Have questions or concerns? Don’t hesitate to reach out! We’re here to help. We can’t wait to see you at an upcoming event soon!



What if there is bad weather?

You think a few storm clouds can stop the rad? Rain just brightens the colors!  We are a rain or shine event. BUT if the weather is deemed dangerous by the event director or local authorities, we will email you with cancellation or postponement details.

Can I bring my pet?

We love your pets, which is why they aren’t allowed. For the safety of pets and all participants, please leave your furry/scaly/slimy/squawking friends at home. Participation will be prohibited should they tag along. Service animals are allowed.

What do I wear?

Our color appears most vibrant on a clean white backdrop, so make sure whatever you wear is eligible for a tie-dye, as staining is not uncommon. You’ll receive a Color Me Rad t-shirt with your registration, but we like to keep those as mementos for after the race. We’ll have lots of Rad-branded options available (including white tees, tanks, and tutus) for purchase at packet pick-up and on race day.

What time should I arrive?

In a perfect world, we recommend you get there about 30–45 mins before your start time. This will give you wiggle room should you encounter traffic, choose to shop at the merch tent, or stretch out before the run.

Does the color wash off?

The powdered color is washable, and should easily wash off of skin and out of hair.

Is there an age limit?

We welcome all ages, even those still in the cooker. Kids 11 and older must register as adults and kids that are 10 and younger may participate in the Kid Run.

Is Color Me Rad safe?

The safety of our runners and employees has always been our top priority. Our color is certified non-toxic and cornstarch-based with food-grade dyes, but as with any substance, you won’t want it in your eyes. All Color Me Rad volunteers receive strict instructions to throw color below the head, but as an extra precaution, many runners opt to wear sunglasses or goggles, and the occasional bandana over the mouth and nose while passing through color stations. We want everyone to be as safe as possible, so if you are allergic to corn or food dye, participation in Color Me Rad is strictly off limits. If you are pregnant or have other health concerns, consult with your doctor.

Are tickets refundable or transferable?

As stated in the terms and agreement provided at the time of purchase, tickets are non-refundable. Event dates and location are subject to change. To transfer tickets to another person or another city email
