Frequently Asked Questions

Can I register in person?
Yes, registration will open at 10:00 a.m. the day of the race at Fenner Fields. Registration forms will be available, just remember to bring your $15.00 registration fee.

Do I need to be an expert runner to do this?
Oh my goodness, NO. There are plenty of other great 5ks out there to test speed and performance. The Color Run event is all about a color crazy day with friends and family. You can run, walk, crawl, or cartwheel if you wish!

What is included with my The Color Run registration?
Each registered runner will receive an official 2016 custom race t-shirt and entrance to the run!

Can I run with my kids?
All kiddos 5 and under can run with an adult FREE of charge but need to register and sign the wavier! (T-shirt NOT included for kids 5 & under)

Can I run with my dog/cat/turtle?
For the safety of our runners and animal friends, we do not allow animals at the run. :(

Is there an age limit for younger runners?
No age limits! If they can cover (running, jogging, walking) the three miles of The Color Run course, they can absolutely participate in the Cazenovia Do Or Dye Color Run! Remember though, as soon as they turn 6 they will need to register!

How strict is the “white clothing dress code” for the start of the event?
As long as runners wear shirts that are mostly white, they are good to go! Shorts don’t need to be white. It is really just more fun to run starting in white and ending, well…. COLORIFFIC !!!!!

How is the color administered along the course?
You will see smiling faces along the course whose main goal is to douse you in colorful powder to ensure that you look like you ran through a beautiful rainbow by the time you cross the finish line.

How do the post-race color throws work?
At the Finish line, the crowd will be involved in a color throw every 15 minutes to welcome new runners coming in.

Will the color ruin clothes or running shoes?
The color is designed to 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.

How does the color affect the inside of cars?
Most people bring some towels for the insides of their cars, or a change of clothes just in case.

Can spectators attend the post-race festivities?
Absolutely but you may want to warn them though… they may not be coming out of The Color Run party clean!

Are cameras and phones safe to have in the color zones?
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 a protective case or plastic wrap.

Is The Color Run timed?
The Color Run 5k is not a timed event. Runners tend to take their sweet time out there and we realized no one really cares about their speed :) We suggest self-timing for anyone desiring a finish time.

Are there refunds?
Because of scheduling this event will be held rain or shine and because it’s a fundraiser 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.

For questions or more information regarding refunds, please click here.

If an emergency arises can I transfer my registration to another person?
Please click here and email our advisors your name along with the word "Transfer" in the subject line. Then leave the details of the transfer including a completed registration form for the new runner in the body of the email.

What if I am pregnant?
It's totally up to what you and your doctor decide. The powder is all certified non-toxic. We recommend wearing sunglasses or goggles, and a bandana over your mouth and nose in the color zones just for extra protection.

What happens if there is bad weather?
A little rain won't stop the happiest event of the year! It even makes the color brighter! If there are major weather warnings during the weekend of the event, check this webpage for event updates.

What if I have a super sweet question that isn’t answered here?
Please click here to contact us and we will get back to you with an answer. If your question is awesome enough, we might even publish it right here on the official Cazenovia Color Run FAQS page.

Note: Late registrants can register but t-shirts will only be available while supplies last. So no guarantees when registering late.
