About This Activity

September, 19, 2015 - The United States has fallen victim to a mysterious viral outbreak which has consumed much of the population, spreading through the bite of an infected person.

There are very few outpost left throughout the country, but where there is a will, there is a way and the resilient citizens of Evanston, Wyoming have taken refuge in Centennial Park, which has been turned into safe zone for all survivors, there's just one catch...

In order to reach the safe zone, you'll have travel 3.1 miles through a zombie infested fairway. Can you make it wihtout being infected?

Event details and schedule

The Running Dead 5K will take place on the fairway of the Purple Sage Gold Course.

Each runner will be given a belt with 3 flags, which represent your "health". Your goal as a runner will be to run this 5K, avoiding zombies who will try to steal your flags, and make it to the safe zone with at least one flag still attached. 

If all your flags are removed, you WILL NOT turn into zombie, but you can finish the race as "infected". 

There will be a Safe Zone party after the race with a chance for the "infected" to become zombies. Food and beverage vendors will be on hand for those particularly hungry zombies. 

The Running Dead 5k is a fundraiser for the Evanston Chamber of Commerce. All proceeds go to enhance the prosperity and growth of the Evanston business community.
