Uptown Columbus hosts Color Me Rad Run

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Runners were hit with an explosion of color today this Saturday at Color Me Rad Run in Uptown Columbus.

Runners start out in white and were bombed with a burst of color at different parts of the run, every 15 to 20 minutes. Organizers partner with charities like Feed One to help in the fight against hunger to make this run possible.

"It just an honor to be a part of something, and I'm glad the community was able to something like this together. It shows how many people really care and It's just cool to be able to support something that you can have fun in and support a good cause, but also you know promote exercise and everything else," a participant stated.

The event included food and music for all the colorful runners.
