Runners trek along a challenging 5k course filled with mud, hills, winding trails, obstacles, and zombies. On October 27 runners and zombie entries will receive an event T-shirt, a goodie bag, a free beer, and eligibility for fantastic prizes. After the race, runners and zombies will gather for music, cold beer, prizes and undead camaraderie. Racers must register by October 24. Sign-in begins at 7 a.m., and the race starts in waves every 30 minutes between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run
The D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run challenges its participants to think the unthinkable: “Could I survive a zombie apocalypse?” Throughout the 5K mud-slicked course, only the savviest runners will maintain their humanity, dodging hordes of the undead and navigating strength- and agility-testing obstacles. Runners start with three flags that represent their life force. Those who can keep at least one flag safe from the zombies’ corpsey clutches remain human, and those who lose them all make the harrowing transformation into a brain-hungry zombie. But the D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run is more than a grueling race; it’s also an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the largest zombie gathering on Earth.
After the race, every participant’s name is entered in a drawing for the grand prize—a trip for two to Las Vegas—and event hosts dole out speed prizes to those with at least one flag remaining. Zombies also compete for a set of undead awards and strut very, very slowly in a zombie beauty pageant.
