2014 Color Me Rad 5K Busan
Busan Asiad Stadium
Color Me Rad is coming to a town near you with a tsunami of color that'll make colored tears of joy run down your cheeks and will renew your will to live.
Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, color cannons, color mortars, and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.
Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, personal responsibility, the truth, and grizzly bears.
Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year's Color Me Rad. Run for the hell of it.
Starting in 2012, Color Me Rad has had well over a hundred races around the US and in 2013, it finally crossed over to the Eastern Hemisphere and into Korea! With the warm reception of the race last year in Seoul, Incheon, and Ilsan, we’re proud to host more races around the country this year.
You’re probably asking yourselves, “Is this really color being thrown at us or are the rainbows we’re seeing just God’s signal that it’ll never flood again?” Well I’m glad you asked. This isn’t just smoke and mirrors. This is non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored cornstarch. Subsidized by the government and processed in the USA, these blasts of starch will change your color, and your demeanor, but never your level of wellness.

We recommend soap, cold water, and perseverance…and another few suggestions：If you’ve got light colored hair, it helps to use some leave-in conditioner, olive oil or coconut oil beforehand—think Wendy Peffercorn—oiling and lotioning, lotioning and oiling. Goggles, glasses (aviator or other) to cover your eyes will help. After the race, get all the dry powder out of your hair, clothes, teeth, etc. before adding cold water. It’s just dust so bring your favorite French Maid and some lemon pledge. It might take a few washes to get it out of your hair, but heck, just lather, rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse and repeat.
I’m sure this is a question you never thought you’d have to ask. Mostly because it doesn’t make much sense, but now that we’ve got you on the FAQ page, you’re going to be questioning everything you ever believed in. Basically you get your whitest, cleanest shirt, tank-top, wife beater or just a thick patch of bleached chest hair and run until you get coated in color so thick, Tide with Bleach will be calling you to star in their next commercial.
Using the same tactics you use protect your “special parts” from the sun and lascivious eyes. Clothing, for starters, works wonders for keeping your skin as soft, supple, and as unseen as a baby’s backside. Goggles, glasses, shirts, shorts, shoes, cooking aprons, hospital gowns, or radiation suits can be worn to protect you from the frequent blasts of color from Color Me Rad, and any stray UV rays from holes in the ozone overhead.
Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, you’ll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of 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.
This is the royal rumble of color. Every 15 – 20 minutes everyone will grab their Color Bombs and pummel each other until you’re black and blue (from corn starch – no real bruising will occur). There will be music and other color doused participants welcoming you across the finish line with open arms. Hugs are free and spectators are welcome.
White... all WHITE... but off white would be ok.
Sorry, sunglass color and T-shirt sizes can not be changed once registration is complete
We’ll have photographers present taking pictures throughout the race as well as at the finish line. If you want to go it alone, we recommend a good buddy trotting along side you, a zip lock bag to keep it safe and color free, and slow shutter speeds.
Just try to finish before the sun goes down. We don’t even own a watch. At the finish line you’ll be rewarded with a sense of accomplishment and an endorphin induced high.
Of course! Just come and have fun!
We will still have the race, rain or shine, but you can stay updated on the race status on our Facebook page and website.

As you pass through this life you’re faced with thousands of choices that shape who you are, what kind of person you’ll become, and how successful you’ll be. These decisions either build or destroy character and can be life changing for you and those around you. Sometimes you’re faced with a decision so important that everything hinges upon you choosing correctly. It’ll brighten your day literally and figuratively; it’ll liven up your Facebook page and give you hours of new conversation and fond memories. That’s our personal guarantee. And let’s be honest, when was the last time you acted like a 12 year old? Unless you are now 13 years old, this was probably a long time ago.
You’ll receive the newest and best t-shirt in your closet…(for race day we recommend bringing a different white t-shirt or purchasing one at the Color Me Rad Store), a freaking sweet set of sunglasses, a race bib, a donation to a local charity, and some swag from our sponsors, AND ONE COLOR BOMB RIGHT BEFORE THE FINISH FOR THE FINAL COLOR THROW!
