FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - A little bit of color goes a long way, including a Saturday morning in the Summit City.
Around 8,000 registrants ran the Color Me Rad 5K near the Memorial Coliseum, dawning their best reds, blues and yellows along the way.
The objective of the Color Me Rad is to get as colorful as possible while having a fun time. Runners, and walkers, are splashed with paint and corn starch at each kilometer of the race. Most people wore white T-shirts, bandanas and sunglasses to keep the coloring in check.
The course starts at the Coliseum, winds through Johnny Appleseed Park, runs down Spy Run Avenue and finishes back at the Coliseum.
Organizers say Fort Wayne's run has been one of the more popular ones for a city of its size.
"For Fort Wayne, this is actually, per capita, a better race than a lot of our other areas," Color Me Rad executive director Will Strauss says. "We hopefully deliver a good enough product that they want us back."
