Frequently asked questions

Here are some common questions you may have. Please keep in mind that responding to your message again will push your original message to the back of our queue. We answer the oldest questions first, so if you respond to this thread it may take us a little longer than usual to get back to you.

Can a friend pick up my packet?

Sure thing! Make sure your waiver was signed, then just give the designated picker-upper a copy of your registration receipt (the one with the scancode). Easy Peasy.

*If you are unable to attend Packet Pickup on the day right before the event, it will be reserved for you on Event Day for a fee. There is a $5.00 fee per packet, per paid participant on Event Day, cash only. To avoid paying this fee, please attend Packet Pickup in person the day prior, or send a friend with a copy of your race barcode.

What is Color Frenzy 5K

Color Frenzy™ is none other than the brightest, most fun 5K out there. At the Color Frenzy™ we aren’t focused on how fast or how far you can run, what type of exercise you enjoy, or if you’re an avid runner. Instead, we welcome any and all participants looking for a colorful good time. Whether you sprint it, run it, or walk it, we don’t care! We simply want you to enjoy it. These three miles will be the best three miles you’ve ever spent with your friends and family—we promise.

Can I transfer my entry to another person?

We’ll sure miss seeing your glowing face, but of course you can! Simply fill out the Color Frenzy™ Transfer Form and have the new runner bring it to the event along with your original confirmation email.

What else should I bring?

In addition to a fun attitude, big smile and high fives, we suggest bringing a baggie for your cell phone or camera and perhaps a change of shoes. We recommend bringing some swim goggles or glasses to cover your eyes if you are concerned with powder getting in–especially if you wear contacts! Also consider purchasing one of our super neat Color Frenzy™ drawstring backpacks to tote your items in style! As we will not have storage facilities on site, please plan to bring only what you can carry with you onto the course.

Can I run with my dog?

We love dogs, but the Color Frenzy™ is a canine free event.

Is this family friendly? Do I register my child, under 5, if they are free entry?

All ages are welcome! This is a great family event with lots of fun, color, music, and memories. Kids 5 and under are free and do not need to be registered.
