Color Me Rad coming to Knoxville
Over 5,000 runners are prepping to be hit with a kaleidoscope of color on Saturday, October 6 in Knoxville’s Color Me Rad event. White-clad participants will wind through Chilhowee Park, where they’ll be bombarded with color throughout the course until faces, shirts and bodies crossing the finish line will resemble silkscreened tie-dyed hippies. Finishers will then toss individual bags of color in the air to create a final burst of color in celebration of their accomplishment.
Waves of 500 people will take off every five minutes beginning at 9 a.m. during the event. Participants of all ages are encouraged to sign up and either run or walk the course, as Color Me Rad is not a timed event.
A portion of the proceeds from the race goes to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Participants should use promo code CHILDREN10 when signing up to save 10% and help support Children’s Hospital.
