Color Me Rad: “The most colorful 5K race you’ll ever run”

On Saturday, June 2, Color Me Rad came to Hartford.  This race is as fun as a run can get!  Over 2,000 people attended the race held at Rentschler Field where participants were adorned in all white.  Needless to say, that wouldn’t last long.  The fun part about the race is that you end up looking like a bag of skittles.  Throughout the course, there were “Color Stations” set up, and volunteers are there to throw colored corn starch at you.  Or if you are in Jeff Roux’s group, he did the honor of coloring you himself by overtaking the color station and dousing his friends.  What a fun way to spend a Saturday morning.  If you missed out, head to Boston on July 15 to take part in this non-timed, fun run.  If not, Color Me Rad will be back next year and I highly recommend this fun way to exercise.
