Home > Community Hub > Colors of the Earth FAQs

Do I need to be a runner to do this?
NO! This event is all about fun and getting colorful.

Is the run timed?
No, take your time and have fun! 

What is included with my registration?
Runners will receive a white t-shirt, a bag of color, and sunglasses in their runner packet at check-in.

Does the Colors of the Earth 5k Fun Run benefit a nonprofit organization?
Yes. All proceeds will benefit the South Jersey Field of Dreams.

Is there an age limit/minimum?
No age limits! If they can cover the three miles of the course, they can participate. 

Can my kids run with me or can I use a jogging stroller?
Yes! All kids 5 and under can run with an adult free of charge, please include them on your registration application.

How do the runners encounter the color?
Volunteers along the course will (gently) toss colorful powder at the runners. 

What happens at the end of the run?
The crowd will be involved in a color throw at the end of the run. We provide one bag of color in your runner packet.

Does the powder wash off?
It does wash out of your clothes, skin and hair. It is recommended to wear white clothes that you don’t care about getting stained because it can stain if it gets wet. More information on the powder can be found here:

Does the powder affect vision or breathing?
The colored powder used is food-grade cornstarch. Our volunteer throwers will not throw the substance into your eyes. We will provide sunglasses and you may wear glasses or goggles for your protection. You may wear your own bandana or dust mask to cover your mouth, but do not have to.  

Will there be a place to clean off after the run?
We will have air blowers to provide cleaning, however you won’t be 100% clean.  You should be good to stay for the Earth Day Festival and show off your colors!

Will it dirty my car on the way home?
We recommend lining your seats with a towel or bringing a change of clothes.

What happens if it rains?
The run will go on as scheduled rain or shine.

Are there refunds?
We cannot issue refunds, but if you can’t make it to the run, we will save your packet with your t-shirt, sunglasses and color pack.
