  • It’s a great idea to wear a white or light coloured t-shirt during the run to show off your explosion of Fun Run colours! (Bring a change of clothes for after the event).
  • Runners with light coloured or highlighted hair, to avoid light (short-term) staining of the hair, the morning of the event apply leave-in conditioner, coconut oil or olive oil. Alternatively, cover hair with a scarf or bandana.
  • Bandanas can be used to cover the runner’s mouth as they run through the colour zones.
  • Sunglasses or swim goggles can be used to cover the runner’s eyes as they run through the colour zones.
  • The powder is all certified non-toxic and will eventually wash out of everything – covering up when running through the colour zones just for extra protection.


  • Dust off as much dry powder as you can before you apply any water.
  • Cleaning your hair: dust any loose powder out of your hair. Most of the colour should come out. Wash your hair as you normally would. It is not uncommon for hints of some of the colour, pink and purple particularly, to stick around for a few washes. Lucky it’s school holidays!
  • Bring a change of clothes and a towel for your car for the ride home to keep the car clean.
