This is your chance to prove to your friends that you'll be the one to make it or die trying.
On April 12th, 2014, The 5k Zombie Run comes to
Largo Central Park Nature Preserve!
Runners will embark on an apocalyptic adventure. Face your fears as you run from the undead through woods,swamps and hell on earth.
The zombies are ready and ravenous for those that fail.
The choice is yours:
-Run from the Zombies (register as a runner)
-Or take your turn as a Zombie (join the Zombie Horde)
Runners wear 3 flags on a belt. Protect these flags, they’re your “life.”
Zombies are staged throughout the course ready to chase you and steal your flags.
Try to survive, if you can...
Lose your flags, and you’re INFECTED (but finish the race course as a runner, not a Zombie)
Prepare for walkers, runners, crawlers... and some surprises.
Look for Safe Zones at mile markers 1 and 2 with Water, and pick up an extra life flag!
Choose to become a member of the Zombie Horde instead, and polish your human hunting skills while adorned in true flesh-eating fashion, compliments of the event's expert make-up team followed by a visit to our Blood Splatter zone (it would make Dexter proud). Makeup is free of charge, though tips are appreciated!
