The Graffiti Run

Kentucky Speedway, Sparta, KY
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.
Raising money for local charities! Check out the event location for more details.
The Graffiti run is currently offering 50% off registration for everyone included in the Kentucky Speedway email blast. Go to The Graffiti Run website and sign up for the Cincinnati, Louisville, and Lexington race. Type the code KSpeed50 when prompted during check out to redeem offer!!

In April 2013 Komen Lexington funded programs at King’s Daughters Medical Center and Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital that provide screenings, diagnostics, treatment, education and support services for residents of our local community. The remaining 25 % of the funds raised are invested in research to find the cures. Those funds also have come back to our community as the University of Kentucky received Komen grant funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research. You helped make that happen and we thank you!
Please join us on August 17 in Ashland’s Central Park at 9:00 a.m. Together we can make a difference!
