The Day of the Dead is a holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, to celebrate the lives of the deceased.
It begins on the 31st October, so this Halloween, Virtual Racing UK has created their 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.
