What is that stuff?

Is it dangerous for my sensitive areas?

A little color (powder) never hurt anyone! Feel free to adorn yourself however you see fit to protect yourself – glasses, goggles, clothing, shoes, caps, bandanas, or whatever you need to feel ready to rock and roll.

Where does the color come from?

It’s not rocket science. You’ll be blasted with none other than non-toxic, colored cornstarch. You start the race clean as can be, and as you run, you’ll be coated with color.

Is it dangerous for my health?

Since when has exercise and fun ever been bad for your health?

In all seriousness, if you suffer from asthma or you have other health issues related to your lungs, please take any necessary precautions. When in doubt, contact your physician.

Does it stain?

Nope. It is intended to wash out with a little bit of effort and some good soap. Generally it helps to brush off the dry powder first, then attack the sweaty powder with cold water and the hygiene product of your choice. You may need to wash your hair or clothes several times before all the color is out, but your multi-hued ‘do isn’t permanent.

That said, many people wear one use clothing and use a vinegar spray to “lock in” the color

The best artist’s canvas is white. Start with a blank slate and watch your ensemble go from dull to dazzling!
