What is the Color Me RU?
The Color Me RU is a fun 2 ½ mile run/walk which focuses on having a great experience running with your friends while getting blasted by a rainbow of colors. We do not care how long it takes you to run, walk or crawl the distance. Rather, we want you to take your time, laugh, dance and get completely covered with our colorful powder. This is all about having FUN!! Did we say yet we want you to have FUN?
What is the color?
Throughout the 2 1/2 mile course we will have COLOR ZONES where you will be blasted with color cornstarch from our happy volunteers. Each zone will be a specific color and we plan on having 6 color zones. Volunteers, who will also be having FUN, will be throwing the colored cornstarch at you. You will also receive your own goodie bag of color at the finish line to throw on your friends and whoever may be in your throwing range. All products are 100% natural and safe. You can even eat it if you want but it probably won’t taste too good!! Check out our map to see the course and to view the Color Zones. (click image to enlarge)
