Dress as a zombie or come as you are! The 2nd Annual Running Dead Zombie 5K is a trail 5K chase through the eerie woods by the beautiful, scenic Kankakee River. Part of the proceeds go to Matteas Joy, which raises money for food and gifts for families with hospitalized children.
Off of I-57, take Exit 308. Turn onto US-45/S Schuyler Ave heading north. Turn right onto River Road. Turn left into Kankakee Community College's campus. Follow the road passed the parking lot and drive to the parking lot nearest the pavilion on the right side of the main building. Signs will help you throughout your way.
Humans will be given 3 lives (strips of police tape) and a 30-second head start. Zombies will then chase the humans and try to gather as many human lives as possible. As a human, hold onto your lives and precious seconds will not be added to your final time. There will be 2 divisions of runners and awards and trophies will be given to the fastest runners of 5 different age groups, as well as overall fastest male and female runner, fastest zombie, zombie with the most kills, and best dressed zombie! Come celebrate the Halloween season and run for a great cause!
