FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
THE ART AND SCIENCE OF ASKING QUESTIONS IS THE SOURCE OF ALL KNOWLEDGE
What is included with my registration?
Each registered runner will receive the limited edition Colorquest5K Participant Kit, AKA Swag Bag. This includes a super cool white tee, 1st Edition finisher medal, Colorquest5K cap, organic colour packet, Colorquest5K bag, many many goodies and tons of discount coupons!
What is the inspiration behind Colorquest5K?
The Colorquest5K is the first Indian race of its kind and is inspired by several awesome events, including Disney’s World of Color, Paint Parties, The Color Run, and our beloved Holi festival. We want to create an experience that’s more about the cherishing every bit of the run. This run is not about the best timing, but the best experience you can achieve.
Is Colorquest5K safe?
The safety and health of our participants and our employees has always been at the forefront of our minds and actions. We have a long list of highly vetted policies and processes we conduct thorough testing to ensure the safety of our materials and their application. The powder is all certified non-toxic. Colorquest5K is committed to staging safe and secure events.
Can children participate?
If they can cover the 5 Kilometers of the course (by running, jogging, walking, or strolling), they can absolutely participate in Colorquest5K. There are two options for all our Junior Participants, 7 and younger on the registration form. They can register for a super low fee and get the full participant kit, or chose to register for free without a participant kit.
How do I get my participant kit? How does that work?
You will choose the location of your SWAG Bag pickup at the time of order. Details on when and where the Bib Party will be hosted are posted as an email to you and also posted on the website. It will generally happen 2 weeks before the race.
Can someone else pick up my SWAG Bag for me?
You bet! As long as you send them with a printed or electronic copy of your confirmation email along with a hard-copy of your Govt. issued photo ID! Please ensure that these 2 are available with the person picking up your kit.
How is the colour administered along the course?
Our amazing volunteers will be stationed along the course. Their main goal is to sink you in colors. Our team will ensure that you look like you ran through a beautiful rainbow by the time you cross the finish line.
Will the organic colour ruin our clothes or running shoes?
The colour does mostly wash out after the event. As with anything dirty, the sooner you wash it the better. We suggest wearing items that you wouldn’t mind getting colourful.
How do the pre and post race colour throws work?
Our Emcees and RJs will keep you occupied with the colour throws at regular intervals. The crowd will be involved in these colour throws. We provide one bag of color for each runner and more packets can be purchased on race day. Don’t be afraid to throw some colour around.
Do the Colour Zones affect runner vision? Or breathing?
The color powder used at Colourquest5K is all certified non-toxic and free of any heavy metals. Some participants opt to wear sunglasses or goggles for their eyes and use a bandana or dust mask for their mouths. These are included in our safety kits that can be added to your cart at the time of purchase of tickets.
