Colour Me Rad (or Color Me Rad as its spelt) is coming to Scotland and we’re really excited! The 5k fun-run (emphasis on fun!) is making its Scottish debut in Edinburgh on the 8th June this year.
The run, which is already an international success, is inspired by the Hindu festival of colour Holi where, in India, citizens bombard each other with dye-filled water balloons. Runners are invited to walk, jog, run or crawl the 5k distance, as volunteers from the sidelines pelt them with colour bombs made from non-toxic, non-rash coloured cornstarch. Participants emerge triumphant at the finish line looking like tie-dyed hippies.
Registration is open now, and places are filling up fast! The organisers have already had to add another race wave due to the popularity of the event. Don’t worry too much though, there is another race being held in Glasgow later on in the year. If you don’t fancy becoming a multi-coloured mess, you can always sign up as a volunteer and join in by providing the racers with their Technicolor coating.
You can get more information and register for either side of the event at the Color Me Rad website.
Create a team and get in touch with us for your personalised t-shirts. Or go the whole shebang and order joggers as well! We can create a logo, print or embroider your team name, and even add nicknames of the individual runners. What better way to remember the day, than with your own custom made colour-bombed t-shirt!
