We’re the only 5K that will send you running through the rainbow and leave you covered from head to toe in powders of pink, yellow, green, blue, and violet. Winners are rewarded at the finish line with DJ anchored dance party that will make you forget you just ran a 5k. After a day of color bombardment, we guarantee your outlook will be brighter and ass a lot tighter.
Start out as clean as a newborn babe, and throughout the run, our volunteers will coat you with powders of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until your face, shirt, and body come out silkscreened like a tie-dyed hippie on the other side. Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter’s palate until you cross the finish line into a final explosion of color.
This is the royal rumble of color. Every 15-20 minutes, participants grab their color powder and create a revival of the RADDEST kind. There will be music, food, and more RAD runners than the 80s. Hugs are free and just like any good AA meeting, spectators are welcome.
Color Me Rad TShirt, RAD Temporary Tattoo, a pair of RAD sunglasses, 1 Color Bomb (given out at the Finish Line for a colorful celebration), and a runner's bib.
Attention Color Me RAD Runners,
The day we've all been waiting for is nearly upon us! Our team has been hard at work making sure conditions are juuuuust right to saturate you from head to toe in the brightest hues possible. Here is the info you need to know about where to go and when to collect your race gear and be ready to party on Saturday, May 19, 2018.
Our Packet Pick-Up Party is the place for you and your fellow RAD runners to collect your race goodies. Sunglasses, Tattoo, T-shirt…… it’s all here. One person can collect race packets for your whole gang so nominate a trusted rep to gather gear for the whole team and consolidate trips. If you are not able to make it to the Packet Pick-Up Party you can pick up your gear on race day, but be warned that the lines can be long.
Any Rad Runners picking up their Packet on Saturday at the Color Me Rad event will be charged a $5.00 Convenience Fee.
Where, When, Why?
Location: Homewood Suites Winnipeg, 1295 Ellice Ave, Winnipeg, MB R3G 0N5
Follow the signs to the Empress A Conference Room in the Homewood Suites
Schedule: Friday, May 18th, between 11 AM – 7 PM
WHAT TO BRING
To pick-up your packet, you’ll need to bring your e-tickets (printed or on your phone). It would be wise to bring some cash, too, in case you decide to load up on extra color bombs or gear. In your packet, you will find your bib number, a T-shirt, sunglasses, a RAD tattoo, and any other merchandise you purchased at the time of registration! The color bomb that is included in your registration will be handed to you at the finish line of the course. If you can’t make it to Packet Pick-Up you can send someone to pick it up for you, just make sure they have a copy of your ticket.
