If you're allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you'd probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k.
But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash, Color Me Rad Richmond is the run for you.
By intelligent design or evolution, man was meant to run for one thing and one thing only: to stay alive. Pamplona was the first real race organized for what running should be: running from stuff that's going to kill, gore, or maim you.
Luckily, we've evolved to where we only hunt for attractive potential mates, we only gather for extreme couponing, and we only run to benefit charities and our cardiovascular system.
Color Me Rad Richmond takes place at Markel Fields at West Creek on July 21 and benefits Special Olympics Virginia. Enter the registration code "specialolympics" and 20% of your race fee will benefit 10,000 athletes across the state who have intellectual disabilities. And help us to raise even more money for Special Olympics by creating your own personal fundraising page HERE.
The color starts flying at 9 am with waves of runners getting plastered with paint every 5 minutes after. You'll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong...but the Art of Running will make you feel oh so right.
Just like at Christmas and birthdays, 'tis better to give than receive...right? I know that's a hard one toswallow for 8 year olds, but in this case, it might be true. If you want to pummel your friends and family with color rather than be pummeled, sign up HERE to volunteer and join the COLOR BOMB SQUAD.
So quit lollygagging and join us for the Most Colorful 5K You'll Ever Run at Color Me Rad Richmond.
