KUSA - Denver runners are gearing up for a lot more color, and even more radness, as they prepare for the return of Color Me Rad 5K on August 17, 2013. As white-clad participants run around Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield they'll be doused with color that tie-dyes their t-shirts at the same time it brightens their outlook on life. In this untimed event, the focus is purely on fun, and the fitness is an added bonus.
After completing the 3.1-mile course, runners will declare themselves rad as they toss their own bags of color into the air; creating a display so colorful it makes the Fourth of July jealous.
A portion of the proceeds of the race goes to The YMCA of Metropolitan Denver. "We have worked with great charities across the country, and there is nothing more rad than knowing all of this colorful mayhem is also for a good cause," Crandall said.
