Run for your life 5K at Batavia Cemetery

The Batavia Cemetery Association will host the Run for your life! 5K race and kids fun run on Saturday, Oct. 17.

Race participants will gather at dusk deep within the historic Batavia Cemetery and head out onto Harvester Avenue. The race continues down the street to a neighboring cemetery and then back to finish on the dark, candlelit path among the residents.

Kids, up to age 11, are invited to run a two lap, quarter mile race around the perimeter of the front lawn, circling the Richmond Mausoleum.

The kids fun run begins at 6 p.m. and the 5K race begins at 6:30 p.m.

Pre-registration is $15 and $12 per person for a group of three or more. Day of race is $20 per person and kids are $2 each. T-shirts are guaranteed for the first 100 participants. Proceeds benefit the upkeep and restoration of the Historic Batavia Cemetery.
