The Southwest Detroit Business Association’s Run of the Dead is a 5K and 10K USATF-certified run that connects the observation of those who have passed away through the celebration of a long-standing Mexican holiday with an interactive and health-conscious event. With routes through the historic Holy Cross and Woodmere cemeteries, the Run of the Dead is one of several Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) activities found throughout Southwest Detroit.
The Run of the Dead promotes healthy living and offers a memorable, interactive way to celebrate El Día de los Muertos in a welcoming and culturally diverse environment.
