Event Description

Band on the Run is a fun, community-based Day of the Dead-themed event.  It is a great theme, and at our last in person race we had nearly 300 runners, some of them dressed in their Day of the Dead finest!  We draw from folks in our local area and offer lots of fun in addition to the thrill of a 5K race.  We will have balloon art, face painting and tattoos, costume contest, as well as raffles and fun photo opportunities. We start our race with a percussion cadence to get your feet moving fast and we keep you grooving on the course with live band music provided by our band students.  New this year, we will also offer a fun wheelchair-friendly roundabout race!  Our shirts are legendary, and feature this year’s super cool Day of the Dead skull.


Our band program is growing and we are in need of new instruments. The Pope Band kids love what they do, and they work hard to be great at it!
