Color Me Rad 5k Race

If you're allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you'd probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k.

But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash,
Color Me Rad Hartford is the run for you.

By intelligent design or evolution, man was meant to run for one thing and one thing only: to stay alive. Pamplona was the first real race organized for what running should be: running from stuff that's going to kill, gore, or maim you.

Luckily, we've evolved to where we only hunt for attractive potential mates, we only gather for extreme couponing, and we only run to benefit charities and our cardiovascular system.

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.

I have signed up for the 9:30am heat with a group named Team GT, team leader's last name is Lazarus.  Let's get fit and get dirty at the same time!  Early Bird registration for $35 until January 25th, $40 after that.  Register here:

    Not sure where to meet. But I'm wearing braided pigtails, white bandana on my head, white shirt, black shorts, pink knee high socks, pink sunglasses, and pink shoes.

    so I'm not running, but I'm going to walk and I'll be there. A friend of mine had a coworker that could no longer go, so I got his spot.

      It's a 5k where people throw colored corn starch at you at various points. Unfortunately it is now sold out. It's a popular race and sells out quickly
