It would be a pleasant and enjoyable run through one of the most beautiful attractions in the city if it wasn’t for the hordes of undead that have multiplied by the hundreds and taken over the Botanic Garden. As you wait at the start line, listening to the groans of hungry zombies echoing from the shadowy depths of the Garden, you strap a flag belt around your waist. The objective is to run through the winding pathways in the Garden and avoid having your flag belt stripped by zombies that lie in wait throughout the running course.
Whether you survive the zombie horde or lose your life and come back from the dead, there is plenty of fun to be had at the post-apocalypse party for zombies and humans alike. The party will feature a beer garden (local craft brewery), great food, DJ, photo ops, winning team ceremony, and local vendors with awesome things to show off.
Survive the zombie horde and win a FREE craft brew from the beer garden!
The Dead Garden Run is always held at a botanic garden, to support their mission and spread awareness of the great work they do to preserve, educate, and insure that the beauty and diversity of nature can be enjoyed by us and future generations. Just go to the Locations page to see if there is a Dead Garden Run near you.
Remember to register early for best prices.
In addition to supporting the garden itself, the Dead Garden Run also donates a percentage of the proceeds to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Additionally we are partnered with the Red Cross to organize and promote an onsite blood drive the day of the event. These are all great causes – what we do is create a unique adventure so you have fun supporting them.
