GEORGIA ZOMBIE FEST 5K Walk, Run, Creep or Crawl and Fun Run/Walk

Etowah River Park • 600 Brown Industrial Pkwy CantonGA  30114 Organized by Classic Race Services

About this event

It’s 2020 and we had a hard time getting the Zombie's to come out this year. Do you blame them, LOL! But the Zombie's will be back for the 2020 Georgia Zombie Fest 5k Walk, Run, Creep and Crawl and one mile Fun Run/Walk. So come out LIVE and in person or you can participate as your awesome Virtual Self, either one works for us.

Georgia Zombie Fest 5K: THE END (OF 2020) IS NEAR!!!!!

Join us on Friday Evening October 30th at Etowah River Park in Canton, GA and begin your journey. From Etowah River Park you will follow the paved path to the bridge and on through the zombie infested woods (you will literally be going over the river and through the woods.) Coming out of the woods (if you make it) you will round Hertiage Park and then it’s back through the woods, at dusk, while it’s getting dark, and there are zombies, are you getting the picture now?

We really do have nice zombies, they won’t touch or hurt you, they are just fun. This is a run that is just Scary Fun – but it is also for a serious cause. Just like Zombies, we are also fighting the battle and losing too many of our friends and family to drug overdose. Join Cherokee FOCUS cause we are RAISING AWARENESS, BY RAISING THE DEAD. Post the run on your social media and help us get the word out.

Again this year - The race is an Official AJC Peachtree Road Race Qualifying Event. Course Certification #GA18043WC
