$22 for Color Me Rad 5K Race Entry (Up to $45 Value)

Adorned in white T-shirts, runners convene at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Saturday, September 8, for the Color Me Rad 5K race. Racers kick off toward newly vibrant exteriors starting at 9 a.m., with waves following every five minutes. A portion of the proceeds from the race benefits Special Olympics Indiana.

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.


Color Me Rad's rates fluctuate depending on registration date.

SO fun!!! Very low key 5K, went by so fast with all the activities of the color being thrown about every half mile. Very fun. Hope they do a deal for the run next year.
