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 Info Docs

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.


Photos will be available a few days
after the race.

Charity Partner

Special Olympics Pennsylvania (SOPA) is a statewide organization providing children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round sports training and competition. Special Olympics envisions a world where people with intellectual disabilities lead healthy, vibrant lives. The Special Olympics sports experience has always been rooted in a radical notion: That every person has the capacity to be an Olympian, and that human greatness is defined more by the spirit than the body. With over 50 local area programs throughout the state, Special Olympics Pennsylvania  serves nearly over 20,000 athletes statewide. SOPA is one of the 50 state programs and one of nearly 130 countries providing this opportunity to more than one million athletes worldwide.
There are currently more than 2.5 million children and adults with intellectual disabilities who are training to compete in Special Olympics. Special Olympics Pennsylvania offers 21 sports for athletes to choose from. Special Olympics athletes have the opportunity to expand beyond competition.
Best of all, Special Olympics is FREE to eligible people wishing to participate! The financial and in-kind support of sponsors, donors, and families make it possible for Special Olympics athletes never to be charged a fee to compete!


The mission of Special Olympics PA is to provide year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills, and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes, and the community.
