SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

The Southwest Detroit Business Association and Living Arts will host the 2013 "Run of the Dead" 5K/10K race from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday, November 2 at the Patton Park Recreation Center (2301 Woodmere).

The event, which takes competitors through two historic cemeteries, celebrates the Mexican holiday of Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) that honors relatives and loved ones who are no longer among the living. 

The "Run of the Dead" will feature awards for top male and female 5K and 10K finishers, prizes by age category, swag bags with local treats, entertainment along the racecourse such as guitarists, stilt walkers, singers, and a Living Arts Youth Ensemble dance performance of the Danza de la Muerte (Dance of Death). 

A special tribute to honor deceased loved ones also will take place in commemoration of the annual Dia de los Muertos celebration. 

Participants are welcome to wear traditional face-paint, flowers, and attire.  Halloween and non-traditional costumes, however, are not encouraged. Registration costs for the 5K and 10K races are $25, and $30 respectfully.
