Is the race hard?
No, that’s no fun! Hard races aren't fun. Hard races are hard! We are a fun race with lots of color
vibes, and we have lots of fun not racing! Color Vibe is the best way to be crazy with friends,
family, or imaginary people. You won’t be timed, so there is no pressure to hurry and get ‘er
done. Come bask in the colorful world we have created for you!
What is the color made of?
The magical color powder we use is custom manufactured and produced in the United States. It
is made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that has
been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. It is non-toxic, is 100% safe, and also
biodegradable. As with any substance, you will want to keep it out of your eyes and lungs. If you
are overly sensitive, you may want to wear glasses or goggles for your eyes and use a bandana
or dust mask for your mouth. (This is especially recommended for our younger runners/walkers)
Can I take pictures?
Of course! For most events we’ll also have our Color Vibe professional
photography team covering all of the Color Vibe madness! If you do bring
your camera, phone, pager, Walkman, or 8-track, we recommend keeping it
in a plastic bag to keep the dust out!
If you are a photographer that would like to come and
photograph our event, we will grant you permission with the understanding
that any photographs you take may be used and edited by Color Vibe for
marketing and promotional purposes with or without your written consent.
By photographing our event you acknowledge and agree to this condition.
Are kids allowed?
Yes, kids love to get colored just as much as the rest of us. All kids must be registered
in order to participate.
Can my family watch?
Most definitely they can come be a part of the craziest color day of your
life! Just be sure to give them a big hug at the finish line for coming
to support you! :)
Can I wear costumes?
Gosh Yes! We love costumes! The whiter the better!
You wanna do the Color Vibe?
I wanna do a 5k run and get color blasted! The Color Vibe is the best
5k run where you'll get covered with vibrantly awesome colors and have
a blast as you get color thrown all over you! So keep it cool and get
ready to rock it out!
What time does the race begin?
Our races begin at 10:30 AM, and then we'll release waives every 5 minutes or so.
We recommend getting there 45-60 minutes early so you have plenty of time to park and stretch!
The event usually concludes between 1pm-2pm.
Can I Walk?
Walking is totally acceptable here at the Color Vibe. You will be one
of many who will be walking. We don't time the race and it is non-competitive,
so you won't feel any pressure.
Can I purchase more items?
There will be additional items for purchase at the event so you can show
the world how much fun you had!
How do I volunteer?
We'd love to have you come and help as a volunteer. Please select the
event in your area, and then click on the volunteer link in the menu on
the left hand side to register as a volunteer. Volunteers typically throw
color on the participants, and/or help with registration, and clean up.
Who does it benefit?
The Color Vibe is a for-profit event. We partner with local charities
and non-profit organizations in each of the cities we hold our events
which will receive a portion of the proceeds. The amount is based on the
size of the event and the involvement of the charity.
You can visit each event location to learn more
about the organization we are working with in your local area. Our goal
is to provide donation opportunities, generate awareness of the charity
in the community, and maintain strong relationships with our charity partners.
What's the price and how do I register?
The registration price for the Color Vibe 5K varies based on each location
and how soon you register for the event. The sooner you register
the cheaper the cost.
What do I get for registering?
Besides getting the most colorful experience of your life in this awesome
5k, you’ll also receive a super cool Color Vibe shirt.
Can I refund my registration?
No. Unfortunately it’s impossible for us to offer refunds. You can still pick up your packet and
race goodies, or you can transfer your registration to someone else up to 3 week prior to the

No way! Everyone is welcome to come have tons of colorful fun at Color
Vibe! We do recommend that your kids are properly protected with sunglasses,
and for toddlers and infants, maybe even something to cover their mouth.

to the color throwers. If you want only a little bit of color, run or
walk in the farthest lane from the throwers.The color does mostly wash
out after the event, but some of it can stain. As with anything, the sooner
