We at the Color Obstacle Rush want to pay extra attention to your safety at our
When you arrive at the parking lot, please follow the signage and the directions given by our staff.
It is okay if participants aged under 16 years on the date of the event don’t have a valid ID, as long as their parent, legal guardian, or a responsible adult who accompanies the participant has one.
After the corona pass check, please follow the check-in queue remembering about keeping a safe distance.
Please ensure that you remember to bring with you a valid photographic ID, a valid
order confirmation, and corona pass or other valid documentation + hand sanitizer and face covering.
Please note that you don’t have to print your order confirmation, you can also show it from your phone.
Please note that we may not be able to answer any questions during the event weekend.
Please note there will be no tickets available for sale on the event day. You can purchase the tickets exclusively online until last Thursday before the event (July 1st).
2. Check-in and store
At the check-in, you will be asked to show us your ticket or order confirmation. We will need the order confirmation especially if you have ordered any additional items such as swag bags, face paints, tutus, etc.
To speed up the check-in, please prepare your ticket or order confirmation in advance.
You will receive your T-shirt and wristband as well as any possible additional items.
We do not ask about your T-shirt size upon ticket purchase. We kindly ask you to decide in advance which T-shirt you would like to receive at the check-in (they are standard unisex, range S-XL). If you feel you are somewhere between two sizes, take the larger one: it will be more comfortable! Unfortunately, as a safety measure, we do not allow exchanges.
The wristband is your entry ticket to the event. You may receive different kinds of wristbands within your team, but the color isn’t important anymore, it’s just supposed to look cool!
After the check-in, you will also have an opportunity to buy some merchandise at our store. Please note that we do not accept card or mobile payments. PAYMENT BY CASH ONLY.
Please note that there will be one-way at the event, which means you will not have access to the check-in area and the store once you have passed them.
And one more thing: you’ll receive your personal medal and color packet as soon as you cross the finish line!
3. Warm-up and start
Before every start group there will be a warm-up to get you prepared for the run. Like everything at Color Obstacle Rush, the warm-up is about having fun, too! Get ready to dance and stretch with us!
The event is separated into start groups of approximately 500 participants 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! 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!
4. How to get to the event?
The event will take place at:
Charlottenlund Racetrack (Charlottenlund Travbane)
BY TRAIN / BY BUS
The C-train runs every 20 minutes, after which you have to walk another 1.2 km to the venue. You can also come to a walking distance of the venue by bus.
There are plenty of free parking spaces at the venue. Please note there is a parking payment of 40 DKK (cash only).
5. Where to keep your stuff?
You will be able to leave clothing in our controlled cloakroom. The cloakroom will cost 20 DKK per participant and you will also be charged 20 DKK for each visit (apart from when you pick up your belongings to leave of course). Please note that we take payments by 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.
Please note that there are NO showers at the venue. In fine weather, it is quite easy to shake the color off the clothes, but in damp weather we recommend you to bring a change of clothes, some towels or a large plastic bag with you to prevent your car or public transport from getting colored. It’s possible that buses and trains won’t allow onboard passengers who don’t have clean clothes or something to cover the seats.
If you are bringing a change of clothes, we kindly ask you to leave your things in the car and change in the parking lot after the event.
6. Obstacles and color
It might take a few minutes before you can hit the obstacles so please be patient. Please follow the instructions given by the staff and the starter as they guide you to the start gate.
Please note that a face covering is recommended to use at the obstacles but not on the track.
There will be approximately 20 different obstacles along the route, which is around 5 kilometers 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 always 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.
It takes approximately 45–90 minutes to complete the course. Remember that the event is not a competition and the most important thing is to have fun – if you prefer not to run, jogging or walking around the course are also 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 everyone regardless of their running pace!
There are 6 coloring points on the route. The color is 100 % natural corn starch that’s been dyed with food/cosmetic colors. The powder is specifically manufactured for these kinds of events. We use only fire retardant color powder in all of the Color Obstacle Rush events. However, it may cause allergic reactions to those allergic to dust and may also cause asthma attacks.
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!
You should wear sunglasses at each color 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 consult your
doctor before entering the Color Obstacle Rush. Although our mission is to make the race as safe as possible for 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 Color Festivals! Follow the directions from our DJ, be safe and have fun! You are welcome to stay for more than one Color Festival. Having your own colour packet is not necessary but if you want you can buy more at our info/store.
Have fun and don’t forget your medal at the finish line! We kindly ask you to not drop on the ground anything else than the color powder!
Please do not linger after the event. All participants will be asked to move forward after the color festival. We understand that you may want to wait for your friends or just relax and contemplate your achievement but sadly, we have to ask you to go directly to your car so we can avoid a crowd forming at the finish line.
9. Photos and social media
Our photographer will come to capture your fun among the obstacles. All the photos will be posted on our Facebook page a week after the event.
If you share your own beautiful pictures on social media, please use the hashtag #colorobstaclerush and tag us, so we can find them, too! 🙂 And to get some extra color in your life, please follow us on:
Facebook: Color Obstacle Rush
Unfortunately, for safety reasons, we can allow NO audience to the event. We ask any family members, friends, and cheerleaders of the participants to kindly wait in the car
11. Food, drink, merchandise
Unfortunately, there will be no catering at the event.
There will be two water stations located in the event area. You can also bring your own water bottle (as long as the bottles are not made of glass) but please note that it may be quite hard to tackle some of the obstacles with a water bottle in your hand!
Sunglasses, bandanas, sweatbands, extra color bags, face paint, tattoos, silicone bracelets, gym sacks, and women’s sport tops will be on sale at the festival area. Please note we only take payments in cash.
Please note that it will not be possible to return to the store after having passed it at the beginning of the event. Plan your shopping wisely!

Please note that alcohol is not permitted at the event. Smoking is also forbidden.
