If the 5k races you've been running haven't been colorful enough -- or just not enough like a rave -- you're in luck: the "Color Me Rad" 5k will be at the Altamont Fairgrounds September 22.
Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, you'll coat your chaffing thighs with blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippy on the other side. ...
Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter's palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.
And then there's apparently more coloring at the end of the race, with food and music. The color is "non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch." Here are a bunch of photos from previous races.
The entrance fee is $50 until September 19. For what it's worth, the website says many of the previous races this year have sold out (one of the start times in Altamont is already sold out).
