WICHITA, Kansas — Thousands of people gathered at Sedgwick County Park on Saturday morning for the Color Me Rad 5K Run.

Runners and volunteers tossed and sprayed thousands of pounds of colored cornstarch to add a little fun to the run.

Last year more than 200,000 runners participated in Color Me Rad runs in 36 cities across the country. Saturday’s event was the first time Color Me Rad was staged in Wichita.

More than 8,000 runners in the Wichita area registered for the 5K, but organizers said they could only fit 8,000 into the park.

20 percent of the proceeds raised will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of Wichita. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
