ALL RUNNERS MUST PRE-REGISTER! THERE WILL BE NO DAY-OF REGISTRATIONS THIS YEAR! (Registration closes on Sunday, 9/19/21)
Organized by the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries, the Rest in Peace 5K is the premier Halloween costumed Run in the region! The RIP 5K is back for its 13th year and will be on the grounds at historic Laurel Hill Cemetery! On-site registrations are limited so make sure to sign up early!
Not comfortable with the idea of running on-site yet? You’ll have the option to participate remotely with the Virtual Fun Run option, which means you can run anywhere your heart desires, keep track of your miles (3.1 miles) and times.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to preserve and promote the historical character of both Laurel Hill and West Laurel Hill Cemeteries, through educational programs and public outreach. If you needed an awesome reason to don a costume, get out of the house, and get your miles in, we just gave you one. You’re welcome.
You’ll be running for two historic cemeteries, in October, so now isn’t the time to get shy about your costume creativity. Costumes are also a RIP 5K tradition and each year the competition gets tougher. Not only do runner compete in a 5K, they do it dressed in some amazing and elaborate creations! Those who exhibit excellence in pseudo couture take home great prizes.
