Race Information

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 this candle-lit 5K course - a sprawling 350-acre Victorian-era cemetery that opened back in 1864. Rosehill Cemetery is by far the largest cemetery in the City of Chicago and the second largest in Illinois.

Moats! Monuments! Scenic paths! And then there are 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.
