Red Bull Cave Triathalon

Check out this iron man type event, carried out in an underground cave. Then decide for yourself if you think the event is a good thing or a bad thing. Unfortunately the article did not state which cave it was held at.

Frankly, most Red Bull events strike me as over the top and in poor taste. I mean, really, cave graffiti?

The Red Bull "graffiti" I saw in the pictures actually looked like illuminated words and symbols shined upon the cave walls with some kind of lighting.
So, I doubt there was any actual graffiti. Obviously that triathlon was held in a commercial cave and I doubt that management would allow actual
Red Bull graffiti to be painted on the walls. I suspect that cave and the race were not held in the USA.

It was held in a commercial cave in Belgium, and Tncaver is right, you can see a man on a ladder adjusting the light projecting Redbull on the walls. Whether it is right or not is up to the owner I guess.
