The Southwest Detroit Business Association‘s 2018 Run of the Dead will be held Saturday, November 3rd and is a 5K/10K USATF-certified run that honors the memory of those who have passed away. The Run of the Dead promotes healthy living, offering a fun, interactive way to celebrate El Dia de los Muertos.
El Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a celebration and remembrance of loved ones who have passed. Throughout Mexico and other Latin American countries, El Dia de los Muertos allows people to connect to their origins, pass down cultural traditions, and remember friends and family members who are no longer with us. This tradition honors the transition between life and death.
