The best place to meet at the fairgrounds is just to pick an area in relationship to the "arena." It's just a big open area. There are stables and a small grate over a creek. There's also a track that has trolleys and such that use it. Other than that, nothing much around.

Bobby,
I'm sorry, I checked w/ my contacts and they were no help.
I've only been there once myself. I remember a building sort of like a "food court" all the organizations have their booths under roof. That may be a good place to meet. I'm thinking if we all have phone numbers - as we arrive we can track each other.
Are you and Anne coming tomorrow evening?

I'm posting here and on our FB team page. I am really tired and emotional, so please bear with me. I'm still coming Friday afternoon and leaving Saturday afternoon-ish. My cousin is 20 weeks pregnant and is having complications which may not be good for the baby. I was with her this morning. My best friend is having a c-section in about 10 minutes. She is a week past her due date and they induced her last night and things have not progressed.

So I am way behind on my work visiting and worrying about these babies. I have not been able to respond to the messages on here, sorry. Hopefully tomorrow afternoon I will be able to.

If you are going to the race or meeting us for lunch, please bring a cooler with lots of frozen ice packs or ice. I am bringing about 60 blizzards to share with everyone. It's going to be warm, so we will need to keep them as cold as possible. You're gonna love these.
Sorry for the book, I just don't know how to stop talking. Goodnight and sweet dreams.

I am up for lunch anywhere except Mexican. My cell is 216-513-2667, you can call or text whenever.

Oh, look, it's one of their FAQs:

How do I keep the color in my shirt?

Your best bet is to never wash it and let the stink permeate your house for decades. Your second best bet is to soak it in vinegar and then iron it.

Ooooh, I would LOVE to keep the colors in my shirt. Might have to do some research on that one!

just some fyi

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 PACK AFTER YOU FINISH FOR THE FINALE!



For sins: we’d recommend repentance and confession to your priest and/or favorite deity. For color we’d recommend soap, cold water, and perseverance...and another few suggestions:

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.


What should I wear?

White...all WHITE...but off white would be ok.

I am not sure if everyone wants to keep their shirts colored, but a friend did it in Cleveland and said something about spraying vinegar on the shirt afterwards and that'll keep the colors from washing out. I don't know how true that is, but I wills ee what I can find out.

Thanks Bobby & Frances for the info. emoticon

Pressure is on Bobby - Although I'm closer than everyone else - I don't know Washington County but will see what I can find out. I'm even further south in Fayette County!
But I will see what I can do.

For the gamblers that may be in the group - The Meadows isn't too far from what I know! There is also and outlet mall as well.

I'll see what are the close by options for us all to grab a bite to eat - if we are able to clean-up sufficiently. I've never participated in one of these races - do they usually have facilities to clean up?

Hi!

Just wanted to get an idea of who all will be at the Color Me Rad run on Saturday the 25th.

We should try to meet up before and after to get some group pictures. How does that sound? Anyone know the race area to pick a time and place to meet up? I'm pretty clueless so I will leave it up to someone else to figure out.
