All are welcome!

Let us color you while you run, walk, or ride in a stroller, anyone can participate!

What is it? This is perhaps the most fun you will ever have. You start the event clean and tidy (feel free to wear as much white as you would like) as you pass through the color zones you will be splashed with different color powder at each station. When you finish the walk/run you will be covered in color and enjoy a festival of fun at the finish line.

Is it safe? Yes the color powder is food safe and 100% biodegradable. It SHOULD wash out of clothing, your skin and hair and even sneakers in the washing machine. We recommend covering any electronics or areas/items that can not be washed.

Start and Finish: Swanton Elementary School (parking at either building and meet in the area between the schools

Course: A safe flat 2 mile course around the school and rail trail areas
