About This Activity

From Dusk... Til Dead Run is a zombie-type race that is approximately 2.5 miles long. Think "flag football" with zombies trying to get your brains (flags)! Outrun Zombies and clear obstacles to make it to the post-run after party with DJ Jazzy Jerr in the beer garden.

Event details and schedule

The race will be at 6pm on Oct. 18. Registration begins at 5pm. The race will start and finish in the Beer Garden behind the Ballroom. Make-up artists from Dark Chambers will be available starting at 3pm in the Beer Garden. Event will be held rain or shine.

Registration for Runners (includes t-shirt and beverage ticket (good for pop or beer for those over 21) if registered by Oct 5). Must be 16 to participate as a runner.
$25 - through Oct 5
$30 - Oct 6 through 18th

Registration for Zombies (not competing in the run, just trying to eat brains). Must be 18 to participate as a zombie. Includes a t-shirt, a beverage ticket (for pop or beer for those over 21) and a make-up session with Dark Chambers make-up artists - $10. Limited to the first 50 zombies.

Online registration will end Oct 17.

Each runner gets 5 flags and if the zombies get all of your flags you "die". But of course you still need to finish the race. The first girl and first guy survivors (those who have flags left) will be awarded prizes.

Prizes will also be awarded for Best Dressed Girl, Best Dressed Guy, and Best Group.
