About This Activity

An exciting October happening that will provide all with a "SCREAMING" good time!  The Running Dead” -  Zombie Race will feature the ONLY race held on a golf course in our area. However, if there is another race on a golf course, we really don't care, ours is the only one that matters! The course is terrifyingly beautiful! Runners and walkers will be, well, running and walking as fast as they can to escape and make it to the finish line! Young and old alike may participate in this 5K, 8K, Double Z (Running both the 5K and 8K races) or Freaky Fun Run/Walk.


Event details and schedule

Prizes will be awarded to various age groups in both the runs and the walk.  Zombies, Witches, Monsters and more will be waiting to cheer the racers on as they cross the finish line! And, Zombies tend to be sneaky so be prepared to be scared on the course!
