Dia De Los Miles is more than a run. Set in beautiful Elk Grove Park, we will be showcasing a mercado (market). Considering that artists from Latin America have a long history of producing bright textiles, decorative plates, beaded jewelry to hand-tooled leather goods, we wanted to bring some talented local Latino artists to showcase their diverse wares. So on race morning, come for the run and stay for the mercado and wander the stalls. You may find the perfect gift for yourself or your friends.
