About This Activity

The zombies are back at Sleeper State Park!  Escape the dead while completing a 5K trail run through the wood. “Survivors” who make it to the finish line with their “body tags” still attached to the back of their shirts will receive a special reward in addition to cool event specific t-shirts and high quality finisher medals.

So you’re not a runner…don’t worry! Not all zombies are as fast as they look. Slower zombies will be hiding in the woods waiting to catch our participants who prefer to walk. You can still experience all of the creepiness of having to escape the living dead with the 5K walk event. 

Sleeper State Park boasts awesome campsites, so make it a weekend event and reserve your spot now! Spend some time hanging on the beach, chowing down on some famous Caseville cheeseburgers, or just sitting around a campfire reliving your terrifying experiences from the race.

Can’t run?  Well, there will be slow zombies at this event too!  Experience all of the creepiness of having to escape the living dead at a slower pace with the 5K walk event.

Make it a weekend event!  Reserve your campsite right at the park so that you may relive your terrifying ordeal over a campfire with other survivors.   You can also take in a beautiful sunset on the beach or visit downtown Caseville for one of those famous cheeseburgers everyone talks about!


Sleeper State Park is 723 acres of forest, wetlands, sandy beach and dunes located in Caseville, on the Saginaw Bay of Lake Huron.  The race course is made up of the smooth, hard packed Huron and Deer Run trails through the woods within the park.

While the threat of encountering zombies during this race is a reality, safety is still the utmost priority.  Runners and walkers alike will be required to stay on the trail during the event and must refrain from touching zombies!  (Zombies will be stationary along the edges of the trail for safety purposes)

DISTANCE: 5K (3.1 Miles)
