Dia de los Muertos - CANCELED

Sat October 30, 2021 Winston-Salem, NC 27101 US Directions


5K Race

5:30PM EDT

Race Cancelation

Regrettably, the Dia de los Muertos 5K has been canceled and will not be held in 2021.  Anyone that has already registered for the race will be fully refunded.

This cancelation is due to several circumstances that made it too much of a challenge to host a race this weekend.  We were eager to host the inaugural Dia de los Muertos 5K  race in 2021, but this will need to wait until 2022.

The final Coal Pit Live show of the season is still on for this weekend and is not affected by this cancelation. We are truly sorry for the cancelation of the 5K race and hope you’ll plan to join us in 2022.
