Run Or Dye™ - All About Us
What if I'm not an Olympic Gold Medalist? Can I still participate?
Anyone and everyone is welcome to come Dye with us! We have been fondly called Walk or Dye by the National Association of Mall Walkers (Hehehe) and we are called Dance or Dye by the World Dance in Color Federation of Fun Dancers. Basically this event is for YOU!
What do I wear?
Showing off your color will work with just about ANYTHING you wear. We recommend the brightest white or light grey to show off ALL the colors... but don't let that discourage you from going crazy with the sauciest accent colors imaginable. You are your very own canvas - so be adventurous! Create costumes with your friends to wow even yourselves! (Wear the the brightest colors (bright light fluorescent yellow, green, pink or blue - but remember if you wear bright blue the blue from the event won't show on those articles of clothing.)What does Run or Dye do for Charity?
Quite a bit, actually - but there is ALWAYS more to be done to support the many good causes in the Run or Dye cites. Every Run or Dye event works closely with a local charity to ensure that the good they do can keep going in your community. If you'd like to recommend a charity in one of the cities we run in, do so on the CONTACT US page!
What do I get when I sign up for Run or Dye?
You get a Run or Dye event shirt, extra dye packet, event race number, and a goodie-stuffed swag bag (varies from race to race). Most importantly, you get the most fun you can have dye-ing!
Run or Dye is for Families. Kids 6 and under run free with an adult - no need to Register them. For your older kids - show them how fun being active can be and register them to participate. Jogging and regular strollers are OK! (Scooters, bicycles, and skateboards are not.) Just remember, they will most likely get colored dye on them!
We love the pooches as much as anybody - but they aren't allowed at Run or Dye - SORRY! You'll get enough color that you can still take some home for Sparky before a bath and get some priceless pics!
Packet Pick Up?
We will post information about Packet Pick Up a week or two before the event. Make sure you like us on Facebook so you can stay tuned to all of our announcements!
Should I wear my $400 jeans?
The Dye we use is completely safe and will wash out of your clothes - but we don't do your laundry so results may vary depending on detergent, temperature, etc. For this reason we recommend you have your MOM wash your clothes - or just wear stuff that you don't mind if it gets a little color on it... probably don't bring your $400 pair of stark white jeans to Run or Dye. You may also want to avoid wearing your $400 white jeans to: The movies, a bar, the grocery store, or in your brothers nasty car. (Just sayin')
How will I know my time for running the 5k?
We don't time Run or Dye. You could always grab a stopwatch from your Jr. High Gym Coach?
Can I bring friends or family to support me?
Everyone is welcome at Run or Dye. Your guests should come expecting to possibly get hit with some Dye or stay a safe distance back.
Can I register the day of the Event?
Most of our events sell out before the event, but check our website before you come. Registration at the event in the rare case it is available will be $10 more than online and shirts / gear will be available on a first come - first serve basis.
How can I get support or other help?
Send an email to email@example.com and we will get back to you right away. NOTE: Because we like to dye on the weekends, it can take a couple of days to to get back to you (Thursday to Sunday).
