Back by popular demand, the Color Me Rad 5K, a nationally recognized human tie-dye spectacle and run/walk, is returning to Darien Lake for a third year. The park expects more than 6,000 color-plastered racers to attend this year’s fun-run.
It will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 6. Participants with early bird registration (until May 8) pay $35 plus a $9.27 service fee. On-site registration is $45 plus a $9.81 service fee. A Kid's Rad Pack is $15 plus a $4.19 service fee. All participants get free admission to the park on race day. Parking is free.
Proceeds from the run will go to Special Olympics of New York, Camp Good Days and Special Times, and Erie County Council for the Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse. There are several new additions to the race this year, including:
DOUBLE THE COLOR STATIONS -- It’s the same 3.1-mile fun run with twice as many color stations. That means every half a mile our volunteer Color Bomb Squads will cover you from head to toe in pink, yellow, green, blue, and violet.
NEW GEL COLOR STATIONS -- Meet the newest member of the family that will RAD you from head to toe, with a cooling sensation and full coverage of spectacular colors.
FREE PHOTOS -- This year, every RAD participant will have access to free photos from our professional action sports photographers so you can brag about your RAD experience without spending a dime.
We’ve stepped up our game this year – offering every participant our best T-shirts yet and a famous RAD tattoo, but you’ll also receive a pair of killer knee-high socks for free!
Registration for the run/walk is now open at www.Colormerad.com
