What does volunteering for The Color Run™ entail?
Volunteering for the Color Run is fun for everyone! As a volunteer, you will be working with excited Color Runners and experienced Color Run staff. Volunteers should be prepared to do any number of assignments. We need volunteers before the race for packet pick-up and race day. Race day volunteer positions vary from helping with check-in to working at water stations to throwing color at the runners. Volunteers must be 15 years of age or older.

How does this event benefit Cool Kids Campaign?
We receive a donation from The Color Run for every one of the volunteers we recruit! Volunteers will help out in the areas of packet pickup, color zones, on course, at start/finish lines and check-in. Directions and more info will be distributed to you closer to the event. We need at least 200 volunteers for each race, so help us out by registering to volunteer now.
What is The Color Run™?
The Color Run™ 5K is a unique experience focused less on speed and more on crazy COLOR fun with friends and family. Color runners come in all different ages, shapes, sizes and speeds; but everyone toeing the start line has a blast! Whether you’re a casual morning mall walker or an Olympic athlete, the 3 miles of The Color Run™ course will be the most memorable and colorful run of your life!
What is the color made of?
Each kilometer of the event is associated with a designated color: yellow, orange, pink and blue. As the runners and walkers reach the kilometer COLOR zones, they are blitzed by volunteers, sponsors, and staff with COLOR (dyed cornstarch). All products are 100% natural and safe. You can eat the stuff if you’d like, although we have tried it and don’t suggest it – surprisingly high in calories and leaves a chalky aftertaste! Of course, we save the best for last, ending the race with a color extravaganza of epic proportions.
