The Walk/Run Para Los Muertos is for those who must express themselves through movement, through something with more energy to honor the dead.
Not everyone is interested in building an ofrenda or a memorial, some people need to process death in a different expression, some dance, some paint, some bike,some run, some walk. All forms of expression are excepted and welcomed to this festivity where we are respecting and honoring the lives of those who have passed into death. Furthermore, there are deep roots in Native American spirituality including the Mayas, the Mexicas or Aztecs, where those who run or walk use each step to the Earth as a prayer to honor those who came and passed before them.
