The largest cemetery run in the country is back and we've gone virtual. What, you say? I We know... running through our candlelit course in the Victorian-era built historic cemetery was the hallmark of our event. Unfortunately, we can't join together this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and like you, we are bummed, too. That doesn't mean we can't take the fun and "spirit" of the race and join together virtually anywhere and everywhere.
This unique year is all about the SWAG. A custom raven-themed face scarf is your 2020 Virtual Rosehill Cemetery gear. You can wear it 12 ways (think headband, armband, hair tie, do-rag, and more) but it can also double as your DIY/I don't have time costume to trick or treat in your... well, your own home, I guess.
Your registration also includes a custom race experience packed with the history of Chicago's dearly departed.
Also, tune in for a special live broadcast to celebrate your achievement and provide some much-needed fun and entertainment. Complete the in-home viewing experience with our food and drink upgrades. Click on "Sign Up" to register and explore all the ways to make this the hallmark of your October season.
Finally, as if you didn't need another reason to run... proceeds benefit the American Diabetes Association. Help us support this incredible charity.
*IMPORTANT: We do NOT recommend using the Rosehill Cemetery as your race course. We've appreciated the support of Rosehill in the past for an organized event in which we can control many factors involved in the general public visiting their grounds for the purpose of a run. Please respect those that lie in their final resting places there and their loved ones that visit them by finding a course elsewhere.
