Illuminate Your Sole at the
Bay Area Color Stride 5K!

The Bay Area Color Stride 5K is a family friendly, untimed run / walk that supports headsup of San Rafael and Progeria Research.

Participants of all ages and fitness levels will be blasted with a safe and non-toxic colored powder several times along the route at the color stations.

Color FAQs

The color mostly washes out after the event.

Keep the colors out of your eyes.  Some participants opt to wear glasses or goggles and use a bandana for their mounts.

We recommend bringing some towels for the inside of your car for the ride home.
