About This Activity

Zombie 5k

Join us for the first annual ZOMBIE 5K on Friday, August 14th at 8:15pm at the Defiance County Hot Air Balloon Festival!

This zombie-filled 5K run starts at the airport and goes to Oxbow Lake and back. You will be running from virus-spreading, blood hungry zombies! You will have two “life flags” and your goal is to get through the entire run with at least one flag to “SURVIVE”! Zombies will not physically contact any runner except when trying to pull off a “life flag”. Zombies are not allowed to pull of more than one flag at a time. This is a trail run, so dress appropriately.

Check-In begins at 7:30pm and the race starts at 8:15pm. All ZOMBIE 5K attendees and volunteers will receive free admission to the festival on Friday, August 14th.

 There will be a restroom available before the race and at the turn-around. There will be water at the turn around as well as the end of the race.

We are looking for Zombie volunteers! Zombies must come in full make-up. Please contact uwmarketing@defnet.com if you are interested in being a zombie!
