About This Activity

Thanks to the 326 runners and 60 volunteers who made our first annual Running Dead 5K in 2014 such a huge success. The 2015 event is set for Saturday, October 10 at Pear Blossom Park at The Commons in downtown Medford!

The most unforgettable 5K fun run in the Rogue Valley! The Running Dead 5K is a charity event to benefit Goodwill’s job training programs in the Southern Oregon region including Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake counties and Siskiyou county in CA.

It’s NOT a timed event, but an experience set to begin at dusk. Zombies can be a bit scary so this is a 12 and over event. It is a non-violent, just-for-fun race. The only grabbing on the course will be for flags — for safety reasons no strollers, bikes, skateboards, or other wheeled equipment is permitted for runners.

The 5K course will culminate with the Apocalypse Party for runners, their supporters and general public. The party features music, contests, prizes, food, beverage, vendor and community booths.
