Welcome to Historic Congressional Cemetery’s Dead Man’s Run 5K, a bare bones race for dead serious runners who want to stay one step ahead of the ultimate Reapo Man. Race starts with a toll of the funeral bell, continues throughout the Cemetery and onto the Anacostia Trail for a ghostly evening run full of spooky music and fun!
Costumes encouraged, with prizes for best costumes and team costume! Form a team to compete with your friends – and we love to see creative team names.
