About This Activity

Join us for some real Halloween Fun at the Graveyard Run 5K and Trick-or-Treat Dash as we #RunPalmSprings on the Saturday morning before Halloween. It's a great opportunity to wear your costume and compete in the costume contest as you run past the Wellwood Murray Cemetary and then follow a scenic route through spooktacular Palm Springs neighborhoods. There's a trick-or-treat dash for kids 10 and under that includes a Halloween button, trick-or-treat bag and goody stations along the route.
