FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is the run hard?
No, that’s no fun! This is a fun run with lots of color, and lots of fun, not racing! This run is the best way to be crazy with friends, and family. You won’t be timed, so there is no pressure to hurry and get ‘er done. There will be two courses. One 1 mile loop and one 2.5 mile loop. Both courses start and stop at the same place.
Can I Walk?
Yes! 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.
What time does the run begin?
The run will begin at 10:30 AM. We recommend getting there 45-60 minutes early so you have plenty of time to park and warm up!
Are kids allowed?
Yes! All kids must be registered in order to participate. We do recommend that your kids are properly protected with sunglasses, and for toddlers and infants, maybe even something to cover their mouth.
Can I run with my dog?
No. Dogs, cats, llamas and other pets are not allowed at The Carson Color Fest.
How do I volunteer?
We'd love to have you come and help as a volunteer. Volunteers typically throw color on the participants, and/or help with registration, and clean up. Please contact the event coordinator at 719-526-2742, if you would like to volunteer.
What is the color made of?
The color powder we use is custom manufactured and produced right here in the United States. It is made from food grade quality cornstarch. 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.
What should I wear? Will the color stain my clothes, shoes, or makeup?
You can wear whatever you want but we suggest white clothing because it shows up the color the best! The color does mostly wash out after the event, but some of it can stain. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn't mind getting the color on.
Will the color get in my car?
Bring a towel or some plastic bags along, and you’ll be just fine. However, if you do get some in your vehicle, it can be dusted away or vacuumed easily.
