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. A portion of the proceeds from Color Me Rad Vancouver go to Special Olympics British Columbia.
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 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?

Special Olympics BC (SOBC) Vancouver is a volunteer non-profit organization dedicated to providing opportunities for individuals with intellectual disabilities to become productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition.
Our athletes' oath is: Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.
In 1984, Special Olympics BC (SOBC) Vancouver was established as a Local of Special Olympics BC. Representing athletes throughout the city of Vancouver, BC, the Local offers over 30 programs across 23 different sites, which are athlete-centered, and supported by over 150 dedicated volunteers.
These programs give athletes the opportunity to train year-round in order to compete and test their skills against athletes of similar ability. Our athlete base is at 237+ and growing, aged 2 to 83, and of all ability levels from developmental to elite. Athletes train and compete at the regional level and have the opportunity to qualify and participate in provincial, national and world games.
