The Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau is inviting all runners to come to Moline, Illinois for our Color Me Rad 5K Run on August 24.

White-clad participants start and end the race at the i wireless Center in downtown Moline, Illinois, they will be doused with multi-colored cornstarch along the race course. The color tie-dyes their t-shirts and bodies while it brightens the runner’s outlook on life. This is an untimed event that is focused purely on fun, and fitness.

After completing the 3.1-mile course, runners will declare themselves rad as they toss their own bags of color into the air and create a fireworks display of color.

1,000 people will take off every five minutes beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, August 24, 2013. Participants of all ages are welcome to run or walk. Registration is available online at www.colormerad.com. Enter code QCSPORTS and a portion of each registration will be donated to the Quad Cities Sports Commission. Registration is $35 per person if registered by May 31. After that, registration is $40 until June 18; $45 if registered by August 2; $50 if registered by August 21.
