About This Activity

Return of the Zombies to Decatur! Join the Friends of the Decatur Public Library in this second annual Zombie 5k run/walk in Fairview Park! This is an all ages out and back course, with zombies to avoid along the route. Contact us with any questions or to volunteer as a zombie at! Registration fee covers shirt, dog tag, post race party, and supports the Friends of the Decatur Public Library non-profit organization.

Runners must register by Saturday May 24th to receive a t-shirt. Registration is available through and the cost is $20.00. The Zombie 5K is a fun run/walk for all ages… avoiding zombies all along the route!

Runners will have a limited number of tags that prevent them from being infected by the undead plague and must avoid the lurching zombies’ attempts to take all your flags. The route throughout the park is beset by zombie hoards and lone zombies roaming in search of brains.

Race packet pick up is at the library before the race from 1:30-3:30pm on Saturday June 7th. You may also register in person at the Second Saturday book Sale at the library on April 12th and May 10th from 9:30-12:30am.

Event schedule and times

An evening race starting at 6:00pm. Last day of registration is May 24th.
