Think You Can Outrun a Flesh Hungry Zombie?
Prove It.

This is your chance to prove to your friends​ that​ you'll be the one to make it or die trying.

On November 9th, 2013, 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.

​What is a Zombie Run?

It is a Zombie Infested 5k Trail/Forest Run.

What will we do?​

You have 2 options:
     -Run from the Zombies (register as a runner)
     -Or take your turn as a Zombie (join the Zombie Horde).

Runners select a wave/start time, run 3.1 miles in woods and swamps, and try to escape from the Zombies.​

Zombies are staged throughout the course, hungry for brains. We’re offering makeup for those that need it to become a zombie.

How does it work?

Runners get 3 flags on a belt. Protect these flags, they’re your “life.”

Run, climb, crawl, jump… but cross the finish with at least one flag intact and  YOU’VE SURVIVED!  Lose those flags, and you’re INFECTED (but finish the race course as a runner, not a Zombie). Prepare for walkers, runners, crawlers... and some surprises.

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 or your own materials.

All registrants receive a T-shirt, Finisher Medal, Multiple Free Beers at local Pubs and entry to the post-race Apocalypse party complete with music, and food. Minimum age is 12 with a parental waiver for this race.

Even Zombies have a heart (and maybe they'll have yours as well)! A portion of the proceeds raised will benefit THE ONE FUND - BOSTON to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.
