It's not everyday you can build your own coffin yet race i down the street and win something. But that is exactly the fun you could be having at this year's Ghostport and now is the time to get it together.

The race will be officially held on Saturday October 21st in Bucksport.  And this event is just the tip of the stake of all the Ghostport family fun planned for that weekend.

Along with the coffin's occupant each participating team will provide four runners (pushers) to propel the coffin. At least three of the four runners must be in direct contact with the coffin at all times during the race until the coffin has come to a complete stop after crossing the finish line.  Costumes are encouraged.
