What is the Graffiti Run? The Graffiti Run will be the most colorful day of your life. Bold statement, we know (especially if you lived through the 70’s or ever owned a hyper-color t-shirt), but just hear us out. First off, we use the term “run” loosely here at the Graffiti Run. Our 5K course is more about having a blast with friends and family than it is about busting out four-minute miles. So feel free to run, walk, dance, crawl, roll, piggy-back ride, or summersault your way through the color madness. Secondly, the no-six-pack-required course means the Graffiti Run is for EVERYONE (unless you hate color or smiling, then you are not invited). You will see green grand-parents next to pink college students. Yellow marathon runners alongside blue children.

Orange moms next to purple unicorns*. We only have two rules: you must get absolutely drenched in color and have an amazing time. 

*unicorns not guaranteed 

How does it work? Oblivious to Labor Day law, you arrive at the starting line in all the white clothing you could find in your closet: white shirt (mandatory), white shorts (not mandatory, yet encouraged), white socks (are there any other kind?), white cape (yes!), white tuxedo (you should save that for your wedding). In your white duds you take off from the starting line like a pristine canvas, ready to become a beautiful, jogging piece of art. Throughout the course you encounter “Graffiti Zones” where our diabolical team of volunteers, staff, sponsors and leprechauns will douse you with COLOR. First green, then red, then orange, then pink, and then at the finish line a grand finale of color that will leave you feeling (and looking) like you just traveled the craziest three miles of your life. 
What is the color in The Graffiti Run? The color powder at The Graffiti Run is simply the single most powerful source of happiness on the planet. You need more details? Fine. Our color powder is a non-toxic, non-rash inducing corn starch based product. It is 100% natural and safe. 

What happens after the Graffiti Run? The color shenanigans continue long after the finish line is in your color-stained rear view mirror at our post-5K Color Party! This is where your color limit is truly put to the test, as periodic “color explosions” rock the party site. Music, food, festivities, and color will be available to cap off the most colorful day of your life!
