About This Activity

The Run For Your Life! Zombie 5k is in mysterious Moapa Valley, Nevada.  The event begins on Friday, the 13th at dusk in the spooky breezeway entrance to the Clark County Fairgounds.  There are lots of crevices for zombies to lurk in as this 5k path winds through the grounds and onto the public pathway past the cemetery and the woods.  There is just enough challenge to the path with some elevation changes, darkening of the day, and zombies in the way! Add a zombie chase and ramp up the fun!

Moapa Valley High School JAG Career Association is hosting the event.  JAG focuses on pathfinding and preparing young people for the workplace, college, and/or military.  JAG students are raising awareness for "Staying Undead" The Nevada "Zero Teen Fatalaties" Safe Driving Campaign and raising money for service projects and opportunities for JAG Students.
