What is a Dye Run?
A Dye Run is a chip timed 5K event that adds a bit of fun by setting up color stations where volunteers throw color powder onto the participants as they pass through each station.

What is the color powder?
It is a non-toxic, biodegradable food grade colored cornstarch.

Can I do the run without the color?
There will be a way for runners not wishing to pass through the color stations to run without being colored.

Will the color stain my clothing?
We encourage people with light hair or color treated hair to pre-treat their hair with leave-in conditioner to make for easier removal. Hat’s scarves or bandanas are a good idea for runners worried about color removal. Also, use common sense when dressing for the color run. Brand new running shoes would be best left at home for this event.

Can I register the morning of the event?
Yes, there is an additional $10 fee for race day registration and t-shirts are first come, first serve so pre-register as soon as possible.

If I can’t make the race, can my registration be refunded?

No, there are no refunds. Registration can be transferred up to October 1, 2015 by emailing denise@earlytx.com

Can I bring my pet?
We love pets but the Dye Run is not the best event for pets, so sorry no pets.

Can I push a stroller?
That is left up you. The color is a food grade corn starch that will get into and onto your stroller as well as you and your little one. Glasses, goggles, hats and scarves are a good idea to keep the little ones from inhaling the color, but it is up to you as the parent/guardian to decide what is best for your child
