Each heat will have approx 500 runners leaving the starting line area. Waves will leave every 3-5 minutes until all runners have been released.  Don’t stress if you don’t make it in the first heat, you’ll get your turn and it will be amazing!


There will be multiple glow zones throughout the course. This is where you’ll be blasted with awesome neon colors under UV black lights. As with any substance, you’ll want to keep it out of your eyes and mouth. Do not stop in the color stations. This will prevent a bottleneck for runners behind you. Don’t worry there will be plenty of fun throughout the course and especially at the AfterVibe party.


After crossing the finish line, please clear the finish line area so you don’t block other runners coming through the finish line. We will have a designated area for dancing and picture taking. There will be water available for you at the finish line.


Wear clothes you wouldn't mind getting color on, the color comes out for the most part, but that's not a guarantee. We recommend bringing something to protect your car for the ride home. A towel or garbage bag to sit on will do the trick and will prevent your car from getting as colorful as you. The sooner you clean up, the easier the color comes off.
