Can I Use the Colored Powder Again?

Haven't done this myself, but some of our customers have told us how they made their colored powder last even longer. If you have planned your run along a hard surface like a road, parking lot, or driveway, after a group of runners pass through your color station, sweep the colored powder up and use it again. 

Now, we would recommend adding a step in the middle - sweep the color, quickly run the color through a sifter to remove any debris, then you could use it again. One of the largest well known 5Ks does this and even takes it a step further by taping down a tarp on the road at each color station to make sweeping up the color and clean up easier.

If it's a small party you are planning, it is our experience that the kids will want to play in the color afterwards so even if the color fight is over, they will still have color fun.
