No, that’s no fun! Hard races aren’t fun. Hard races are hard! We have lots of fun not racing! Color in the park run is the best way to have fun with friends and family. You won’t be timed, so there is no pressure. Come partake in the colorful world we have created for you!
What time does the race begin?
The race begins at 12PM. We recommend getting there at least 30 minutes early so you have plenty of time to park and stretch! Please consider parking at the lot in front of the administration building or at the Junior/Senior High schools and walk down.The race begins at 12PM.

Will I be timed?
No timing for anyone. Just fun!
Are there age limits?
Not at all! Everyone is welcome to come have tons of colorful fun at the Exeter Color in the Park Run/Walk! 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 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.
Can I take pictures?
Of course! There may be a 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 Exeter Color in the Park for promotional purposes with or without your written consent. By photographing our event you acknowledge and agree to this condition.
Can I wear a costume?
Absolutely! We love costumes! The whiter the better!
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 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.Walking is totally acceptable.

Who does it benefit?
Exeter Township Schools
Can I run with my dog?
Dogs and other pets are not eligible to participate in the Exeter Color in the Park Run/Walk.
What should I wear?
Wear your Exeter Color in the Park Run/Walk 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.
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 at the event.
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!
