About This Activity

The Roanoke Zombie 5K is an untimed fun run held to benefit the Virginia Special Olympics.  Each runner or team is given a flag football type belt with 3 flags.  The flags are the runners' "lives".  Runners will complete a 5K run/walk, while "zombies" try to take their flags.  In order to have "survived," runners must cross the finish line with at least one flag.  Zombies will be stationed throughout the course and may only go a short distance to "chase" a runner.  Each runner that "survives" with at least one flag will be entered into a drawing for prizes.
