To stay consistent, the colors of the team should match the mascot. The coyote has grayish-brown to yellowish-gray pelts, white throats and bellies, reddish-brown forelegs, sides and paws and black tipped tail. Gray, yellow, white, red and black are therefore the club's colors.
The question then becomes, what color is the primary color? The away jersey, if we had one, would be white anyway. Gray is for a practice jersey. Black is good for Ninjas, but not runners who need to be seen. Yellow doesn't do it for me. So I get to "running red" and get a little alliteration.
The red jersey also helps the runner avoid being hit by a mountain biker or car.
