Color Me Rad: Weird new race comes to Leeds

Does getting blasted with colour bombs whilst running sound like your thing? Check out this new race coming to Leeds.

Is the only exercise you’ve done this year an Otley Run?

It’s not too late to change- ‘Color Me Rad’ a new 5k is coming to Leeds this May, in which runners are bombarded with colour bombs throughout the race.

Competitors start off with a clean white t-shirt, but will be splattered with blue, green, pink, purple and yellow colour bombs as they run.

Inspired by the Holi Festival in India, over 1 million people have already taken part in the USA.

Race organiser Scott Crandall said: “The only thing better than getting covered from head to toe in colour is knowing it also helps a good cause.”

A portion of proceeds will go to a local charity.
