Hundreds of runners and walkers braved unseasonably cold weather Saturday morning April 9 for the Color Me Rad 5K amidst the snowflakes on the streets of Old Hilliard.

The race -- during which water-soluble color bombs are tossed at runners as they pass stations and reach the finish line -- began and ended at the Franklin County Fairgrounds.

Several Granville and Newark residents were among the participants.

Sherry Rice said the group she ran with Saturday included her friends and their friends, and all had different levels of running experience.

"We're always looking for things that are fun and support a good cause," Rice said.

The 5K supported lymphoma and leukemia research.

"I lost my sister to lymphoma, so it's very near and dear to my heart (so) I (bore) the cold and wind this year," Rice said.
