Halloween day of the dead October medal

October 5k Day of Dead

Regular entry price £12.00 Special Offer

Back by popular demand for the second year and with a brand new medal design....

Introducing our amazing 2019 Day of the Dead 5k Challenge featuring green jewel eyes that sparkle, this is a truly amazing medal.

The Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, to celebrate the lives of the deceased. Officially it's on Saturday 2nd November. 

So this Autumn, Virtual Racing UK has created our very own Day of Dead 5k to celebrate the event. 

It is open throughout October and can be completed as a run, walk, cycle or swim.  One session or split across the month, it's your choice.

Day of the Dead festivities are an explosion of colour and life-affirming joy.  So of course, our medal had to be bright, colourful and with plenty of detail.  Although the theme is death, the point is to demonstrate love and respect for deceased family members, so why not dedicate your Day of the Dead 5k to a love one that is no longer with you.
