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 Grand Rapids 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 Grand Rapids takes place on May 25th, 2013 at Millennium Park and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Helen Devos Childrens Hospital.
The Color Bombs start flying at 9am with waves of runners getting plastered with paint every few 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 Grand Rapids.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

Treating a child is not the same as treating an adult. This simple fact lead to the creation of the largest, most advanced children’s hospital in West Michigan. Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital provides medical excellence for kids thanks to the nearly 200 physicians who practice in more than 50 pediatric specialties. For parents and children alike, there’s no place quite like it.
