About This Activity

What better way to celebrate a fantastic New England autumn then to run a 5K in spooky Salem Massachusetts while being pursued by Zombies? The Running Dead Zombie 5K gives the runner the experience of a road race mixed with the fantasy of live action role play. Each runner is given a flag belt. The goal of the runner is to complete 4 laps through the park with at least one flag remaining. The goal of the Zombie actor is to capture as many of the runners flags as possible.  Be prepared for steep hills, trails, playing fields, gravel roads and some of the scariest Zombies that you have ever seen in your entire life! This year, proceeds will be donated to The Salem Feline Hospital and The Salem Dog Park.
