COLOR BLAST IS A 5K RUNNING EVENT THAT INSPIRES PEOPLE TO LIVE
A MORE ACTIVE LIFE.

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones” 

(Proverbs: 17:22)

Not at all!! We are a very fun and colorful race with lots of color vibes, and we have lots of fun not running! Color Vibe is the best way to be crazy with friends, family, or imaginary people. You won’t be timed, so there is no pressure to hurry and get ‘er done. Come bask in the colorful world we have created for you at this fun color 5k run.

The magical color powder we use is custom manufactured and produced right here in the United States, and it’s amazingly viberant. It is made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process that has been custom developed for the Color Vibe Race Series. Color Vibe powder is non-flammable, and is engineered to wash out very well. We could make it to stain your clothes, but then it would stain your hair, skin, and toenails, like the other color runs out there, and we don’t want that!

Our paint powder is non-toxic, 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 bandanna or dust mask for your mouth. (This is especially recommended for our younger runners/walkers). For more details on the safety of our colored powder please visit our color powder safety page.

Color Vibe is committed to ensuring a safe and fun run and event for all of our participants. Since 2012, the Color Vibe has held over 400 events with over 1,000,000 participants and spectators enjoying our awesome, colorful events!

Our custom color powder is made in the USA and our manufacturer ensures quality control by following Good Manufacturing Practices (G.M.P.) and is G.M.P. compliant. The Food and Drug Administration sets these manufacturing guidelines. Color Vibe powder is non-flammable.

There are many knock-off or low quality color runs out there that use overseas powder made in India. The powder from India is cheap to buy, however it comes with unknown risks. Color Vibe has always felt that it is worth the extra investment to use the best quality color powder available even though it is much more expensive. We encourage people to make sure that if you sign-up to participate in a color run, you do so with a company like Color Vibe that uses only high quality color powder that is made in the USA, the greatest country on the planet!

Color Vibe remains committed to working with local officials to ensure our event protocols reflect best practices, eliminate hazards, and ensures a safe event. Click the following link for more details on the safety of our colored powder

Of course! For most events we’ll also have our Color Vibe professional photography team covering all of the Color Vibe madness! If you do bring your camera, phone, pager, Walkman, or 8-track, we recommend keeping it in a plastic bag to keep the dust out!

If you are a photographer / videographer that would like to come and shoot our event, we will grant you permission with the understanding that any photographs / video you take may be used and edited by Color Vibe for marketing and promotional purposes with or without your written consent. By photographing or recording our event you acknowledge and agree to this condition.

The Color Vibe event will take place rain or shine. In the unlikely event of severe weather, stay tuned to the Color Blast Facebook Event Page for updates. We’ll take precautions as recommended by the National Weather Service, but only in extreme cases will the event be postponed or cancelled. Your safety is our number one priority–your fun is our close second.

Yes, bring ’em all! The kids love to get colored just as much as the rest of us, and it’s super fun to throw color all over them and make a big mess! Kids 12 and under are FREE! (Processing fee still applies). All kids must be registered in order to participate and must be accompanied by a paid adult. Please be sure to look after your kid(s) at the color event, so they don’t get lost in the crowd.

Most definitely they can come be a part of the craziest color day of your life! Just be sure to give them a big hug at the finish line for coming to support you! 🙂 There’s also lots of fun booths and vendors for them to check out while you’re getting color blasted on the color course!

Heck Yes! We love costumes! The whiter the better! Life’s too short to not be silly and have some fun, so grab a crazy wig and a costume, or get a tutu from the Color Blast store and let the fun times begin!

I wanna do a 5k run and get color blasted! The Color Vibe is the best 5k run where you’ll get covered with vibrantly awesome colors and have a blast as you get color thrown all over you! Plus, you’ll get hooked up with all the freshest gear for you to customize yourself. Too legit. So keep it cool and get ready to rock it out!

What’s the difference between a color run and chalk run you ask? The Color Blast is a 5K Run with color that is sometimes referred to as a paint run, paint race, chalk run, chalk race, or our personal favorite “color paint chalk race 5K run and party event”. So when people refer to a chalk or paint run, they are most likley talking about the same thing as a color run, (or colour run, depending on where you live). Color Vibe might be one of many 5k color runs throughout the nation, but it has the best color party around, and it’s a first-class color 5K production!

Most of our color races begin either at 8:00 or 9:00 AM (check your Official Color Vibe Event Guide for the exact start time), and then we’ll release waives every 5 minutes or so. We recommend getting there 60 minutes early so you have plenty of time to park and stretch! All good things must come to an end, so the color party usually concludes between 11am-12pm.

Walking is totally acceptable here at the Color Vibe. 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. Enjoy the beautiful colors!

Yes! There will be loads of awesome items for purchase at the event so you can show the world how much fun you had! You can get colorful tutus, vibrant bandannas, colorful sunglasses, and awesomely epic Color Vibe Shirts to run in, or wear to the club.
