Local runners are gearing up for the most “rad”iculous running event of the year as Color Me Rad 5K returns on July 26 to Christie Lake Conservation Area.
Participants in the five-kilometre event aren’t trying to get their best time; they’re trying to have their best time. Color Me Rad is all about encouraging the fun side of fitness.
The non-competitive, family-friendly atmosphere makes the race accessible to all, and children seven years of age and under run free with an adult. Runners start the race with a sparkling white T-shirt. By the time they cross the finish line, they’ll look like a kindergarten art project gone wrong.
A portion of the proceeds of the race will benefit the Hamilton Conservation Foundation. Register at colormerad.com.
