Just in time for Halloween! You can be a cool "ghoul" at this unique, 3rd annual fall 5K on the grounds of the north side's historic Rosehill Cemetery. Run or walk on the sprawling 350-acre Victorian-era cemetery that opened in 1864. It's by far the largest cemetery in the City of Chicago (and second largest in Illinois).

Moats! Monuments! Scenic paths! And then there's the eternal spirits who reside in Rosehill. Among them: more than 10 Chicago mayors, Oscar Mayer, John G. Shedd, Cubs' announcer Jack Brickhouse, legendary adman Leo Burnett, Sears founder Julius Rosenwald and scores of Civil War vets are just a few of the souls who call Rosehill home.

In addition, there will also be a post run/walk party.
