During the race runners are bombarded with a rainbow of colors (colored corn starch) at various color stations along the running route. According to their website, the race “runners getting plastered with paint every 5 minutes. You’ll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong…” You can view the course map and color station locations here.

    I like to run because although I am still not a runner I CAN run.. I have lost 60 pounds now want to RUN.. I would never even try doing a 5k in the past. I want to bring my family and experience this together.

  3. I like to run because Raleigh / Durham is an incredible place to enjoy the outdoors. I moved here a few months ago for the trees and beautiful weather, and your twitter feed has helped me explore new things to do in the neighborhood. I am also a high school teacher so I reflect on my kids and my classroom on my daily run. 😀 Thanks Triangle Explorer

  4. Choose me and I will run with my spunky 7 yr old daughter!

    Love to run because I get to be outside, it lets me rest my mind after a long day of work, or start the day energized and focused. Love how great I feel after every run.

  6. I would love to run this crazy race, it is an expensive race so doing it for free would be awesome!

  7. Wendy Hawley

    When I run it helps motivate my kids to be active. They often join me or ride their bikes beside me!

  8. BeckyT

    I would love to win this as it would be my first 5k – what a fun way to do my first run!

  9. I’m learning to love running. I’ve been thinking of maybe the Color Me Rad run being my first 5k!

    My daughter volunteers for the Special Olympics and I have recently began running specifically for this event!! Bringing along my running buddies too!! Can’t wait!

  11. Alison

    I run to clear my head – nothing like a good run outside to make you feel better!

  12. I showed this post to my sons and they were really excited about the idea of running in this race. They love the idea of getting plastered with paint. Looks like a lot of fun!

    I like to run because it allows me to escape the monotony of my everyday routine! Plus all of the endorphins are awesome!! Color ME Rad!!!

  14. I would love to win tickets to this race. I was re-acquainted with a high school friend who, remarkably, is in Raleigh- we are from Ohio. She was homeless but has recently found a shelter to live in temporarily.Her home has a treadmill and she can run 2 miles. She has expressed a desire to run this race. Her shelter has a treadmill and she can run 2 miles. With your help, we could give her motivation to keep going and an experience that she would truly treasure.

  15. My coworkers and I were just talking about wanting to “run” together! I think any event that you can do together that betters your health is great.

  16. Nicole Johnson

    My 11yr old & 5 yr old girls are just getting into running. This would be great mother daughter time and awesome motivation for her 1ST official race!

  17. I’ve been training for a 5K and this would be a great one to enter.

  18. I just started Couch to 5k again after an injury, so I want to have something to work towards. This looks like fun!
