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 Winnipeg 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.
Color Me Rad Winnipeg will be at the Red River Exhibition Park on July 20 & 21, 2013, and a portion of the proceeds benefit Camp Manitou and is sanctioned by the Manitoba Runners' Association.
The Color Bombs start 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: more color, running shoes, hoodies, free entries.
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. Volunteers must be at least 16 years old.
So quit lollygagging and join us for the race that's been ruining all other 5Ks since 2012 at Color Me Rad Winnipeg.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

Camp Manitou was founded in 1930 by the following five service clubs: Rotary Club of Winnipeg, Kinsmen Club of Winnipeg, Cosmopolitan Club of Winnipeg, Kiwanis Club of Winnipeg, Optimist Club of Winnipeg and the YMCA. It was incorporated as a non-profit charitable organization in 1949 with the mission to provide an enriching camping experience for children and youth would not otherwise have the opportunity or resources to do so. The Lion’s Club of Winnipeg became a member of the charity in 1952.
Since 1997, after the YMYWCA left, the Service Clubs of Winnipeg have carried on the tradition and have enabled over 50,000 at risk children and youth to enjoy a healthy and exciting camp experience.
This past summer, Camp Manitou had a record with just over 4,000 of children and youth at risk in Manitoba with their 42 different organizations attend.
Camp Manitou’s approach differs dramatically from that of a traditional summer camp with individual children registering. Our unique model of the camping experience during the summer is to work exclusively with Manitoba youth serving non-profit organizations to bring out their children and youth from their community programs as well as schools. We provide great leadership, wonderful activities and nutritious food.
