About This Activity

Do YOU plan to survive the Zombie Apocalypse?  Or do you look forward to becoming a zombie?  Either way, you’ll get your chance at the Zombie Survival 5K this October 19th!

The spooky Imerman forest running trails will be littered with the walking dead.  Participants will complete two 1.5 mile loops within the park before crossing the finish line to partake in Halloween treats.

Participants will have a choice of how they want to approach this event:  As either a Survivor or a Zombie.  Survivors should come in regular running regalia or fun, non-scary costumes.  Zombies should come as, well, ZOMBIES!  Survivors will receive a 5-minute head start in front of the zombies.

This event is an un-timed fun run, but we WILL have a timing clock at the finish line for those Zombie Apocalypse “preppers” who want to know if they’re up to the task of outrunning the dead.

To ensure the safety of all survivors and zombies alike, participants will be required to remain on the pathways and all will be asked to refrain from physical contact.

Portions of the proceeds from this event will benefit both the Saginaw County Citizen Service Corps and the Johnny Burke Children’s Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit organization.
