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 Tampa 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 Tampa takes place on May 25, 2013 at the Florida State Fairgrounds and a portion of the proceeds benefit the Special Olympics of Florida.
The Color Bombs start flying at 9:00am 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 Color Me Rad puts the “un” in “run” and the multi-colored Splenda in your coffee, smart puts the “car” in “uncar” and we’re stoked to have them as the Official Pace Car of Color Me Rad.
smart will be leading out our first wave of runners and don’t let its smallness in
stature fool you. It's got enough strength to be a pro-wrestler and enough
charisma to win over your mother-in-law.
Want to take one for a spin? Find a smart center near you by clicking HERE.
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 Tampa.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

Special Olympics Hillsborough County has over 1,000 athletes, 200 coaches, and 600 volunteers who currently participate in our various programs. As a not-for-profit organization, we rely heavily on the contributions and support of our local businesses to be able to provide our athletes with the caliber of programs that they deserve, while maintaining our unique principal that our programs are 100% free for athletes to participate.
Special Olympics is founded on the belief that people with intellectual disabilities can, with proper instruction and encouragement, learn, enjoy, and benefit from participation in individual and team sports. These must be adapted only as necessary to meet the needs of those with mental and physical limitations.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for persons eight years of age and older with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
Would like to invite you or your organization to take an active role in supporting our local programs.
