About This Activity

The 5k Zombie Run will be held on Saturday March 19th 2016 at

Northwest Equestrian Park
9400 South Mobley Road
Odessa, FL 33556
(approx 1 Mile west of Gunn Hwy, just north of Citrus Park Mall)

If you were previously registered for the Tampa 2015 event that we were forced to postpone due to the sinkhole at Lake Park, you’ll be automatically transferred to the new March date & location – there is nothing you need to do for this to happen.

 

On March 19th, 2016, The 5k Zombie Run returns to Tampa for a fourth year!

Rate increases to $50 on 3/14. $60 on race day.

Run for your life from flesh hungry Zombies through a 3.1 mile trail run where ZOMBIES are the obstacles!

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

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/human)
                -Be a Zombie and pull the runners flags as they run through your "Zombie Zone"

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!
