Color Me Rad Race

You don’t have to be a runner to enjoy a Color Me Rad 5K race. Color Me Rad is a great fun run to enjoy with friends and family. Last year I ran the race with a few of my friends.

Here is a little more from the Color Me Rad organizers:

Color Me Rad is coming to a town near you with a tsunami of color that’ll make colored tears of joy run down your cheeks and will renew your will to live. After 5K of color bombardment, we guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your girlfriend will be less needy, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, your black and white TV will turn into 720p HD (I know you were hoping for 1080, but we organize races, we’re not miracle workers), and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning. You’ll start off with a shirt as pure and white as your grandpa’s dentures and you’ll soak up enough color while running to change your skin tone forever.

You’ll wind up looking like a pack of skittles – just make sure not to “taste the rainbow.”

How it works: Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, you’ll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of bluegreen,pinkpurple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippy on the other side. Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter’s palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.

Color Me Rad also has RAD swag that you will actually want to wear again…in public.

  1. I want to do the run because it makes marathons seem like a fun way to start the day! I’ve never run one before and this is the perfect start. I’m already a Facebook fan 🙂

  2. I’ve never done one of these color races and I’m itching to give it a try!!!

  3. I did the Color Me Pink run for breast cancer, and I can say it was an experience like no other. This time around I’d love to take my kids with me!

  4. This has to be the most fun and most popular run I’ve been hearing about. I have only been running since March and I’m trying to enter as many races as I can to reach some personal goals. Color Me Rad is one I couldn’t sign up for because we can’t afford another race entry. I’d love to get an entry though!

  5. I want to run in it with my son! He’d love this! I hope the giveaway is open nationally. I would want to run in the Raleigh, NC race.
