Please note that we may not be able to answer any questions during the event weekend.

Please do allow for up to 30–45 minutes waiting time for the package pick up. If you want to arrive early and take part in an extra warm-up session, or two, then feel free to do so!

The Participant Pack includes a t-shirt and wristband plus any extra stuff you have pre-ordered.

The wristband is your entry ticket to the event. You need to have it on your wrist at all times, otherwise you will be refused admission to the event. All minors will get a wristband of a specific colour. With the ‘minor wristband’ the participant won’t be able to enter the festival area or the obstacle course without a guardian.

You’ll receive your personal colour packet and a medal as soon as you cross the finish line and enter the festival area.

2. What to wear?

Clothing is a great start! You must wear either sunglasses or goggles and shoes in order to take part in the event. We don’t recommend using contact lenses at the event. All Rushers are also encouraged to wear light coloured clothing as the colour powder shows best on light colors. We do include a free Color Obstacle Rush T-Shirt in the participant package, which most of our Rushers wear for the event. You will not be permitted to compete in the event if you are wearing any clothing or other items with sharp edges which might cause injury to other participants or damage the inflatable obstacles that are located along the course.

Please note that the course includes obstacles where you slide and crawl, so wearing long pants is a good idea.

3. Directions

WOLVERHAMPTON RACECOURSE
Gorsebrook Rd
​Wolverhampton WV6 0PE

We recommend you to bring a change of clothes, some towels or large plastic bag with you to prevent your car or public transport from getting coloured.

There is a £5 parking fee (per car) which will be charged upon arriving at the parking lot. Cash only please. To avoid queues, kindly make sure that you bring exact change with you.​

BY RAIL
There are frequent train services to and from major towns and cities at Wolverhampton Railway Station, located less than 2 miles from the racecourse. There are also regular direct trains and metro service to/from Birmingham City Centre.

BY BUS
See the bus schedule here: http://www.networkwestmidlands.com 
Buses regularly operate in and out of the Wolverhampton Bus station down in close proximity to the racecourse with a short 10 minute walk from the bus stop down to the course.

BY CAR
Conveniently located in The City of Wolverhampton, off the A449 (Stafford Road) dual carriageway. Follow the brown tourist signs to Wolverhampton Racecourse (identified by the horse and jockey image).
From north: Exit Junction 11 of the M6 and join the A460 towards Wolverhampton. Join the M54 at J1 Westbound. Exit at J2 and follow the A449 towards Wolverhampton.
From south: Exit junction 10a of the M6 joining M54 to junction 2. Follow A449 towards Wolverhampton.

4. Cloakroom / where to keep your stuff

You will be able to leave clothing in our controlled cloakroom. The cloakroom will cost £1 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 ensure that you have the correct change with you. Cash only.

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 to a clear zipped bag in order to help to protect it from the colour, 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.

5. Start waves

The event is separated into start slots of approximately 500 Rushers 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 announcer and the starter as they guide you to the start gate.

Remember that the event is not a competition and the most important thing is to have fun, and 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!

6. Obstacles and colour

There will be approximately 20 different obstacles along the route which is around 5 kilometres (approx. 3 miles) 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 also 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. Photos are allowed in between the obstacles and of course in the festival area!

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!

There are 8 colouring points on the route. The colour is 100 % natural corn starch that’s been dyed with food/cosmetic colours. The powder is specifically manufactured for these kind of events. We use only fire retardant colour powder in all of the Color Obstacle Rush events. However, it may cause allergic reactions to those whom are allergic to dust and may cause also asthma attacks. If you are highly allergic or sensitive to dust or have asthma, then you should wear a dust mask at the colouring zones and finish festival. You should wear your sunglasses at each colour point.

7. 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 to consult your doctor before entering the Color Obstacle Rush. Although our mission is to make the race as safe as possible to every participant, there is always the possibility of unforeseeable incidents (such as falling or bumping into another person).

8. Finish and Colour Festivals

You will get your colour packet at the finish line.
Then it is time for Colour Festivals! Follow the directions from our DJ, be safe and have fun! You are welcome to stay for more than one Colour Festival. Having your own colour packet is not necessary but if you want you can buy more at our info/store.

9. What if it rains?

Then we’ll be having fun in the rain! As long as there is no extreme storm in sight the event will take place – stay tuned with updates by following the event’s Facebook page:
​​
https://www.facebook.com/events/2112612272095944/
The rain may make the race a little bit slower in general so you might need to wait a little bit longer to get to the obstacles. Please notice that in case of heavy wind we have to reserve the right to remove certain obstacles for security reasons.

10. Audience

Spectators can gain entry to the Color Obstacle Rush free of charge. Since the car parking space is limited we unfortunately can’t recommend bringing whole lot of entourage with you. Please note that spectators do not have access to our festival area and/or are not permitted to access every part of the course.

Little children must be accompanied by a guardian at all times. Children are not allowed to play on the course because of safety reasons!

11. Food, drink, merchandise

There will be one water station located in the festival area. You can bring your own drinks too (but no glass bottles please) but it will be quite hard to tackle some of the obstacles with a water bottle in your hand!
Sunglasses, bandanas, sweatbands, extra colour bags, face paint, tattoos  silicon bracelets, gymsacks and women’s sport tops will be on sale at the festival area. Only cash will be accepted.

12. Alcohol and smoking

Alcohol is not permitted at the event. Smoking is also forbidden.

13. Photography

We love photos too! That is why professional photographers will be stationed along the course to capture the Rush.

The photos will be posted on the Color Obstacle Rush Facebook page few days after each event. We will also use the photos in our advertisements in the future.

Unfortunately, they are not able to capture everyone, and so if you want to take your own photos you can put your mobile phone or camera in a clear zipped bag and take plenty of your own photos along the way. It can be difficult to navigate some of the inflatable obstacles with a cell phone or camera in your hand, so if you are bringing your own device along be sure to have a secure place to store it. Please note that there will be color powder, foam and water splashes during the course.

You can take your action camera (like GoPro) with you, but please notice that selfie sticks are not allowed for safety reasons! If you would like to use for example a chest harness for your action camera, please make sure that the harness is safe and the clips will open if the harness gets caught on an obstacle.

As part of the waiver you will be required to give your specific and irrevocable consent to your participation in the event being filmed or recorded and used by Color Obstacle Rush and its commercial partners for the purpose of advertising, publicity and otherwise in relation to the exploitation and promotion of the event and any connected commercial rights. You will have to sign the waiver in order to participate in the event.

15. How do I clean up after the run?

We do our best to ensure that all of the ingredients that are used in the coloured powder are of the highest quality but they might still cause an allergic reaction for some people who have asthma, allergies or are sensitive to dust.

We, therefore, require that participants wear appropriate protective gear such as goggles or sunglasses and strongly recommend that bandanas and face masks should be worn to protect the eyes and face from exposure to the coloured powder during the event.

If you want to protect your hair, applying conditioner or olive oil to your hair before the event will help in cleaning up process afterwards! You can, of course, also cover up your hair during the event with a bandana, beanie or space helmet if you wish.

After you have finished the event, please try to shake or blow as much of the excess coloured powder as possible off you before entering the shower.

After one shower some of the colour still might show a little but don’t worry: after couple of washes you should be as clean as brand new! It’s best to wash all your clothes separately in cold water.

Please note, there are NO showers at the venue. In fine weather it is quite easy to shake the colour off the clothes, but in damp weather we recommend you to bring change of clothes or some towels or large plastic bag with you to prevent your car or public transport from getting coloured. It’s possible that buses and trains won’t allow onboard passengers who don’t have clean clothes or something to cover the seats.

16. What if I can’t join the event?

Sorry to hear that! If you can’t attend the event due to illness, you can transfer your participation to another Color Obstacle Rush event (organised within 12 months) free of charge by sending us a medical certificate.
If you don’t have a medical certificate you are still able to transfer your participation to other Color Obstacle Rush event (organised within 12 months), but there will be a £10 transfer fee per person.

Please note that the transfer form is only for changing the event location: you can change the name of the participant free of charge. You can do it in your own Rusher profile. Link to your own Rusher profile has been sent via email upon your registration. To transfer your registration to another person in Rusher profile, just change the details of the participant in the profile. Remember to save changes and download a ticket for the new participant!
