Description: The Southwest Detroit Business Association is proud to present this year's annual 5k/10k "Run of the Dead". It is a virtual 5k/10k run which begins Saturday, October 31st and ends on Saturday, November 7th. The ROTD celebrates the Mexican holiday of “Dia de Los Muertos” and the Christian observance of All Saints Day and All Souls Day. We are working with the Southwest Detroit art community to identify an artist to create this year’s ofrenda that will include a community offering component. An ofrenda is a visual art piece dedicated to one or more people who have died in the past year to honor their memory and contributions to others. Every registrant will receive a ROTD swag bag w/ commemorative t-shirt, face mask, lanyard/bib and ROTD medal.
