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 Pittsburgh 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.
Color Me Rad Pittsburgh takes place at the Washington County Fairgrounds on August 25 and benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Pittsburgh.� Click on the tab that says "Charity Partner" to find out more about what they're doing.
The Color Bombs start flying at 9 am with waves of runners getting plastered with paint every 5 minutes after. You'll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong... but the Art of Running will make you feel oh so right.
Don't forget to LIKE us on for race updates and to win sweet stuff: Camelbaks, running shoes, hoodies, free entries.
Just like at Christmas and birthdays, 'tis better to give than receive... right? I know that's a hard one to swallow for 8 year olds, but in this case, it might be true. If you want to pummel your friends and family with color rather than be pummeled, sign up HERE to volunteer and join the COLOR BOMB SQUAD.
So quit lollygagging and join us for the Most Colorful 5K You'll Ever Run at Color Me Rad Pittsburgh.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

In doing so, families are given stress and financial relief and are allowed to focus on what matters: the well being of their child.
