Race of the Dead
Come celebrate El Día de los Muertos/Day of the Dead in Pilsen, Chicago's most culturally rich and vibrant neighborhood. The Carrera de los Muertos/Race of the Dead 5k generally sells out so be sure to register early. It is a USATF certified course.
The route is a smooth one through neighborhood streets, starting and ending just outside Addams Medhill Park, and takes runners past a variety of the area's fabulous murals.
Runners are cheered on with entertainment throughout the race including live mariachis, traditional folkloric dance groups and Chicago house music DJs. The post-race party provides authentic Mexican and Latin American food set to music in a traditional Day of the Dead setting.
