Color Me Rad Registration Has Opened!


Color Me Rad 5k returns to Fondren’s Zippity Doo Dah® Weekend on Saturday, March 22, 2014.

Online registration is now open at Participants enter the promo code, FONDREN, for 20% of registration fees to be donated to Friends of Children’s Hospital.

The funky and colorful non-timed race, presented in part by Fondren Renaissance, was a huge hit last year and sold out prior to race day with over 8,000 participants.

Fondren Renaissance executive director Jim Wilkirson said his organization is proud to facilitate and welcome the family-friendly event. “We had a blast last March and knew before it was over we definitely wanted Color Me Rad back for this year.”

Adults and children alike will run or walk through Fondren to be “color bombed” at each kilometer, resulting in a neighborhood washed in a rainbow of colors. The colored dust is made of FDA approved colored cornstarch and washes off in the shower.

Color Me Rad was created by four friends who wanted a 5k that was more fun than pressure. Races are held in more than 30 cities across the U.S. and Canada. Last year’s Fondren event helped add to the $100,000 total donation from the Zippity Doo Dah® Weekend.
