Wear as much white as possible…Come in all white and leave a colorful egg.
What to bring:
Plastic zip bags for any electronics
Towel for the car ride home
Baby wipes for cleaning up
Strollers? Hang on it’s going to be a bumpy ride…The course will be
completely off road and is simply for fun so walking’s an option. We’ll
leave it up to you to decide if your little one is up for an off roading trip!
Contacts? If you wear contacts it’s best to not have them in for the race. The color is in powdered form so as it’s being thrown there’s a high likelihood that you may get some in your eyes. Wear your glasses…your eyes will thank you for it!
What about clean up? The color is made to not be permanent. If you’d like to preserve your T-shirt you can try spraying it with a water/vinegar mixture which may help to “set” the color in your shirt.
Will the color wash off skin/out of hair? Yes! The easiest way to get it off is while it’s still dry (shake, wiggle, jump up and down, vacuum). After that, soap and water, with a little rinse and repeat action will do the trick. Also, if you want to make sure the color doesn’t absorb into your hair, spritz your hair before the run with a 50/50 solution of water and conditioner. It will help with washing the color out.
What if it gets in our eyes? Wear glasses/sunglasses to help protect your eyes, but never fear, the color is non-toxic. A simple rinse with water will take care of any that finds its way into your participant’s eyes.
Can we eat the colors? Not recommended. It is corn starch, but will taste about like colored dirt. We recommend wearing it, not ingesting it.
Are the colors safe? Our vibrant colors are made up of Corn starch and FD&C and/or D&C colors. Color safety information: Approved for use in foods, cosmetics and/or drugs. These products are not considered hazardous, 29 CFR 1910-1200.
