Is the race hard?
No, that’s no fun! Hard races aren’t fun. Hard races are hard! We have lots of fun not racing! Color Me Mifflin is the best way to get nuts with friends, family, or imaginary people. You won’t be timed, so there is no pressure to hurry and get ‘er done. Come partake in the colorful world we have created for you!
What is the color made of?
The magical color powder we use is custom manufactured and produced right here in the United States. It is made from food grade quality cornstarch using an advanced manufacturing process. It is non-toxic, is 100% safe, and also biodegradable. As with any substance, you will want to keep it out of your eyes and lungs. If you are overly sensitive, you may want to wear glasses or goggles for your eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for your mouth. (This is especially recommended for our younger runners/walkers)
Can I take pictures?
Of course! There may be a Color Me Mifflin Photographer walking around taking pictures of all the madness! If you do bring your camera, phone, pager, Walkman, or 8-track, we recommend keeping it in a plastic bag to keep the dust out!
If you are a photographer that would like to come and photograph our event, we will grant you permission with the understanding that any photographs you take may be used and edited by Color Me Mifflin for promotional purposes with or without your written consent. By photographing our event you acknowledge and agree to this condition.
Are kids allowed?
Yes, kids love to get colored just as much as the rest of us. All kids must have a release waiver signed by a parent/guardian and turned in before they are allowed to participate. The waiver can be obtained here.
Can my family watch?
Most definitely they can come be a part of the most insane color day of your life! Just be sure to give them a big hug at the finish line for coming to support you!
Can I wear costumes?
Absolutely! We love costumes! The whiter the better!
What time does the race begin?
The race begins at 10:00AM. We recommend getting there at least 30 minutes early so you have plenty of time to park and stretch! Please consider parking at the Governor Mifflin Intermediate School and walking over. What a great warm up idea!!
Can I Walk?
Walking is totally acceptable. You will be one of many who will be walking. We don’t time the race and it is non-competitive, so you won’t feel any pressure.
Can I purchase more items?
There will be additional color powder for purchase as well stands from local non-profit groups.
How do I volunteer?
We’d love to have you come and help as a volunteer. Please contact Sheri Klahr at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your colorful assignment.
Who does it benefit?
100% of the Color Me Mifflin profits benefit the Governor Mifflin Middle School Parent Advisory Council.
What’s the price and how do I register?
The registration price for Color Me Mifflin participants varies based upon when you register as well as how make your payment. The sooner you register the cheaper the cost. The online registration can be found here and be sure to submit your payment to finalize your registration. here.
What do I get for registering?
If you mail a check or drop off your cash payment at the middle school office, the cost is $20 for adults and $15 for students if you register by April 15th. If you choose to pay online through Paypal, registration is $21 for adults and $16 for students (which includes a processing fee). Once your registration is finalized with payment, you will receive your 2019 Color Me Mifflin run bag including your t-shirt, packet of color for some pre-run fun and sponsor information/surprises at our “Pre-race pick up”. After April 15th, there is no guarantee you’ll get a shirt so please be sure to register early.
Where can I pick up my race package?
Pre-race pick-up will be in the Governor Mifflin Middle School cafeteria (130 E. Lancaster Ave., Reading, PA 19607) on Friday, May 3rd from 6:30pm to 8:00pm or you may pick it up from 9:00am to 9:45am at the Shillington Park on the morning of the race.
Can I run with my Dog?
Dogs and other pets (anything non-human that poops) are not eligible to participate in Color Me Mifflin.
Are there age limits?
No way! Everyone is welcome to come have tons of colorful fun at the Color Me Mifflin Run! Strollers and wheelchairs are welcome! We do recommend that your kids are properly protected with sunglasses, and for toddlers and infants, maybe even something to cover their mouth. The powdered paint is non-toxic and made mainly with corn starch, but it could irritate the smaller ones more than us.
Will I be timed?
No timing chips, but you will have the “time of your life”!
What should I wear?
Wear your awesome new Color Me Mifflin shirt found in your race package. The rest is up to you!! We suggest white clothing because it shows the color the best!
Will the color stain my clothes, shoes, or makeup?
If you want a lot of color to hit your shirt, plan to run or walk closer to the color throwers. If you want only a little bit of color, run or walk in the farthest lane from the throwers. The color does mostly wash out after the event, but some of it can stain. As with anything, the sooner you wash it the better. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colorful.
Will the color get in my car?
Bring a towel or some plastic bags along, and you’ll be just fine. However, if you do get some in your vehicle, it can be dusted away or vacuumed easily.
