Rosehill Cemetery Crypt 5K
You can be cool (and it's OK to be a bit of a ghoul) at this exciting, fall/pre-Halloween 5K on the grounds of the north side's historic Rosehill Cemetery! Run or walk on the sprawling 350-acre Victorian-era cemetery that opened in 1864. It's by far the largest cemetery in the City of Chicago (and second largest in Illinois).
Moats! Monuments! Scenic paths! And then there's the eternal spirits who reside in Rosehill. Among them: more than 10 Chicago mayors, Oscar Mayer, John G. Shedd, Cubs' announcer Jack Brickhouse, legendary adman Leo Burnett and Sears founder Julius Rosenwald, to name just a few. And don't forget the heroic Civil War vets near the entrance.
