Looking for a way to add some color to your typical 5K? The Color Me Rad run takes the “art of running” to a whole new level.

The premise of this race, which will be held on June 16th this year, is to show up as color-free as possible—we’re talking head-to-toe white, people—so that by the end, you look like a walking, talking human rainbow. During the race, runners are splattered with a (completely non-toxic) colored corn-starch powder that sticks to your clothes and skin. Oh, just imagine the Facebook-photo opportunities! The best part of all? A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics Philadelphia. Register and find more info here.

Starts at $30, June 16th at 8 a.m., Please Touch Museum, 4231 Avenue of Republic, Philadelphia.
