Description

The largest cemetery run in the country is back and we've gone virtual. What, you say? I We know... running through our candlelit course in the Victorian-era built historic cemetery was the hallmark of our event. Unfortunately, we can't join together this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and like you, we are bummed, too. That doesn't mean we can't take the fun and "spirit" of the race and join together virtually anywhere and everywhere. 

This unique year is all about the SWAG. A custom t-shirt, skull-themed face mask, and LED necklace are included with your registration. We're stoked about the mask - it's protective AND it can double as your DIY/I don't have time to make a costume for trick or treating in your... well, your own home, I guess. 

Your registration also includes a custom race experience packed with the history of Chicago's dearly departed. 

Also, tune in for a special live broadcast to celebrate your achievement and provide some much-needed fun and entertainment. Click on "Sign Up" to register and explore all the ways to make this the hallmark of your October season.

Finally, as if you didn't need another reason to run... proceeds benefit Best Buddies of Illinois. Help us support this incredible non-profit that enriches the lives of people living with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

*IMPORTANT: The Rosehill Cemetery is not available to run through this year. Please do not include its interior as part of your course. We've appreciated the support of Rosehill in the past for an organized event in which we can control many factors involved in the general public visiting their grounds for the purpose of a run. Please respect those that lie in their final resting places there and their loved ones that visit them by finding a course elsewhere.  

Swag

Swag is sweet this year. A black cotton/poly blend short-sleeve t-shirt, cotton face mask, and LED necklace are included in this year's PUMPED UP goody bag.
