Color Me Rad 5K: The SELF Edition Coming to Washington, D.C.

From our friends at

Color Me Rad has joined forces with SELF Magazine and for a series of unforgettable 5Ks, including an event in Washington D.C. on May 30, 2015 at the RFK Stadium. Runners will enjoy the “Bigger, Badder, Radder” Tour, which includes double the color, and will also be part of The SELF Edition.

Each section of Color Me Rad 5K: The SELF Edition will add a new explosion of SELF-approved colors to the participants’ palette. At the finish line, runners will take part in SELF’s Finish Festival, featuring swag from SELF, as well as event partners including Silk.

Since 2012, Color Me Rad has turned more than 1.5 million runners into color revelers. “We are all about encouraging the fun side of fitness,” said race director Scott Crandall. “This should be your most memorable workout of the year.”

Color Me Rad is a for-profit event that gives a portion of the proceeds of each race to a local charity. A portion of the proceeds of this event will benefit Special Olympics Prince George’s County. “The only thing better than getting rad is giving back,” Crandall said.

“Color Me Rad perfectly aligns with the mission of SELF,” said SELF publisher Mary Murcko. “The races are social, energizing, and unquestionably a great time – all things the SELF woman wants from her workouts. She wants new ways to love getting sweaty and that’s exactly what Color Me Rad races do – they make fitness fun!”

In 2015, Color Me Rad has three locations scheduled for The SELF Edition: San Jose, Knoxville, and Washington, D.C. Registration is available at The official event hashtag is #COLORMESELF.
