Color Me Rad 5k Free Race Entries!

I remember the first year that the Color Me Rad 5k came to my neck of the woods in St. George Utah. I looked at all my friend's Facebook pictures and it looked like everyone was running through multi-colored fireworks.

I thought to myself "Self......people are really paying money to run through explosions of colored corn starch?" But when I looked into Color Me Rad even more, I realized that the race stands for exactly what I believe about running: that running should be fun. Like seriously fun. It's not always about obsessing over a time on your Garmin.

What I admired most about the race was that it drew so many people to running for the first time. I had so many friends and family members who chose this as their first race ever because of the fun environment. Heck, after that race you could close your eyes, throw a Twinkie (although I don't recommend wasting them like that) and hit someone wearing a Color Me Rad shirt. I love how the race opened running up to so many people. (Plus they make a huge charity donation as well.)

The race is coming up again in St. George on September 28th. This is your opportunity to sneeze rainbows for a week! You can visit their website HERE to get more information and to register. Also, the super awesome folks at CMR have donated two free race entries to give away right here. Boom! All you have to do is leave a comment here saying you're interested. A winner will be drawn using random.org on Tuesday September 3rd to get the pair of tickets. Good luck!

  9. I used to think these color runs were ridiculous until I ran a 10k in Ephraim this summer. Organizers decided to turn the small town race into a color run. I skipped the first color station thinking i was too good for it, but by the time I got to the finish line I changed my tune. I joyfully ran through the final color station feeling a little regret I hadn't gotten more colorfied

  10. Until I saw my son and niece crossing the 5k finish line fully colorfied with huge smiles across their faces. In think it might be fun to do another with another one of my children.
