Ask any runner why they run and you’ll get a different answer every time. Some do it for the exercise or the endorphins. Some run for the alone time. Others enjoy the sense of community between runners. Very few, however, will tell you that they run because it’s fun. Trudging along for hours on end just doesn’t scream, “Best time ever!”
Enter Color Me Rad – the world’s most fun five kilometer run. Taking place this summer, in cities all over North America, the aim of the game is to have a really awesome day. And to raise some money for a few great charities in the process.
So what is Color Me Rad exactly? The Vancouver version takes place Saturday, August 18th at UBC Thunderbird Stadium. Starting at 9am, waves of runners, walkers and just-for-funners will begin an easy jog. At each leg of the race, participants get doused with a different color. Like a tangible rainbow, this makes everything a whole lot better. The best way to really grasp the concept is to watch this video:
