Join us Halloween weekend on Friday evening, October 29, 2021 at 6:30 pm for the thrilling Walking With The Dead 10K, 5K & 1 mile run or walk presented by Columbus Rotary on the grounds of the historic Green Lawn cemetery on Columbus’ South side. Experience Central Ohio’s most spine-chilling Halloween fun run and walk through the sprawling 360-acre Civil War-era grounds of the 2nd largest cemetery in Ohio.

Gargoyles! Moats! Monuments! Scenic Paths! And then there’s the famous Central Ohioans who reside in Green Lawn. Among them: several Ohio governors, Columbus Mayors, Famous Artists and Musicians, WWI Flying Ace Eddie Rickenbacker and scores of Civil War Generals and vets are just a few of the souls who call Green Lawn home. The scenic course will take you past many of the monuments recognizing the final resting place of many heroes.

Dress up the entire family and yourself in your most ghoulish outfit and come out for this fun event.

The 10K, 5K and 1 mile run or walk is organized on behalf of the Columbus Rotary Foundation and the Green Lawn Cemetery Association and helps to support the care and maintenance of Green Lawn Cemetery.
