Colors often reflect the mood of the person wearing them; dark blues can imply sadness, bright yellows give a sense of joy, and tie-dye the warning that their 13 personalities are arguing. See the power of color first hand with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $25 for entry to the The Colorful 5K – Graffiti Run (up to $50 value)

On Sunday, May 18, runners will gather at Arena Green East Park for the Colorful 5K – Graffiti Run. The first wave departs at 9 a.m. with waves following every 15 minutes. Armed with a race T-shirt, headband, and color packets, runners dash, dance, prance, and skip along the 5K course with the goal of finishing with the most color on them. Proceeds from the race benefit local charities.

The Graffiti Run

The creators of The Colorful 5K use the term “run” very loosely. Less of a race, and more a celebration of the human spirit, The Graffiti Run encourages participants to dash, dance, prance, skip, cartwheel, or walk the course as they douse each other in vibrant hues that span the full spectrum. Each run also donates a portion of proceeds to a local charity, which range from Special Olympics affiliates and scholarship funds to city cleanup and beautification projects.

Customer Reviews

This was our first graffiti run. It was a great mom/daughter experience. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to have fun especially if it's their very first 5k!

Was fun!

This was a super fun race for the whole family! The only suggestion I have is to educate the volunteers that it is NOT a good idea to throw the color directly in individuals faces... it got in our eyes...including the kiddos, the package even says to avoid eyes! Other than that... fun race!
