Living Colors

Ever heard of synesthesia? It’s a neurological condition in which criss-crossed neurons enhance and combine your senses. Every person with synesthesia experiences it differently, but most hear, taste, or feel in color.

Participating in Color Me Rad is like living a day as a synesthete. It’s five kilometers of running while getting pelted with color bombs that turn you every shade of the rainbow. Obviously red is the color of the 8 a.m. race start, and sky blue is the color of runner’s high. No matter how colorful you look at the end of the race, you’ll definitely feel golden when you find out that your entry fee benefits Ronald McDonald House of Phoenix.
