My team just got back covering the “The Color Run”  press conference, It is deem as the happiest 5K and I can assure you it will be the happiest 5K run ever. HECK, its not even a run, you can walk all the 5K and get covered in colors, that’s our game plan and we sure wanna be covered in every color  possible, the sponsor CIMB (Red), MINI (Yellow), New Balance (Blue) and W Hotel (Pink)

Lots of people have been asking for this, some even thinking its a HOAX as no official website has been announced and it was just a Facebook Page covering this event, but Guess WHAT ! ITS REAL. Pssst just a heads up for you readers, The Color Run Netherlands sold out all their slots in just 18 mins. So If I were you I would be waiting with my tablet, mobile phone or PC if I want to get myself registered.

Questions relating to the color/powder


  • Is it safe to participate?  What is the powder made of?    Yes, products are FDA approved and safe.  Cornstarch which is a household baking product which has color obtained from plant sources so is also natural


  • How will the powder be cleaned up?  All excess powder will be swept up and then washed away using high pressure water hoses.


  • Will the color ruin clothes or running shoes?
    The “color” does mostly wash out after the event.  As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful.  If you would like to preserve the color in your running shirt, spray it with vinegar and iron it.  If you wash your shirt, the color will eventually come out.


  • Do the kilometer “Color Zones” affect runner vision? Or breathing?
    The Color Run™ explosions are basically food grade cornstarch and are 100% natural and SAFE.  As with any substance, you want to keep it out of your eyes and our “certified” color throwers make sure to aim low as you pass by.  Some “Color Runners”  opt to wear glasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths.  Runners who run in the middle lane is the “low color lane,” which offers a “lighter” color experience.  In summary: We work pretty hard to make it so our precious “Color Runners” get as much or as little color on them as they like.


  • Do you have “cleaning stations” at the finish after party?
    We have air blown color cleaning at the finish line for a good dusting off, followed by water stations where you can rinse off excess color.  You won’t be 100% clean, but you are totally good for the journey home.  It is actually pretty fun to see people still colored up around town after The Color Run™ event.  It is like a badge of honor!


  • Are cameras and phones safe to have in the color zones?
    Our race photographers are totally fine shooting from a medium distance (25-50 feet).  If you want to get shots right in the midst of the color we recommend covering cameras/phones with plastic wrap / zip lock bag.


If you have any question do not be afraid to ask me here, I will try my best to answer you guys if I know the answer. In the meanwhile, Good Luck Registering yourself this 28th June.

    Why is it a two-days event?

    • Hi Fatin, thanks for dropping by, If I am not wrong the event is split into two days because they are expecting over whelming response from the public.

      This is base on the registration from around the world. Will you be joining?
