about color me rad

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 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.

So quit lollygagging and join us for the race that's been ruining all other 5Ks since 2012 at Color Me Rad.

Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

Local Charity Partner

WinSport Academy

The WinSport Academy has more than 400 athletes between our Mountain, Cycling and Skating divisions. WinSport Academy, formerly known as the COP club teams, established itself as a leading community of professionals dedicated to athlete development and performance.

The Mountain Division consists of Freestyle and Alpine Skiing, and Snowboarding. Our Academy Performance A & B Teams train year-round, competing across Canada, United States and even Europe earning ranking points in AFP (Association of Freeskiing Professionals), TTR (World Snowboard Tour) and FIS (International Ski Federation). The Mountain Division clubs offers two streams; competitive and recreational, where young athletes can develop their skills and passion for skiing and snowboarding.

The Cycling Division was new to the Academy in the 2013 season with our Downhill Mountain Biking teams, offering 10-12 week long programs for athletes looking for a structured program aimed at progression. Due to interest and development of downhill mountain biking, the B team started a year-round program, including dryland services provided by the Canadian Sport Institute-Calgary in November 2012. These athletes compete provincially and nationally on the BC Cup circuit.

Our goals are to inspire athletes to value and respect sport, training, coaches and competitions, to earn life skills through sport and to develop well rounded athletes. We work heavily with each national sport organization to fill in the gaps and growing demands of each discipline.

KidSport Alberta


We believe that no kid should be left on the sidelines and all should be given the opportunity to experience the positive benefits of organized sports. KidSport provides support to children in order to remove financial barriers that prevent them from playing organized sport.

We do this by:

·         Raising funds to provide sport opportunities for kids facing financial barriers.

·         Promoting the KidSport mission to other community agencies with a view to creating strategic alliances to support sport participation and physical activity opportunities for kids.

·         Advocating the importance of all kids having access to sport programs and advocate the value and benefit of kids playing sport in the pursuit of lifelong health and wellness.

We believe that through participation in organized sport activities, kids learn the values of:

·         Co-operation

·         Team play and friendship
