The color from the chalk that is thrown onto the runners at the finish should wash out after the event. The sooner its washed out, the better. It is suggested you wear items you wouldn’t mind becoming colorful and bring extra towels or cloths. Each family will be provided plastic sheets to place in their car to prevent transfer of color. If you are worried about your eyes, wear sunglasses, a visor or bandana to protect your eyes. Anything that you don’t want colored should be left in your car or placed in a plastic bag to protect it from the chalk. It will be helpful if you are driving to have wipes so that you don’t spread chalk on everything you touch in your car.
Please note: dogs will not be allowed on the property the day of the event. The 5K route is rugged and not suitable for very small children or strollers.
