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 Columbia 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 Columbia will take place on September 28th, 2013 at the Colonial Life Arena and a portion of the proceeds benefit Happy Wheels.
The Color Bombs start flying at 8am 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 Columbia .

Are you ready to be awesome in October? Running for a cause...that's awesome! By registering in the race for Happy Wheels, you are helping to fund a program that lights up the faces of approximately 250 sick children weekly. Each week, even holidays, Happy Wheels volunteers push a large cart positively LOADED with new toys and books around the hallways of the local children's hospital. As the cart rolls up to their hospital room door, each kid gets to pick his or her favorite item and it is theirs to keep and take home when they leave. The Happy Wheels cart offers a free gift to every inpatient child whose maladies include cancer, leukemia, heart and lung diseases, traumas, diabetes and numerous other problems.
