About This Activity

The Rock4Kids "Paint the Run" is open to kids pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. If family members wish to be on the race courses, they must register.  For liability issues, we are not allowed to have unregistered runners or walkers on the courses.

Kid's will be "painted" at anywhere from two-four stations on their course. The "paint" is comprised of a food grade colored cornstarch. It will not harm skin or eyes. Most of the color will wash out of clothes, but this is not guaranteed, so dress accordingly. Finishers receive Rock4Kids Paint the Run medals and all participants receive white short sleeve cotton event t-shirts. They should wear their race shirts on the day. Come prepared for some great fun!
