It’s another Zombie Infestation! What are we going to do? We are going to Walk, Run, Creep and Crawl and anything else that gets us through the GEORGIA ZOMBIE FEST 5K AND 1 MILE FUN RUN!
New this year - We will have a DJ, and there will be a Zombie Response Unit Show in the Park (Jeep Show) and there will be a Costume Contest.
Join us on Saturday Evening October 12th where you will sign in and register 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 Drug Free Cherokee in 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
