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).

packet pick-up info

Packet Pick-up details will be available 2 weeks prior to the race date. It is important to pick up your packets (race bib, t-shirt, sunglasses, tattoo) prior to race morning because lines can get a little out of control and you don't want to miss your wave time do you? Do you?


Race Day Info Packets will be posted 2 weeks before the race with tons of info on parking, color partying, and how to clean the color out of your most sensitive areas.

The YMCA of Metropolitan Denver  - Making Our Community Stronger 

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the YMCA of Metropolitan Denver, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

More than a gym or a place to learn to swim, we’re part of a national nonprofit with programs extending beyond our facilities, and into neighborhoods across the metro area. Every day, the Y provides opportunities for kids to grow up to be happy and confident, promote health and wellness, and connects people to each other.

The Y is for everyone. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, financial assistance is available for membership and programs for those who qualify. Join us in building a stronger Denver, visit www.DenverYMCA.org
