anyone painted at a 1k/5k RACE before? need advice...

Post by BarbieSmith on Wed Sep 15, 2010 8:42 pm

The race is a charity event, and will be in the morning. I will begin painting at 8 am (here in PA) and the 1k race will be at 9am - most the of the kids will be in this race. Are they going to sweat off the paint?

Also, if adults get painted for the 5k... I am assuming they will DEFINITELY sweat the paint off, eh?

Thanks, Barbie

Last month I painted a kids triathlon, they had me set up at the end of the course and the kids came to get painted after they were done with their events. I got lots of siblings too.

I think if you paint on cheeks and arms (no foreheads) before events, as long as they don't rub the designs they should stay pretty well.

Let us know how things go!

They are probably going to sweat off the paint, but while it lasts I am sure that they will love it. There will probably also be a lot of younger siblings cheering at the sidelines who would love to be painted. I think that you will do fine, just take a lot of baby wipes.

I would do glitter tattoos. They DONT sweat off. If its for a cause, you can free hand a ribbon instead of using a stencil to save cost. Smile

Oh thank you for the input everyone! I will start beforehand, but make it clear that those who will be sweating should wait until after to get painted! And yes, glitter tattoos are a GREAT idea!!! Thanks so much!
