We were honored to create a Clean Graffiti campaign for the recent Charlotte Marathon in Charlotte, NC. Using our specialized stencils, high-pressure water and dirty sidewalks, we created motivational moments for runners. Also, we gave sponsors a new opportunity for visibility.

The Novant Health Charlotte Marathon, Half Marathon and 5K is a huge running event in the Southeast. Taking place throughout Uptown Charlotte and our beautiful surrounding neighborhoods, runners take to the streets on a massive physical feat. When you are running 26.2 miles, a little motivation is helpful.

In the months leading up to race day we put down “You can do this”and “Find your happy pace” motivational Clean Graffiti messages all around the Queen City. It was so awesome to hear from runners that they would come across one of the reverse graffiti images and simply smile and keep going. This eco-friendly form of outdoor advertising is a great way for sponsors, like Novant Health, to get their name out in a new and different way.

Clean Graffiti was the perfect, unexpected way to advertise for the marathon. Runners take to the sidewalks every single day to train. What better way to reach these customers than to be a motivation for them?! A marathon is a milestone race in a person’s life. It’s pretty cool that the race organizers believe so strongly in positive, motivational messages like Clean Graffiti.

Thanks to our friends at Well-Run Media for bringing us into this project. It’s wonderful to have partners who love and respect our offerings. The Well-Run Media crew is always open to fun campaign ideas for their clients.
