What is the Rainbow Zone?

Some of The Pride Run events feature a Rainbow Color Zone at the post-run village. Color packets will be sold near the finish line and a color throw will be done at a scheduled time after the finish. 🙂

The Rainbow Dust is made from cornstarch and non-toxic pigments. While you shouldn’t eat the stuff, it’s fine for rolling around in! As far as your cloths go, typical machine washing is sufficient to remove Pride Run Rainbow Dust from clothing. Be sure to remove excess color before applying water to prevent stains. We also suggest cleaning off before you get in your car.
