About This Activity

 5KRunDead is a zombie-infested charity 5K fun run.  100% of proceeds will benefit local schools and scientific research on cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

Here are the basics of the race:
Runners will endure a 5K run through a zombie-infested course. Test your speed, endurance, and strength while trying to avoid ravenous zombies. Runners will have flags that represent their health. Zombies will try to steal those flags. Runners must make it to the finish line with at least one flag or become one of the walking dead!  Prizes will be awarded for runners and zombies.  We will be showing a fun zombie-themed movie (Zombieland) outdoors afterward complete with food vendors.  Bring your chairs and blankets!
