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

Color Me Rad Edmonton

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.

Sound fun? It is. Color Me Rad Edmonton is a 5K fun run filled with colour, music, and a whole lot more. If this sort of event is new to you here's how it works:

  1. Sign up, then show up wearing a whole lotta white clothing
  2. Run! Pelt each other with little bags of colour (don't worry, it's harmelss!)
  3. Give our as many colour filled high fives as you possibly can!

Course Information

Color me Rad courses typically follow a loop that's roughly 5K in length. This isn't a timed or official distance run at all so the course can vary a little bit from one event to the next.
