Looking for a new profile pic? Six Flags is having a color run Sunday

Maybe you missed out on a summer of new profile pictures because you weren’t running enough. (On an unrelated note, you can read about people projecting in this psychology paper.)

If you did miss out on those beach pics, the also-not-bitter Atlanta Journal-Constitution has a solution.

Six Flags Over Georgia is hosting a Color Run on Sunday.

It’s an untimed 5K “race” during which participants (children can run, too) get non-toxic powdered coloring thrown at them. At the “Finish Festival,” the crowd will throw colors every 15 minutes to welcome new runners coming in.

Organizers said it’s “less about your 10-minute-mile and more about having the time of your life.”

After the race, according to a brief scan of social media, people try to look as cute as possible.

On the safety of the powder, The Color Run’s FAQ says “our bright colors are a combination of cornstarch, baking soda, and” safe dyes. And they are supposed to mostly wash out of clothes.

Registration starts at $30. The race is from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. at the Austell theme park, 275 Riverside Parkway SW. Parking is free, but you have to be there by 7:30 a.m.

You can check out a guide to the event here.
