Think You Can Outrun a Flesh Hungry Zombie?
Run for your life from flesh hungry Zombies through a 3.1 mile trail run where ZOMBIES are the obstacles!
The 5k Zombie Run - In the Dead of Night - Sarasota 10.11.2014
Face your fear as you run from the undead through woods and hell on earth.
Zombies are ready and ravenous for those that fail.
The choice is yours:
-Run from the Zombies (as a runner)
-Be a Zombie
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 can still finish the course as a runner.
Look for Safe Zones at mile markers 1 and 2 with water, and pick up an extra life flag!
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 followed by a visit to our Blood Splatter zone. Makeup is free of charge, though tips are appreciated!
