General information

Arrival and pre check-in

When you arrive at the parking lot, please follow the signage and the directions given by our staff. As soon as you arrive at the event, we will require you to show us your ID and confirmation of the filled terms & conditions form. You can find the form here.

  

The terms and conditions form must be filled up by each participant individually (and bring the email proof). In order to allow you to participate in the event.

  

It is okay if participants aged under 16 years on the date of the event don’t have a valid ID, as long as their parent, legal guardian, or a responsible adult who accompanies the participant has one. 

  

Please ensure that you remember to bring with you a valid photographic ID, a valid ticket and the confirmation of filled terms & conditions form. You don’t have to print your ticket or email confirmation of the completed T&C form, you can also show them from your phone. 

If you have pre-ordered any products, you will need to show a valid order confirmation at the pre-order pick up point. The pick up point can be found at the store in the festival area.

  

Please note there will be no tickets available for sale on the event day. Ticket sale will end on Sunday week before the event.

Check-in

At the check-in, you will be asked to show us your ticket.

  

To speed up the check-in, please prepare your ticket and you order confirmation (if you have one) in advance.  

  

You will receive your T-shirt and wristband at the checking. You will receive your pre-ordered products (face paint, tutus, etc.) after check-in from the store pickup point. The store can be found inside the festival area that you can enter after you have checked in. In order to receive your pre-ordered products, we ask you to show your order confirmation.

We kindly ask you to decide in advance which T-shirt you would like to receive at the check-in (they are standard unisex, range S-XL). If you feel you are somewhere between two sizes, take the larger one: it will be more comfortable! Unfortunately, as a safety measure, we do not allow exchanges. 

The wristband is your ticket to the event. You must wear it on your wrist throughout the event.

After the check-in, you will also have an opportunity to buy some merchandise at our store. We accept cash and card payments. Unfortunately, due to global events there might be shortages on some items at the store.

And one more thing: you’ll receive your personal color packet as soon as you cross the finish line!

Security of the event

Click here to go to the terms and conditions form. We ask you to fill it out before the event date. Each participant must fill out the form.

After submitting the form, you will receive a confirmation email that must be presented at the event entrance. You don't need to print out the confirmation or the T&Cs as long as you can show the email on your phone screen! To avoid problems at the entrance, please make sure that all other group members have also filled out their own forms!

Underage participants aged 12-15 must be accompanied by a supervisor throughout the event.

All participants must be at least 12 years old on the day of the event. 

Participants in the Color Obstacle Rush should be aware that they participate at their own risk. For your safety and the safety of all other participants, we ask you to follow the instructions of our team throughout the event.

Warm-up

Before every start group there will be a warm-up to get you prepared for the run. Like everything at Color Obstacle Rush, the warm-up is about having fun, too! Get ready to dance and stretch with us!  

The event is separated into start groups of approximately 500 participants per slot. It will take 20 to 30 minutes for the whole start slot to go through the gate so please be patient (the start is done this way to avoid queues on the course). Please follow the instructions by the host as they guide you to the Start Line. At the Start Line please follow the instructions of our staff.

Remember that the event is not a competition and the most important thing is to have fun! So if you prefer not to run then jogging or walking around the course are perfectly acceptable. Please be considerate to the faster runners and leave room for them to pass and vice versa. Peace, love, understanding and sweet harmony to every rusher regardless of their running pace!

Merchandise

There is a store at the event selling items including sunglasses, bandanas, paint packs, face paint, tattoos, silicone bracelets and gym bags. We accept card and cash payments in the store. 

Unfortunately, due to global events we might have shortages of some items at the store!

You can collect your possible pre-ordered products from the collection point at the store.

Where to keep your stuff?

You will be able to leave clothing in our controlled cloakroom. The cloakroom will cost £2 per participant and you will also be charged £1 for each visit (apart from when you pick up your belongings to leave of course). Please note that we take payments by cash or card.

 

Each participant will be able to leave one bag at the cloakroom. As cloakroom space is limited, we will not accept any bags that are bigger than a regular size rucksack, can’t be hung or weigh more than 5 kg. Permitted items are a jacket or a regular size rucksack (large items such as duffel bags are not allowed).

 

We also strongly recommend you to leave any valuable items at home. Color Obstacle Rush will accept no liability for any items that are lost and/or damaged whilst in the cloakroom. 

 

We recommend that you use an appropriate armband with your mobile phone if you want to have it on the course with you. You may also want to put your mobile phone in a clear zipped bag in order to help to protect it from the color, water splashes and foam that forms part of the event. You will not be allowed to carry any bags or rucksacks when participating in the event.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothes would be a good start!

 

Wearing contact lenses while running is not recommended. But normal glasses are perfectly fine. The main thing is that you wear some kind of eye protection (e.g. sunglasses). A face mask and comfortable running shoes are also a good idea.

 

On the day of the event you will receive your Color Obstacle Rush T-Shirt, which will be worn by most of the rushers during the event. Please do not wear anything pointed/sharp or similar during the entire run. with you, because this could injure the other participants or damage the inflatable obstacles.

 

Because some obstacles include slides, we recommend wearing long pants.

 

Please note that there are  NO showers at the venue . When the weather is nice, it's easy to shake the powdered paint off your clothes. In wet weather, we recommend bringing a change of clothes, some towels or a large plastic bag so you don't carry the paint into your car or public transport. Buses and trains may not allow passengers on board who do not have clean clothing or something to cover the seats. 

If you bring a change of clothes, we ask that you leave your belongings in the car and change in the parking lot after the event.



Obstacles and color

It might take a few minutes before you can enter the obstacles so please be patient. Please follow the instructions given by the staff as they guide you to the Start Line. 

  

There will be approximately 20 different obstacles along the route, which is around 5 kilometers long. Please note that we reserve the right to make changes to the number and range of the obstacles: depending on the venue, terrain, weather, and other circumstances we might not be able to use all of our obstacles at every Color Obstacle Rush event. 

The obstacles are quite easy and fun but you will need to be careful and also pay attention to other runners. If you feel that an obstacle looks too challenging, you can always pass around it if you prefer. Please don’t stop at any of the obstacles to wait for your friends, take photos (or for a nap). This will interfere with the flow of the course and cause congestion and queues at the obstacles. 

  

It takes approximately 45–75 minutes to complete the course. Remember that the event is not a competition and the most important thing is to have fun – if you prefer not to run, jogging or walking around the course are also perfectly acceptable! Please be considerate to the faster runners and leave room for them to pass and vice versa. Peace, love, understanding, and sweet harmony to everyone regardless of their running pace! 

  

There are 6 coloring points on the route. The color is 100 % natural corn starch that’s been dyed with food/cosmetic colors. The powder is specifically manufactured for these kinds of events. We use only fire retardant color powder in all of the Color Obstacle Rush events. However, it may cause allergic reactions to those allergic to dust and may also cause asthma attacks.  

  

Some inflatable obstacles may get hot in the sun. It's not a bad idea to wear leggings etc. to make the experience more comfortable!   

You should wear sunglasses or other eye protection at each color point.

Can I participate if I am pregnant or I have some health issues?

If you are pregnant or have any issues with your health we recommend you consult your doctor before entering the Color Obstacle Rush. Although our mission is to make the race as safe as possible for every participant, there is always the possibility of unforeseeable incidents (such as falling or bumping into another person).

Finish and Color Festivals

You get your color pack at the Finish Line. If you have purchased additional color packs, you will receive them at the store pickup point inside the festival area. Then the Color Festival can start. Just follow the instructions of our host and DJ to ensure maximum safety and have fun! You don't necessarily need your own color packs for the Color Festival, and you can of course buy them at any time from our store.

We kindly ask you not to throw anything else on the ground other than colored powder (no packaging waste etc.)!

Please do not stay on the premises after the Color Festival. We understand that you might want to wait for your group members or just relax and celebrate your great achievement, but unfortunately we have to ask you to proceed straight to the exit after the Color Festival so we can avoid crowds forming at the Finish Line.

Photos and social media

Our photographer will come to capture your fun among the obstacles. All the photos will be posted on our webpage a week after the event. However, we cannot guarantee that there will be photos of all participants.

You can check out the photos from here when they arrive.

You are welcome to bring an action cam (like GoPro) or smartphone to the event, but selfie sticks are not allowed for security reasons. Just remember that there is color powder, foam and other people on the event so remember to cover your device.
