How Much Colored Cornstarch Powder Should I Order for a 5K Event?

For 5Ks with 4-6 color stations along the route, we recommend 1/2 to 1 lb per runner, but it really depends on how covered in color you want your participants to be, how many people you will have throwing the color, and how much they are throwing each time. 

A local 5K that we helped out with, Color Me Chattanooga, only used 1/2 lb per person and they were covered in color, but we have had others say they used 1 lb.
