Those participating on bicycles will start the event. Then in 5 minutes intervals the next groups will start. Wheelchair participants may push themselves or be pushed by a partner. Powerchairs are allowed but please keep in mind they will get dirty. Participants on foot may push their small children in a stroller. Participants 5 years and younger may participate free of charge. Sorry, pets are not permitted to participate.
A waiver will need to be signed prior to participation and will be available at registration. Each participant will receive a swag bag at check in. Participants must come ready to get colorfully dirty and MUST wear a white t-shirt. Periodically throughout the course volunteers will throw a different color of powder. The color is 100% safe but will stain your clothes. Your skin may become stained but the color can be removed safely with a baby wipe or soap and water. This is not a timed event so feel free to take all the time you need. There will be post-event festivities, food, and live music. Family members of participants are more than welcome to join in on the fun!
Sorry but we cannot issue refunds. If you are unable to participate after registering come on by and pick up your t-shirt and swag bag and maybe stay to cheer on the other athletes and enjoy the post-event festivities.
