Get ready to run! Color Me Rad Raleigh returns to the Triangle this fall on Saturday October 26th at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion in Raleigh. Runners of all abilities are welcome at this 5K. Whether you are a seasoned runner or just looking for a fun way to experience your first 5K racewith friends and family (children 7 and under can race for free) this race is sure to be a lot of fun all while helping a great cause with a portion of the proceeds from the race benefiting the Special Olympics of NC.
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.
The great people organizing Color Me Rad Raleigh were awesome enough to donate Four Free Registrations for me to give away to lucky Triangle Explorer blog readers! To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below about why you like to run or share this post on twitter (copying me @trianglexplorer & @colormerad5k).
I will randomly select the four lucky winners on Tuesday June 18th and notify them by email with the promo codes. In the meantime, for more information about the Color Me Rad Raleigh 5K race, check out the event website here and follow them on their facebook page and on twitter @colormerad5k for race updates.
