For 10 years, runners have been painting their faces and running through town to celebrate Day of the Dead during the Day of the Dead 5K in Raleigh, North Carolina. Oakwood Cemetery and Wilmington Street have altars for runners to leave flowers and notes for their lost ones. For 2022, Trophy Beer has created a Day of the Dead Trophy brew for runners. Proceeds from the event, this year on October 29, 2022, support Brentwood Boys & Girls Club.
