You may pick up packets for friends and family members ONLY if you have a copy of their driver's license. Picking up packets for children under 18: Please have a written consent stating that you are allowed to do so.

Why pick up your packet early? Picking your packet up early allows you to avoid waiting in line the morning of the race. Lines can get extremely long and wait times can be extended to 30 minutes at times. We STRONGLY ENCOURAGE PRE-PACKET PICKUP!!!

Again, you will be able to register at pre-packet pickup. Keep in mind that the price will have increased.

DAY OF PACKET PICKUP: Saturday, September 16th will be the last chance to pick up your packet or register. Morning pickup and registration will begin as early as 7am and end at 9:30am. NO EXCEPTIONS.

WHAT DOES YOUR PACKET CONTAIN? Each registration packet contains a white STEPScenla Color Run T-Shirt, a string tote bag, a color packet, and a few extra surprises. Your registration cost also gets donated to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital!

WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT? Opening ceremonies start at 8am race day with a pre-race party and Jam Stretch by Bodies by Amy.

Participants will line up at 9am in the runners shoot and holding pits. Competitive Runners will leave out first. (STEPSCenla does not time runners, but we do award first, second, and third place medals). Hero teams will leave out next in waves of 2017-2016-2015. General Public will follow.

Waves are set to leave every 5-10 minutes to guarantee that volunteers will have plenty of time to restock their supplies so that your experience will be unforgettable!!!

Your 5k course will contain 7 color stops on route, each followed with a water/safety stop. Entering each color stop be prepared to get doused with color powder from head to toe! (To avoid color powder simply hold your arms in an X formation in front of your face.) Get tired, simply have a seat at your water/safety stop where we have wonderful volunteer nurses to assist you.

End your race with a 40 yard dash to the finish line HIPPITY-HOP RACE!!! (Hippity-hop balls can be purchased on route for $25.) Cross the finish line hopping, running, rolling, crawling.... We are just glad you made it to the FINISH LINE BLOCK PARTY!!!

The Finish Line Block Party starts as soon as you arrive. Color explosions are scheduled to be set off every 15 minutes. Q93's Morning Crew, SHY AND CATHY, will be your DJ! Vendors, Sponsors, and Heroes will be scattered around the main gathering area. Expect to dance, hula-hoop, and much more!!!!

THE BIG IDEA...... COME CLEAN. LEAVE DIRTY. HAVE FUN. MAKE MEMORIES. STRIVE TO ENSURE PEDIATRIC SURVIVAL!!!!

CLEAN UP IDEAS: Bring a towel or garbage bag to cover your car seats. Colored Hair Prevention...leave conditioner in your hair without rinsing or wear a hat. The color powder is safe and edible, although we do not suggest to eat it! LOL!!! It is simply colored corn starch. Have allergies? Wear a face mask or walk behind the volunteers at each color stop, and stay in our safe zones at the block party.
