This year the race will start at 10:00am, and as usual the race course goes through Oakwood cementery and loop back to Wilmington St. We will have two altars; one at Oakwood cemetery and one on Wilmington Street where people will be able to do offerings of flowers and written messages in memory of their loved ones. There will be an art corner for the kids sponsored by Artspace, face painting by Paint Savvy, the best prices from local businesses, for top runners and best costumes, our famouse dance-off costume contest and Tercer Divisa will be playing life and DJing the event.

As if this wasn't enough, this year we are adding a new incentive to all runners- MARGARITAS! All runners 21+ will finish the race at Gallo Pelón with a Celebratory (FREE) Day of the Dead Margarita, and don't worry if your under age... we've got something special for you too!
