A RACE TO REMEMBER

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS RUN WANTS YOU TO RUN THIS YEAR'S RACE IN REMEMBRANCE OF A PASSED LOVED ONE. IT IS THROUGH YOUR HEALTH AND WELLBEING THAT YOU CAN HONOR THE LIFE AND DEATH OF A FRIEND OR FAMILY MEMBER. BE SURE TO BRING A PHOTO OR ITEM IN COMMEMORATION OF THESE INDIVIDUALS AS YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PLACE THESE ITEMS ON THE VIGILS AT THE RACE START/FINISH. IF YOU ARE ABLE, PLEASE DONATE TO THE SCHOLARSHIP FUND IN THEIR HONOR. THE SCHOLARSHIPS GENERATED THROUGH THIS EVENT WILL HELP THE NEXT GENERATION ACHIEVE ACADEMIC SUCCESS. WE HOPE THAT THEIR PROFESSIONS WILL BRING THEM BACK TO SERVE IN OUR COMMUNITIES.

THE LAST TWO YEARS HAVE GENERATED OVER $15,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS

It is officially a national race! Run anywhere!

What is a virtual run? Due to COVID-19 and a need for social distancing, we are providing the Dia de los Muertos vibe while still respecting your space. Virtual runs are self-timed using your personal running device or the ASICSrunkeeper app. You run your own 5k, 10k, kids 1 mile, or half marathon route and record your time. We will provide you with a recommended Dia de Muertos playlist and you will receive a t-shirt designed by renowned artist DavidV35 and a commemorative 2020 bib as a memento.

COURSE INFORMATION

Due to COVID-19, we are tentatively planning for a smaller, socially-distanced and masked local run (if the city permits it) along the Columbia River. More details will be emailed soon. Runners will also have the option of running their own course for the total distance they have signed up for. The time will be entered through the ASICSrunkeeper app and/or manually by the runner.

T-Shirts

We present to you our 2020 Virtual DDLMrun t-shirt design created by DavidV35. We are very excited to bring you this new wearable art created by such a talented artist.

There's more. If you donate to the scholarship fund you can have the name of a loved one added to the back of our race shirt. A donation of $50 or more will get the name of the deceased you wish to honor which will be artistically incorporated into a sugar skull design.

We at DDLMrun continue to believe in the idea of honoring those who are no longer with us by empowering and helping the next generation.

Deadline for adding names is October 4th!

WHAT IS

DIAS DE LOS MUERTOS??

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), is a Mexican tradition dating back more than 3,000 years to the time of the Aztecs. Taking place each year from October 31st through November 2nd, the annual celebration provides an opportunity to pray for and remember friends and family members who have passed. It is believed that loved ones are reunited with families on this special day. The tradition includes vibrant flower-filled altars, offerings that our loved ones might miss in the afterlife, including favorite foods and beverages. A day of family reunion and celebration, Dia de los Muertos becomes an acknowledgement of that which is an inevitable part of life.
