about color me rad

Get ready to start eRADicating lameness everywhere cuz this year we're running INSIDE Kings Island Amusement Park! We’re bringing more of our RAD color than ever before and we're putting the fun back in run at Color Me Rad Cincinnati-Kings Island. 

Park admission is included with run registration, which also includes free parking for all runners. A deep discount is available for Kings Island Season Pass holders. Also, after the race be among the first that day to experience the new record-setting Banshee roller coaster which will send you screaming through seven inversions at speeds up to 68 mph.

So If you're allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you'd probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k. 

But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash, Color Me Rad is the run for you.

By intelligent design or evolution, man was meant to run for one thing and one thing only: to stay alive. Pamplona was the first real race organized for what running should be: running from stuff that's going to kill, gore, or maim you.

Luckily, we've evolved to where we only hunt for attractive potential mates, we only gather for extreme couponing, and we only run to benefit charities and our cardiovascular system.

So quit lollygagging and join us for the race that's been ruining all other 5Ks since 2012 at Color Me Rad. Plan the perfect day by getting your RAD on and by seeing how many times you can ride the new record-setting Banshee Coaster!

Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).
