To Do: Rest in Peace 5K at Laurel Hills Cemetery

Get costumed for this October race, which takes place at night—in a cemetery. Spooooooky!

Halloween meets 5K in this costumed run on October 6th. Get dressed in your best costume and kick off the spookiest season of the year as you run through Laurel Hills Cemetery. Organized by East Falls Fitness, the run raises money for two nonprofits that support diverse communities in the city of Philadelphia: Gearing Up and Friends of Laurel Hill.

Dress up and win prizes for best overall costume, best group costume or best couple. But beware, Laurel Hills Cemetery is packed with challenging hills, twists and turns, so you may want to steer clear of cumbersome fat suits and too-tight leather.

After the run, party it up in the graveyard with live music by the Baily Hounds and free beer as you await the verdict of the costume competition and raffle winners. Treat yourself to some Halloween treats and complimentary massages. For more info, go here.

$35 ($40 day-of), October 6 at 5 p.m., Laurel Hill Cemetary, 3822 Ridge Ave, Philadelphia.
