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 Manchester 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 Manchester.
Color Me Rad: gluten-free running since 2012 (all previous years were full of gluten).
What's in it for me?

Make-A-Wish Foundation® UK has a very simple objective – to grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions. The charity was founded in the UK in 1986 and since then has granted more than 8,000 wishes.
With over 20,000 children in the UK living with life-threatening conditions at any one time, our work is never ending. Our aim is to ensure that every one of these children is able to experience the magic and joy of a Make-A-Wish wish.
We receive no government funding or lottery grants, relying on the generous donations of the public, and that’s why, for our charity, every donation really counts.
