Color Me Rad in Billings, Montana!

Don’t let fall bring you down! If you’re staying in hotels in Billings MT this October, there’s an event to cheer ever the gloomiest up. It’s the Color Me RadColor Me Rad 5K race: running with a tsunami of color that guarantees a great time. That’s right, Color Me Rad is coming to Billings, Montana on October 27 to shower the city with some color!

You’ll start out clean, with a white shirt and throughout the run you’ll be bombarded with Color Bombs of blue, green, pink, purple and yellow until you look like a pack of Skittles!  Each section of the run adds a new color to your skin until you are declared a tie-dyed hippie at the end. The paint is a non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch subsidized by the government and processed in the USA. Don’t participate if you happen to be allergic to cornstarch!

Everyone is allowed to participate in Color Me Rad, regardless of age or ability! Those under 18 must bring a parent or guardian waiver to packet pick-up or race day. Those 7 and under run for free! Regular Registration is now $45 until September 21 and $50 until October 24 or until sell out.

Registration benefits the Billings Family YMCA. The Billings Family YMCA is one of the largest providers in youth programming in the Yellowstone County of Montana. It provides families with affordable exercise and fitness options for children that stress honesty, caring, respect and responsibility.   They work with elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, home school programs, hospitals, churches, sport organizations and many others. Their goal is to provide quality programs which enhance the mind, body and spirit of the community with a special emphasis on youth.

Sign up today for a day of fun for a great cause!
