Looking for a little run this Halloween? Maybe something that’s both spooky and philanthropic at the same time? Dress up as Thurston Howell, III and head down to Oakland Cemetery for Run Like Hell!
Run Like Hell is a 5K race that benefits Historic Oakland Cemetery. It’s set to take place on Halloween Morning, October 31, at 9 am. Racers are encouraged to dress up in costume and bring the little ones to run in the companion Run Like Heck 1K Race. There will be judged costume contest, pumpkins, creepy crawlies, and all the Halloween trimmings.
Best of all, racers will be supporting Historic Oakland Cemetery, one of Atlanta’s finest landmarks. Comprised of 88 acres, Oakland Cemetery was founded over 150 years ago and is one of the city’s most beautiful green spaces. Its magnificent mausoleums, monuments and gravestones are rivalled only by the gorgeous tree canopy and history of the hallowed grounds.
