If you're allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you'd probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k.

But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash,
Color Me Rad Raleigh is the run for you.

By intelligent design or evolution, man was meant to run for one thing and one thing only: to stay alive. Pamplona was the first real race organized for what running should be: running from stuff that's going to kill, gore, or maim you.

Luckily, we've evolved to where we only hunt for attractive potential mates, we only gather for extreme couponing, and we only run to benefit charities and our cardiovascular system.

Race Details


Color Me Rad Raleigh takes place at the Time Warner Cable Music Pavilion and benefits the Special Olympics of North Carolina. Click on the tab that says "Charity Partner" to find out more about what they're doing.

The color starts flying at 9 am with waves
of runners getting plastered with paint every 5 minutes after. You'll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong... but the Art of Running will make you feel oh so right.

Don't forget to LIKE us on for race updates and to win sweet stuff: Camelbaks, running shoes, hoodies, free entries.

Volunteer

Just like at Christmas and birthdays, 'tis
better to give than receive... right? I know that's a hard one to swallow for 8 year olds, but in this case, it might be true. If you want to pummel your friends and family with color rather than be pummeled, sign up HERE to volunteer and join the COLOR BOMB SQUAD.

So quit lollygagging and join us for the Most Colorful 5K You'll Ever Run at
Color Me Rad Raleigh.

Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

    I picked up packets for our team + Eileen. Let's meet tomorrow beside the color me rad truck. The truck is located outside of the entrance of the ampitheater (as if you were going inside the venue to purchase more event swag). We will be there by 8:45. Heats for the race start at 9 and are released every 5 minutes. Call me if you need to at[masked]

      I'm sorry that you ladies couldn't attend last Sunday. I did send an email to all the adventurers who have RSVPed yes. Check and make sure I'm not going into your spam folder. Our t-shirts are pretty basic...Mine is just white with blue iron on letters that say "Badder than hue"

    Is anyone interested in getting together before this event and making t-shirts, etc...? I'm planning a kooky outfit for the run, complete with tutu. Join me in my silliness. It's for a great cause, so it's totally acceptable! ;)
