The Graffiti Run will be remaking what it means to do a 5k in the West Valley. Creating an entirely new colorfully euphoric experience, the Graffiti Run will combine the festive beauty of the Indian holiday Holi, a celebration of color, with American athleticism. Runners of all kinds from grandmothers to 20 something hipsters will come out to enjoy the happy occasion.

Registration for the Graffiti Run will begin 8 a.m. Jan. 6 at the Peoria Sports Complex. The Graffiti Run will be donating a portion of its proceeds to the Special Olympics of Arizona. The Special Olympics of Arizona has more than 10,000 athletes, 24 sports, and is active year round. Partnering with this organization follows in with the Graffiti Run’s own mission to support health and happiness.

“It is a top priority to produce an amazing event,” said Derrest Williams, co-owner of the Graffiti Run, “and it is just as important for us to give back. We are honored to work with the Special Olympics and invest in the importance of health and health education.”

More than 3,000 participants have signed up, and for more than half of the runners, this will be their first race. Kicking off the New Year to a great start filled with joy, fitness, color, and great music, the Graffiti Run is proud to host its first event in America’s southwest. The Graffiti Run is harnessing what’s most beautiful in Phoenix, art, athleticism, and family fun.
