Dia De Los Muertos Endurance Run (DDLM Endurance Run) features a 24 Hour, 12 Hour & 6 Hour option.
ABOUT DIA DE LOS MUERTOS
Día de Los Muertos (DDLM) is a day in the year like no other. This deeply revered Mexican tradition provides a universal opportunity to celebrate our connection to loved ones passed on and the ancestors whose lives allowed ours to happen.
The DDLM Endurance Run celebrates the power of this tradition and each runner’s personal power and hard-earned endurance.
The start/finish line will be adorned with a special addition: an ofrenda (altar). Before the race, runners can visit the ofrenda to leave offerings that honor their ancestors and loved ones passed on. These offerings of photos, flowers, fruits, drinks, trinkets, and written messages provide runners the opportunity to add a unique layer of depth, gratitude, and purpose to their endurance run from start to finish.

The course is made up of two loops. Loop A is approx. 1 mile and Loop B is approx. 1.5 miles. Loops will be measured by measuring wheel and actual distances will be posted later. Runners will complete as many loops as possible within the allotted 6, 12 & 24 hour periods. Runners will run loop A first then loop B then rinse and repeat!
Belt Buckle & Finisher Medal
A custom 100 Mile and 50 Mile DDLM Endurance Run belt buckle will be presented to any runner who completes 100 or 50 miles.
Also, every participant who completes a minimum of 20 miles will receive this beautiful Finisher Medal
