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 3 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 Info Docs

Race Day Info Packets will be posted 3 weeks before the race with tons of info on parking, color partying, and how to clean the color out of your most sensitive areas.


Photos will be available a few days
after the race.

Charity Partner

We make it our mission to produce an event that brings the community together in celebration of art. We act as a catalyst promoting creativity, inspiring imagination and helping to cultivate an appreciation for art in all its glorious and diverse forms. With the support of generations of loyal Festival-goers, during our 37 year history we have transformed from a small city event into a nationally recognized fine arts festival that draws an average of 86,000 patrons to Salt Lake City area each year.

The Utah Arts Festival is committed to bringing the community together in celebration of art by providing direct, affordable access to a wide variety of artistic mediums in one central location. Fans of art come in many shapes, sizes, colors and forms. From athletes to gardeners, construction workers to accountants, chefs, sculptors, writers, readers, runners, rappers, you name it – art is for everyone and anyone can be a fan!   Art Fans unite!
