What is a color run? Its a short, fun run where participants wear white or light-colored clothing and throughout the course are splattered with an assortment of powdery colors. The powders are a non-toxic combination of baking soda, cornstarch, and safe dyes. Even though it is safe, it may take a few washes to get the color completely out of your clothing; washing your outfit right away works best. Some people wear glasses or goggles to keep the color out of their eyes and use a bandana to keep it out of their mouth.
