Color Me Rad may sound like your favorite boy band from the 90’s, but it’s actually one of the hottest, most fun 5K runs you will lace up your sneakers for! This run has been very successful raising money for charities across the country and has gained media attention in each city it has been held, bringing people together to run in support of a great cause: the Special Olympics.
“The Special Olympics of Northern California is a free year-round sports training and competition program for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. More than 15,700 athletes compete in 154 competitions throughout the region in 12 sports. This requires the extraordinary support and time of 14,370 volunteers and volunteer coaches. Financial support comes almost exclusively from individuals, organizations, corporations, and foundations. For more information on Special Olympics Northern California,click here.
Sacramento is proud to host this colorful run on May 27th at the Sacramento Raceway (5305 Excelsior Rd). If you are wondering what exactly is the Color Me Rad…think of a preschool classroom gone crazy!!! Every five minutes runners are showered with nontoxic colorbombs! The Color Bombs start flying at 9 am with waves of runners getting plastered with color every 5 minutes after. You’ll end up with colorful paint from head to toe… running for a great cause- how cool is that??
Registration is now open and children 7 & under are FREE with paying adult.
So what are you waiting for? I know everyone made resolutions to “get back into shape”, “give back to the community” and more. Why not do both and sign up for this fun run.. get your kids out there running with you- I guarantee they will have a blast being “bombed” by the colors!
