The Day of the Dead 5K is a race celebrating tradition, community, and diversity. This event is benefiting the Brentwood Boys and Girls Club of Raleigh.

This is a kids and family friendly event, open to participants of all levels and ages. While there will be prizes for top male and female runners, we'd love for you walk the 5k, as well. Strollers are welcome, but unfortunately pets are not allowed. Whichever way you choose to take on the course, just have fun!

We will be celebrating the festive Mexican holiday, Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. In honor of holiday traditions, everyone will be dressing up in their best calavera costumes and we encourage you to dress up, too. The top three costumes win a prize! There will also be other traditional activities such as altars and offerings to the deceased.

We hope you'll join us for this event as we realize that regardless of our background, we are all part of the same community.
