Running a race requires the proper attire: ankle-supporting shoes, a sweat-wicking shirt, and loose-fitting pants to conceal the mini jet packs strapped to your ankles. Get your adrenaline soaring with this Groupon.

Park admission is included with run registration, which also includes free parking. After the race, participants can be among the first that day to experience the new Banshee roller coaster—a thriller that sends riders screaming through seven inversions at speeds up to 68 mph. The race begins at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 17. Park admission is required for all participants ages 3 and up.
Color Me Rad
Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2017 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and a whole new 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, 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 run for free.
