Race Information

UNO’s Carrera de Los Muertos (Race of the Dead) is a 5k charity race and festival to celebrate the Day of the Dead. Come celebrate El Día de Los Muertos/Day of the Dead in Pilsen, Chicago's most culturally rich and vibrant neighborhood. This 5k generally sells out so be sure to register early. This race is held on a USATF certified course 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.

The race also features a livestream for virtual runners and participants.
