Do you have “cleaning stations” at the venue?
No. With a good dusting off, you aren’t completely clean, but you most likely are good for the drive home. It is actually pretty fun to see people still colorful around town after event. It is our badge of honor!

No refund since we have already incurred expenses for organizing this event.
What is the RIA Color Run 3K route? Do I run on the road or side-walk?
Ref map below, the RIA Color Run 3K will start from Bristol Park entrance, walkers will walk on NE Cedar Park Crescent towards the Rosa Park School circle ~1.5 Kms and turn back from the circle to return to Bristol Park entrance. You need to walk ONLY on the right side-walk while going towards the Rosa Park School and use the same sidewalk to return to Bristol Park entrance. We got permission from the county for this side-walk alone. There will not be any road closures, so watch out for cars etc., as you will usually do.
