At each 1/4 mile mark, Color Runners are doused from head to toe in a different colored powder.  

Some Color Runners opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths. Our Color Throwers make sure to aim low as you pass by. The color mostly washes out of your clothes after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. It’s best to wear items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful.
