FIU Running Scared 5K - RUN FROM ZOMBIES FOR A CAUSE!!!
Join the FIU Triathlon Club for a 5k Zombie run on Sunday, October 27, 2013 @ 8AM. Join us as a runner, walker or ZOMBIE! All zombies are asked to come in zombie attire with your face painted, you will recieve a make-up kit in your race packet. We will not be providing make-up services at the event. Run on FIU's flat and fast route alongside the open waters with veiws of yachts and Miami Beach in the distance either running from Zombies or chasing runners.
None of this run is through a parking lot! Come experience the amazing event and feel good knowing that the proceeds will benefit students helping others make positive healthy lifestyle habits through running, swimming and cycling events.
We will be manually timing this event old school style with a stop watch and trying out our new timing app RACESPLITTER.
ALL COSTUMES ARE WELCOME. We will be signing up Zombies, but will still have our costume contest just before the race starts at 8AM, so come in any costume and enter for a chance to win an FIU gift bag including a platinum FIU BBC Rec Annual Membership, Road ID gift certificate and FIU Swag!!!
This is a fun road race, all ages are welcome. Prizes will be awarded to the first, second and third place overall winners (male & female), we will not have medals or age divisions.
