The Graffiti Run - Volunter Page

Q: I love color and happiness, but I just don’t feel like running first thing on a weekend morning. However, my friends, family and co-workers are still running and I want to be a part of the event! How can I get involved?

A: Well, you’re in luck! We are looking for volunteers to help us make the event run smoothly. The Graffiti Run is a fun and exciting community service opportunity for individuals or small groups. It is also a fantastic fundraising opportunity for larger groups (25+ volunteers). You can join our Graffiti Squad, man the water stations or volunteer at the post party. Check out the volunteer descriptions below and then click a link to register to volunteer at The Graffiti Run!



To volunteer for the upcoming Denver 2017 event, go to the registration page, hit “register” and then select the “Volunteer” ticket type.

GRAFFITI SQUAD So, you think you have what it takes to be on the Graffiti Squad? We’ll see about that. Do you have the desire to donate your time, energy, and special powers to the noble cause of drenching every Graffiti Runner you encounter with as much color as possible? Do you have the skill to apply said color strictly below the neck of our Graffiti Runners, ensuring only minimal color hits their precious faces? Are you prepared to be covered yourself in beautiful color (because the Graffiti Squad is no place for chromophobes)? Did you stand up and scream “YES!” to every one of these questions? If so, there just might be a place on the Graffiti Squad for you. GRAFFITI SQUAD ASSEMBLE!

Hours – Usually, no later than 7:00am -11:30am

H20 SQUAD Yes, our colorful participants will be running and therefore will also be thirsty.  If you want to be the most desired volunteer out on the course then the H20 SQUAD is for you. It will be up to our H20 squad to keep the color craziness moving and hydrated by distributing water to runners as they pass by. Please keep in mind you will also be responsible for clean up of the water bottles in your section.

Hours – Usually, no later than 7:00am -11:00am

REGISTRATION/CHECK-IN – You Shall Not Pass!  That is right, no one will be admitted to run the Graffiti Run the day of the event without coming to see YOU or your team!  Here, you will be responsible for collecting waivers, checking ID’s, checking for completion of registration, administrating bibs/shirts & delegating any hard questions to the race director present in your area. Sounds hard, but really isn’t!

Hours – Usually, no later than 7:00am -11:00am

STORE/COLOR PACK – This group will be responsible for distributing the Graffiti Run Gear and Graffiti Packs to participants at the end of the race!

Hours – Usually, no later than 7:00am -11:00am


PRE-RACE DAY VOLUNTEER CATEGORIES: (These volunteers, in exchange for volunteering the day before, will get the option to join the Graffiti Run at a stunning $10!)

PRE-PACKET PICK-UP – This is just like Registration/Check-In duties, but this will be the day before the race, so you can still run for the discounted price. You must volunteer the entire time in order to earn the discounted price.

Hours – This varies and depends if there is a packet pick up in the city or not.
