What is the flying powder 5k?

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Whether it’s your first color race, you’re not a runner, or you’re an experienced athlete – ditch the boring road race for a Flying Powder Fun Run 5K!

The Flying Powder Fun Run 5K is an untimed color running race that aims to encourage healthy activity with a burst of color to help bring out your wild side! We believe that 5K races don’t always need to be about competition, but more about having fun & letting go. Throw color to the wind, and get messy – make a masterpiece! Start the color race with a fresh canvas – all white clothing. At each Kilometer, color running volunteers throw color into the air & by the end, you’re a walking Jackson Pollock! The run is fun, period. Join in the post-run Party, with more flying powder, dancing & fun! Get your friends & family together to get involved in the most fun you’ll ever have running a 5K race!

How is the color administered?

Imagine a food fight of completely colored sugar. The colored powder is tossed into the air as you run though it.

Yes! Documenting this fun event is encouraged! We suggest using plastic bags to protect cell phones or cameras from the color.
