- $29 for entry to the Color Me Rad 5K race on May 15, 2016 ($55 value)
Adorned in white T-shirts, runners convene at Lackawanna County Courthouse on Sunday, May 15 for the Color Me Rad 5K race. Racers run headlong toward the finish line in waves and get pelted by plumes of vibrant paint every few minutes. For even more fun, organizers give out free t-shirts, a RAD temporary tattoo, and a Goo Guard phone case for all participants.
Color Me Rad
Color Me Rad is back and better than ever with its 2016 tour, staging 5K races that transform runners into mobile rainbows by launching cheerful barrages of colored cornstarch and 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, pink, 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. Though they don't receive a gift packet, runners who are 7 years old and younger can run for free, and friends and family are welcome to tag along and cheer from the sidelines.
