RACE INFORMATION

Southwest Detroit Business Association Run of the Dead will be held Saturday, November 4th and is a 5K/10K USATF-certified run that honors the memory of those who have passed away. The Run of the Dead promotes healthy living, offering a fun, interactive way to celebrate El Dia de los Muertos.

The Run will start at Patton Park Recreation Center and travels through two historic cemeteries-Woodmere and Holy Cross.

El Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration and remembrance of loved ones who have passed. Throughout Mexico and other Latin American countries El Dia de los Muertos allows people to connect to their origins, pass down cultural traditions, and remember friends and family members who are no longer with us. This tradition honors the transition between life and death.
