Color Me Why?

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 Glasgow 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 Glasgow.

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

What's in it for me?

Radio Clyde's Cash for KidsFor over 30 Years Radio Clyde’s Cash for Kids has been raising funds for children in local communities across Glasgow and the West. Since our first appeal we have raised over £30 million and helped more than 1.9 million of the West of Scotland’s most deprived children. 1 in 5 children in Scotland are living in poverty and in some areas of Glasgow that figure rises to 1 in 2. Many of these children don’t have breakfast or dinner and during school holidays these children will have nothing to eat. In 2015 we supported 50,769 children and ensured every single penny of the £1.5 million raised in donations went straight back out to those children who need your help the most.
