Allergic to the metric system, to gluten-free cornstarch or an overdose of joy? Then maybe you’d better stay home safely watching reruns of Friends, instead of standing at the start line of this 5km run that likely will land up looking like Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road!
But…if the prospect of stretching your legs and adding a smidge of color to your best friend’s face sounds hugely appealing, then don’t miss the Color Me Rad Québec Run.
As the first wave of runners takes off at 9am, color bombs will be whistling through the air and exploding every 5 minutes or so, in full Technicolor. And at the finish line, you’ll most likely resemble a merry artiste in a kindergarden art lesson gone very wrong. But the Art of Running is well worth the effort. The weather forecast is calling for rain with a 100% chance of rainbows but leave your umbrellas, parasols and ponchos behind because you’ll want every precious raindrop to land on your face!
This run is a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLSC).
