For those who don’t mind getting a little messy during their workout, the Color Me Rad 5K race event will paint a rainbow of color through the streets of Downtown on Aug. 11.

About 5,000 pounds of colored cornstarch will fly through the air, turning runners into works of art as they make their way through the last half of the course. This untimed event has less emphasis on competition and much more focus on fun.

“Every Color Me Rad race has a fun, party atmosphere, with music throughout the entire course,” said Gretchen Willard, director of public relations. “This is the race you’ll remember with fondness instead of soreness,” she said.
