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).

Charity Partner

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.
