Colourful dust will be flung through the air today and Sunday as Colour Me Rad comes to Winnipeg.
The five-kilometre run that pelts participants with brightly-coloured corn starch will fill Red River Exhibition Park.
The colour bombs begin flying at 9 a.m. with waves of runners getting plastered with paint every five minutes.
“You’ll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong… but the art of running will make you feel oh so right,” according to Colour Me Rad’s website.
Runners start off with a clean white T-shirt, which is then pelted with blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow dye until they cross the finish line in a rainbow of colours.
A portion of proceeds raised from the weekend will go to support Camp Manitou.
