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.
- $25 for entry to the Graffiti Run 5K (up to a $50 value)
On Saturday, June 7, runners will swarm the streets of Tucson for the annual Colorful 5K. 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 multiple color zones. In these areas, runners are doused with powder as they dash to the finish line with the goal of completing the race splashed with the most color. A portion of the proceeds are donated to 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.
