$20 for 5K-Race Entry on Saturday, April 27 (Up to $40 Value)

Adorned in white T-shirts, runners convene at Missouri State University on Saturday, April 27 for the Color Me Rad 5K race. Racers can run headlong toward newly vibrant exteriors in waves starting at 9 a.m. Proceeds benefit Ozarks Public Television's K is for Kids initiative.

Color Me Rad

Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2015 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and a whole new GEL color. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new pigment at passersby, who wear white shirts to enhance the chromatic onslaught's costuming effects. Brilliant neon-blue, green, purple, and yellow clouds dapple participants along the way, and the race concludes with a prismatic finish-line finale as sprinters chuck colors at each other in celebration. The race's noncompetitive credo shifts the emphasis from speed to silliness, and a portion of its proceeds go to local charities.

Upon registration, each runner collects a Color Me Rad T-shirt and a pair of RAD knee-high socks, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Also, new for 2015, all runners will receive access to free professional digital photo downloads. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners who are 7 years old and younger can sprint for free, provided they have a waiver signed by a guardian and won't give in to demands for gold from confused leprechauns.
