Are you and your family looking for a creative way to kick-off your Halloween? Running Excels is bringing back the Tombstone 5K! We have partnered with two local business associations to offer this family-friendly event whose course runs through Mount Greenwood cemetery. The Running Excels Tombstone 5k is chip-timed, but we invite runners and walkers of all abilities to come join the fun! And don’t forget to show off your costumes! This race gives runners the opportunity to debut their unique, scary, and adorable get-ups before Halloween even arrives! Mark your calendars for October 20th!
Proceeds from the race will go toward beautification projects on 95th Street and on 111th Street. (The race is a collaboration between Running Excels, the 95th Street Beverly Hills Business Association, and the Mt. Greenwood Community Business Association.) We will also donate a portion of the proceeds to I Am Who I Am and the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation.
Participants are encouraged to run in costume. All runners will receive a Tombstone 5K hoodie!
Female/Male overall winners will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to Running Excels. Prizes will be given to the top 3 costume winners.
