      Q: What are you using to Color Me with? Is the color harmful?? Will the color ruin my clothes or my car?

      A: The color powder is 100% biodegradable and shouldn’t harm you. We do provide sunglasses for all registered runners .You may also choose to bring a bandana or face mask if you are concerned about ingesting the color.

      We can’t promise you that you might not have some color stains, but we are told that the color washes out of clothing and hair rather easily. We have even heard that the following method works prior to the run to preserve your clothes; spray your clothes with vinegar, iron, and then wash.

      For your car we suggest that you bring a towel or plastic bag to cover your car seat with after the run to keep any of the left over color from lingering.
