THE LAST FOUR YEARS HAVE GENERATED OVER $24,000 IN SCHOLARSHIPS FOR OUR MARGINALIZED STUDENTS!

Why Two Options?

In Person is the traditional way to run races. If you have the means to join us in downtown Pasco, WA on October 29th, the in-person option is right for you. Virtual is the Covid-Era option for those who feel the need to social distance and for those who do not live in the area. You will still have the option to purchase merchandise and to have your official results counted along with the in-person crowd. We encourage all runners to pick the option best suitable for them.

DIA DE LOS MUERTOS PRESENTS FIRST HANDS 24 HOUR RUN

This 24 Hour Run is a test of endurance in an effort to humanize farmworkers beyond their economic value. A run completed in solidarity with the men, women, and children who sacrifice their bodies and health.

COURSE INFORMATION

The five-kilometer course begins in historic downtown Pasco as runners are welcomed by mariachi music. Runners follow the train tracks south to the urban green trail, meandering until it leads runners under the white bridge and soon after reaches the turn-around point. Participants get to experience the attractions in reverse order.

The ten-kilometer course begins at the same location, with a mariachi send-off. Runners in the 10k get an enhanced experience by crossing over the cable bridge into the city of Kennewick, reaching the Clover Island lighthouse before they turn around. These joyful runners also get an additional mariachi band as they run by the Lampson building.

EVENT DETAILS

We would like to welcome our Event Partner, Downtown Pasco Development Authority. Please keep revisiting while we update Dia de los Muertos weekend details.

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.
