I have a 90’s child in my family that is going to be excited to hear that we are participating in the Color Me Rad 5k in Lancaster, CA on April 23.
Athletes and non-athletes alike are pulling out their white t-shirts in anticipation of this year’s Color Me Rad. On April 23, racers will become multi-colored masterpieces as they join hundreds of other color revelers in the “raddest” 5K around. This year, participants will Dare to Be RAD, tackling challenges throughout the course in an array of 90’s inspired color. Pricing increases on March 4, sign up now at https://secure.colormerad.com/affiliate/USFamilyGuide/event/lancasterca to take advantage of current pricing.
WE ARE YOUR EXCUSE TO LET LOOSE
Color Me Rad is loosely based on the Hindu Festival of Colors, otherwise known as Holi. The festive colors used are a sign of winter’s end and spring’s new beginnings. Or in the case of RAD; the color represents the end of lame runs and the beginning of fun runs.
Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, our volunteers will coat you with liquids, powders, and gels of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippie on the other side. Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter’s palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.
The Finish Line – This is the royal rumble of color. Every 15 – 20 minutes, participants grab their color powder and create a revival of the RAD sorts. There will be music, food, and more RAD runners than the 80s. Hugs are free and just like any good AA meeting, spectators are welcome.
This is right up my family’s alley. We love to participate in races. This will be our first time participating in a Color Me Rad 5k, but I am sure it is going to be a blast! Wait, we have to get our costumes together. We love to wear costumes to races like this. I am so excited!
