It’s Back – Color Me Rad Richmond {Giveaway}

by on February 9, 2013

Remember the Color Me Rad 5K race I ran back in July? It’s coming back to Richmond this April! So if you missed your chance to get all colored up last year, you’re in luck…

The event details:

  • What: Richmond Color Me Rad 5K Race
  • When: Saturday, April 20, 2013 
  • Where: Snag-A-Job Pavilion, Innsbrook: 4901 Lake Brook Dr. Glen Allen, VA 23060
  • Cost: $40.00
  • Sponsor: Special Olympics VA – “Special Olympics provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.”

I’m not sure I’ll be able to run this one since my knee still hasn’t fully healed from my Turkey Trot injury, but the race directors are allowing me to host a giveaway here on EBF for TWO free entries into the race!!

If you’re local to the Richmond area (or close enough to come visit for the weekend of April 20) and you would like to run the Color Me Rad 5K, just leave a comment below by Wednesday night at 11:59PM EST. I’ll randomly select and announce the winners this Thursday, February 14, 2013. <– Valentine’s Day + my birthday. :)

Thanks for entering everyone. The giveaway has ended. The winners are Abby and Ellen.

I would love the opportunity to do this, I’ve been on weight watchers and have lost 70lbs and have been religiously following your recipes (overnight oats with chia!) and would love for this to be my first ever 5K!
