Blood & Guts Run
Most obstacle courses are challenging enough without adding the undead to the mix. During the approximately 5K Blood & Guts Run, however, that's exactly what participants get. As they go sprinting through the Virginia woods, they'll have to traverse gore-drenched hay bale pyramids, climbing walls, tire gauntlets, and cargo nets while brain-hungry zombies slog after them. These creatures don't just moan and move, though—they take aim at runners with water guns filled with fake blood, creating a crimson-tinged scene reminiscent of classic horror movies or particularly gruesome ketchup fights.
At the end of the course, runners will collect prizes for the most creative costumes before dancing to live music and DJ-spun tunes. A portion of the profits go towards The American Cancer Society, the Military and Veterans Association, and local school districts.
