Color Me Rad GIVEAWAY: NYC-MetLife Run

hey runner friends who live in the NYC/NJ area — i have a giveaway that just might interest you.

back in April, i gave away a pair of entries to a fun Color Me Rad run at the Jersey shore…and now i have another similar giveaway for the Color Me Rad run coming up on July 27th at the MetLife Stadium! this is the NYC-MetLife run, as NYC isn’t actually hosting one in the city this year. located in East Rutherford, New Jersey, it’s held at the stadium where both the NY Giants and the NJ Jets play their home football games, and should be a super cool venue for this rad event.

just a little refresher on what Color Me Rad does to spice up a 5K:


Who they are: Color Me Rad is passionate about putting the “fun” in a healthy lifestyle and promoting events that will make anyone look forward to waking up for a race. they’re socially minded, too, and donate a portion of the proceeds to local charities. located in cities all across the US and Canada (and some international locations now, too!), you can check out their schedule here to find a race near you.

What it entails, exactly: you show up clean, and you leave looking like a kindergartner used you as a finger painting canvas. any questions?  🙂  take it from them:

“you’ll start off with a shirt as pure and white as your granddaddy’s dentures, and throughout the run, we’ll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until you come out like a tie-dyed hippie 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.”
