FAQs


Is this a true 5K?
Yes!


Where should I park?


Parking will be on the Walnut Grove property in any parking lot or street within the development that is not blocked. However, the closer to race time the further away you may have to park so keep that in consideration when deciding what time to arrive.


What do I need to know about the Nutty Fun Color Run?


The Nutty Fun Color Run is for kids ages 2 and up that register and any parents who want to run alongside them.


Although the color is washable, you may not want to wear anything you wouldn’t want damaged just in case.


Before driving home, take a few minutes to dust off as much dry powder as you can. Take advantage of one of the race fans to cool down while it blows off most of the color. You may want to bring an old towel to cover the car’s seats or bring a change of clothes.


Cleaning your hair: Dust any loose powder out of your hair.
Wash your hair as you normally would. It is not uncommon for hints of some of the color to stick around for a few washes.


Just about everything should clean up fine, remove all excess powder before adding water and wash anything used in the Color Run separately, with COLD water. Oxiclean, or a similar product, works wonders we’re told.


There are many tips online for how to deal with the color before and after the race. We have included a few but please take the time to look up any additional tips or call us if you have any questions we can help with.
