RIT. You can find it near the laundry detergent/cleaners at Walmart, or at craft stores like AC Moore

I sure hope that they don't throw RIT at people, lol.


OP, it is a food grade colored cornstarch. I think The Color Run sells it on their website.

Here is the link to buy from the Color Vibe-

Personally, I would only buy from one of the companies that do the 5K's. Make sure you are not buying it from India. Their formula is NOT safe.
