$20 for a Color Me Rad 5K Run on Saturday, June 1 (Up to $40 Value)

Adorned in white T-shirts, runners convene at Clark County Event Center Fairgrounds on Saturday, June 1, for the Color Me Rad 5K race. Racers can run headlong toward newly vibrant exteriors in waves leaving every five minutes starting at 9 a.m. Proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Color Me Rad

Color Me Rad stages 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch. Each color station along the racetrack flings a new, nontoxic 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, sunglasses, sponsor gifts, and a race bib. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners younger than 8 years old 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.
