bleached or highlighted hair.After the event, make sure you dust off all the colored powder before jumping in the shower.Wash your hair as usual, repeat if necessary.

Does Color Run powder ruin your shoes?

The color powder should wash out mostly after the event and shouldn't ruin your shoes. However, like anything colorful, it may cause staining depending on how much time it has had to set, so the sooner you wash it the better! Give your shoes a good scrub with warm soapy water and they should come out fine. If however, you are still afraid that the color powder may stain or ruin your shoes, it's recommended to wear items that you don't mind getting dirty!

Are Color Runs safe for your lungs?

Color powder used in color fun runs is typically made from 100% natural and edible ingredients, although consuming it is not advised. If you're worried about its effects on your lungs, rest assured that it's generally safe. However, like any powder, it's best to avoid contact with your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent discomfort. To ensure added safety, consider wearing protective eyewear, a bandanna, or a dust mask. You can also hold your breath or breathe through your nose, which has natural filters. While the powder might cause slight coughing if inhaled, especially for those with respiratory conditions like asthma, it's generally harmless. Volunteers are instructed to apply the powder below the waist, and some events even offer colorful glasses for extra fun.
