5k, Fun Run

Race Information

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

Color Me Rad Calgary

Sound fun? It is. The Calgary Color Me Rad 5K fun run is filled with colour, music, and a whole lot more. Never heard of this sort of thing before? Here's now it goes down:

  1. Sign up, then show up wearing your Sunday best (or just a bunch of white).
  2. Run! Get covered in tons of happy colours (don't worry, it's harmelss!)
  3. High five your firends, strangers, yourself, small animals...

Top Tips for this Event

Wear something light, bright, and fun for this run. Oh, and expect to get covered head to toe in colours!
Most people sport a pair of sunglasses to these events. Helps guard your eyes against any stray colours (it's all very safe though!)
You can run this as fast as you want but the majority of people aren't going for any sort of specific time goal.

Course Information

The Calgary event follows a rough 5k loop course, expect numerous colour stations where you will end up getting a bit messy!
