The College Station Graffiti Run is a 5K course where participants start off in their sparkling whites but end up as a work of graffiti art. You don’t have to be a top athlete, ready to run a four minute mile. It doesn’t matter how you decide to travel the 5K of this “run”: walking, dancing, jump rope, piggy back or crawling. Any way you “run” is perfectly fine. The only criteria you need to meet to join in is to pay your fee, show up in white and be prepared to have fun!
At various points along the College Station Graffiti Run course, volunteers are set up to douse you in colorful, non-toxic, cornstarch-based “paint”. After everyone is finished with their run/walk/crawl/whatever and is dressed in their colorful best, there will be a party, of course. The party includes music, food and other festivities, such as the traditional color throw. At the color throw, all College Station Graffiti Run participants will throw the same color powder they are caked in into the sky every 15 minutes or so. While a bag of color is included with your registration fee, you may want to purchase more for the throw at the start/finish lines.
You can register yourself and/or your group online by visiting the Graffiti Run’s website. Registration is $45 per person/$40 group pricing until September 21st. At that time, prices will go up to $50 pp/$45 group until October 11th. Late registration (on October 11th until October 19th) will be $55 pp/$50 group. If you decide last minute to join in on the fun, walk-up registration is welcome at $60 per person. All proceeds will benefit local College Station charities.
Sign up for the College Station Graffiti Run now. Bring your friends and family dressed in their whitest whites to Wolf Pen Creek Park on October 20, 2013 and turn them into walking/running graffiti art. It’s going to be a blast…of color!
