Do I need to be an experienced runner to do this?
Not at all, the Combat Color run is for everyone, whether you are an experienced runner or newbie.¬† Worry less about the running and more about not getting hit with color, and most of all, have fun.
What is included with my registration?
Runners will receive a custom event shirt, a bag of color,¬†and a free drink.¬† Shirt sizes cannot be guaranteed after October 1.¬†
Where can I get my registration packet?
You can pick up your packet the day of the run at the registration tables.
Can I register the day of the event?
Absolutely, just show up on the day of the run.
Do you donate to a charity or cause?
Yes, since this is the COMBAT Color Run, organized by the Sheridan College Veterans¬†Club, all proceeds will go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Can I run/walk with my children?
Yes!¬† Just register them when you register and sign the waiver on their behalf.¬†
Can I run with my dog?
Sorry, there can be no dogs.¬† Nobody wants to accidentally step in poop or get bitten.
Is there an age limit for younger runners?
There is no age limit, but they need to be able to make it through the selected run or walk course.
How is the color administered?¬† Will I be hurt, maimed, or killed?
“Enemy combatants” will be attacking the runners along the way with color.¬† It is like getting hit with powdered sugar.¬† Laugh, throw some powder back, keep going, and you will be fine.¬† Enemy combatants will aim for the middle of your body and away from children, but a bandana or glasses or goggles are recommended.
Will the color ruin clothes or running shoes?
The ‚Äúcolor‚ÄĚ does mostly wash out after the event.¬† Prior to washing shake out as much powder as you can.¬† As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better.¬† We suggest wearing items that you wouldn‚Äôt mind getting colorful.¬† If you would like to preserve the color in your running shirt, spray it with vinegar and iron it before you wash it.¬†
Do you have ‚Äúcleaning stations‚ÄĚ at the finish after party?
Yes, we will have air blowers available as that is preferred for getting powder off clothes and hair.¬†¬†Or just enjoy the colorful expression of your fitness, and wear your colors proudly.
How does the color affect the inside of cars?
People should bring a change of clothes or towels for the insides of their cars, just in case.
Can spectators attend the post-race party?
Absolutely, color and¬†t-shirts will be available for purchase.¬† However, they may get a little colorful.¬† Food, drink, and music will also be near.
Are cameras and phones safe to have in the color zones?
We will have photographers in a couple of spots including the finish line, but if you want to get shots right in the midst of the action, we recommend covering cameras/phones with plastic wrap.
Is it timed?
This is not a timed event.
How does the post-race color battle work?
At the finish line, find your friends and start a color battle.¬† We provide one bag of color in your registration packet and more can be purchased at check-in or the finish if desired.
Are there refunds?
Unfortunately, we cannot issue refunds.¬† The logistics of setting up and planning the event make it impossible.¬† Just make sure you are good to go before signing up.
How do I transfer my registration to another person?
We are sorry, but there are no transfers unless both parties are present when the registration packet is received.
