Event Description

Dead Band Running 5K is a Day of the Dead-themed glow race to support the Pope High School Band.  We have a great fast course that starts at Pope with our awesome drumline.  There will be band students on course keeping the energy flowing with live stands tunes music.  After the race you can enjoy free family fun:  food, face painting and tattoos, photo ops and our own balloon artist!  There will be medals for overall first place men and women, and 1st-3rd place in the standard age divisions.  Don't like to run?  That's ok!  Come walk with us and enjoy a great evening out!  

This event will help the Pope HS Band keep dues affordable and contribute to our truck fund to replace Bessie, our aging band truck.  Pope Band Parent Association is a non-profit, tax exempt 501 (c)(3) organization that exists solely to support the needs of the Pope HS Band program.
