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 Chattanooga 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 Chattanooga will take place on March 30th at Finley Stadium and benefits the Make-A-Wish East Tennessee Foundation.
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 Chattanooga.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten)

Make-A-Wish East Tennessee grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. We serve 36 counties within the East Tennessee area from Chattanooga to Knoxville to the Tri-Cities areas. We have always known anecdotally that wishes renewed outlooks and changed lives, we saw it happening. But we now know, based on research, that a wish has been transformed from a “nice to have” to a “need to have” experience for a child and their family.
Parents and medical professionals alike describe the wish experience as a frequent turning point in wish kids’ battles for health. Wish kids are more willing to comply with difficult, but vital, treatment regimens. Parents and volunteers observe that a wish come true makes kids feel stronger and more energetic. The 2013 goal for Make-A-Wish East Tennessee is to grant 84 wishes please help us make them come true. Please register for Color me Rad Chattanooga benefitting Make-A-Wish East Tennessee. Come see the (colorful) faces of the children that you will be helping and enjoy beautiful Chattanooga.
