THE RACE: Organized by the Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery, the Rest in Peace 5K is a unique and challenging run through Laurel Hill Cemetery, a National Historic Landmark located in Philadelphia. Don’t let the beautiful scenery fool you; the course is packed with plenty of hills, twists and turns! Compete solo or with a team.
THE CAUSE: Proceeds from the event will benefit the Friends of Laurel Hill Cemetery, a 501©(3) nonprofit that works to preserve and promote the historical character of Laurel Hill Cemetery through educational programs and public outreach. If you needed an awesome reason to don a costume and party down for Halloween, we just gave you one. You're welcome.
THE COSTUMES: You’ll be in a cemetery during October so now isn’t the time to get shy about your costume creativity. Grab your partner or your friends and beat out the competition for Best Couple or Group Costume. Want to keep all of the cool prizes to yourself? Show up by yourself in something outstanding and head home with Best Overall Costume.
THE PARTY: Following the run, join us for our after-party featuring free beer from Magic Hat Brewing Company
and music by 102.9 WMGK
. Prizes will be given out for best costumes and to the winners of the run. Don't forget your wallets! Buy some raffle tickets for a chance to win some top-notch prizes.
