COLOR ME RAD, Oklahoma City, May 11

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Although this is called a "Run" or a "Race" it is NOT Timed, and EVERYONE is Welcome to participate whether you Walk, Run, Jog, or Stroll. Many Familys with small children participate and are able to just enjoy the day!!

I didn't find any Pictures, but a lot of people "Dress Up" for this Race. There were a Lot of Men In Tutus and many Kids in different costumes last year. At different spots along the Track Volunteers pelt you with Colored Cornstarch. It DOES Stain Your Skin and Clothes, and I am glad that someone warned me Last Year to take something with me to protect the Car Seats after the Race.

If they have one of these Races near you, I recommend that you Go For It. Yes, you will end up looking like "A Kindergarten Art Class Gone Bad", but it will be the Most Fun you have had at a Race in a long time, if ever!!
I think this is a shot near the Start Line of one of the Races. Hard to describe the Clouds Of Color that you run through doing this!

    How fun! I see from your map there is one near us. I am doing my first 5K in about 3 weeks. Maybe this one will be next. I can't wait to see pics!

    Just a quick warning based on my sister and brother-in-law's feedback - cover your mouth when you get near the colors stations! Apparently, they ended up with mouthfuls of the cornstarch and didn't enjoy that! LOL

I wish there was one in Denver. There was last year, but I didn't hear about it until it had already passed! And I don't see one listed this year. Bummer!

Hope you have a great time!!

    Looks like so much fun. I wanted to do this this year. We are doing one called the Neon Run where it's at night and they spray the color on you, mixed in water. It sounds like an easier clean up. Lol can't wait. That's so cool your sister will be joining you!! Have fun!!
