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 Detroit 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 Detroit takes place on May 11th, 2013 and will be held at the Detroit Riverfront and a portion of the proceeds benefit World AIDS Day Detroit.
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 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.

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 14 years old.
So quit lollygagging and join us for the race that's been ruining all other 5Ks since 2012 at Color Me Rad Detroit.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten)

World AIDS Day Detroit: Creating a crowd eager to act. We are stronger together; together we can achieve an AIDS free generation and get to ZERO.
Since 1981, 60 million people worldwide have been infected with the HIV virus, and 25 million have died. Yet, in the 30 years between then and now, we’ve come farther than many probably thought possible.
It’s true. You don’t hear as much about HIV/AIDS in the news today. There’s no longer the headline-blaring media coverage or the mounting fear.
Despite that, HIV/AIDS does continue to have an alarming impact on our world. Each year, two million people still die as a result of the disease.
Which means, there’s still progress that needs to be made.
In honor of anyone who has been affected by HIV/AIDS, all across the world, the only thing we can do is persist until we get to zero.
ZERO new infections
ZERO AIDS-related deaths
