Yes, it is! You can easily dust it off first and then wash it afterwards. We do not recommend washing it right away – this will make the color powder stick longer! Watch this video to learn more about this
The color powder we use is food grade powder and is 100% natural and safe. As with any substance, it is best to keep it away from your eyes. However, if you are asthmatic or have trouble breathing in any way, it would be good to consult with your doctor with regard to powder or any strenuous physical activity.
Yes, we do! Your bib also includes a baggage stub that you can use to leave your stuff at our baggage counters. We will not be liable for losses and damages in your personal belongings.
Yes! We encourage everyone to use the race kit items provided. We designed the kits specifically for the run – singlets, sunglasses, drawstring bags, and all! Most importantly, bring and wear your race bib. You will be unable to run the race route and to claim the finisher’s items without it. Also, wear sunblock, eat right, and drink lots of water.
No, our participants can enjoy the run without worrying about their time. We suggest self-timing for those who have a desired finish time.
CM events have three segments.
- Part 1: Assembly – Runners gather at the CM Village. Drop your bags at our baggage counter, visit the booths and find a spot for warm-up.
- Part 2: Gun Start and Run – Get ready to run at the starting line. We will have a countdown until gun start. Be prepared to get wet. A fire truck is situated a few meters from the starting line and will spray water on all of the participants. This will make the colors stick to you. Throughout the route, you can enjoy the color stations and re-hydrate at the hydration stations.
- Part 3: Color Festival – The program continues once everyone settles back to the activity area. Runners claim their finisher’s medal, color packet, and hydration freebies. We will signal a countdown for everyone to throw color powder up in the air. Everyone then parties and dances to the latest beats played by our DJ.
