Color Me Rad
colr rad

Color Me Rad Raleigh will take place October 262013 at Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Special Olympics North Carolina.

The Color Bombs start 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.

Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, you’ll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of bluegreen,pinkpurple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippy 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.

This is non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch. Subsidized by the government and processed in the good ol’ US of A, these blasts of starch will change your color, and your demeanor, but never your level of wellness.
What Do I Get With My Registration?

You’ll receive the newest and best t-shirt in your closet…(for race day we recommend bringing a different white t-shirt or purchasing one at the Color Me Rad Store), a freaking sweet set of sunglasses, a race bib, a donation to a local charity, and some swag from our sponsors, AND ONE COLOR BOMB RIGHT BEFORE THE FINISH FOR THE FINALE COLOR THROW!

What happens at the Finish Line?

This is the royal rumble of color. Every 15 – 20 minutes everyone will grab their Color Bombs and pummel each other until you’re black and blue (from corn starch – no real bruising will occur). There will be music and other color doused participants welcoming you across the finish line with open arms. Hugs are free and just like any good AA meeting, spectators are welcome.

How do I get the Color out of my Hair?

If you’ve got light colored hair, it helps to use some leave-in conditioner, olive oil or coconut oil beforehand—think Wendy Peffercorn—oiling and lotioning, lotioning and oiling.

Goggles, glasses (aviator or other) to cover your eyes will help.

A bandanna never hurt anyone

After the race, get all the dry powder out of your hair, clothes, teeth, etc. before adding cold water. It’s just dust so bring your favorite French Maid and some lemon pledge.

It might take a few washes to get it out of your hair, but heck, just lather, rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse and repeat.
