about color me rad uk

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 colour-filled 5k.

But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash, Color Me Rad Aberdeen 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 Aberdeen.

Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).

How do I get my packet?

If you register just 3 weeks or less prior to the event (or did not sign the waiver) your packets will be sent to the venue to be picked up on race morning. Lines can get long so please arrive 1hr early so you don’t miss your wave time.


Race Day Info Packets will be posted 2 weeks before the race with tons of info on parking, colour partying, and how to clean the colour out of your most sensitive areas.
