About This Activity

Think You Can Outrun a Flesh Hungry Zombie?

The 5k Zombie Run gives you the chance to run for your life from flesh hungry Zombies through a 3.1 mile trail run where ZOMBIES are the obstacles!

The 5k Zombie Run Tampa 11.14.2015

This is your chance to prove to your friends? that? you'll be the one to make it or die trying.

On November 14th, 2015, The 5k Zombie Run returns to Tampa for a 4th year!
Runners will embark on an apocalyptic adventure. Face your fears as you run from the undead through woods and hell on earth.

The zombies are ready and ravenous for those that fail.

The choice is yours:
     -Run from the Zombies (register as a runner)

     -Or take your turn as a Zombie (join the Zombie Horde)

Runners wear 3 flags on a belt. Protect these flags, they’re your “life.”

Zombies are staged throughout the course ready to chase you and steal your flags.

Try to survive, if you can...

Lose your flags, and you’re INFECTED (but finish the race course as a runner, not a Zombie)

Prepare for walkers, runners, crawlers... and some surprises.

Look for Safe Zones at mile markers 1 and 2 with Water, and pick up an extra life flag!

Choose to become a member of the Zombie Horde instead, and polish your human hunting skills while adorned in true flesh-eating fashion, compliments of the event's expert make-up team followed by a visit to our Blood Splatter zone. Makeup is free of charge, though tips are appreciated!]
