RUNNERS: The Running Dead Z5K


Event Date

About This Activity

The goal of the race is not best time so much as survival… Runners will follow the designated course while the zombies try to ‘kill’ them. Runners will be wearing a flag belt, similar to the ones worn in flag football. The zombies will try to grab the flags off the belt, which ‘kills’ the runner. Once a runner looses all three of their flag, they are ‘dead’. Dead runners will still finish the course and will receive a ‘victim’ medal.

The first three runners across the finish will receive ‘survivor’ awards, and everyone who finishes will receive a medal.

This is a cross country course being run in the early evening. Be prepared for steep hills, brush and multiple surfaces such as trails, playing fields, gravel roads & pavement in lower light as the race goes on.
