Color Me Rad Returns to the Boston Area Next Month
Hope you like getting dirty, because Color Me Rad is coming back to the Boston area next month.
Loosely based on Holi, a Hindu festival celebrating color, Color Me Rad is a near-guaranteed way to have some fun while you run—and stain your clothes. You’ll be doused with three kinds of color by the end of the 5K: powder, gel, and slime. The addition of slime is new this year, and is perfect for anyone nostalgic for the 2000s classic Slime Time Live.
The Boston-area race will be held at the Brockton Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 30. (There will also be a race in Providence the weekend before.) After your run, stay for an after-party including music, food, and, yes, more color powder. You’ll already be filthy by that point, so why not?
Registration, which can be completed here, is $40, then goes up to $50 on the day before the race and $55 on the day of the 5K. Bring an extra $10 cash per car for parking.
$40, 4/30, 9 a.m. Brockton Fairgrounds, 433 Forest Ave., Brockton, colormerad.com.
