Running Dead Zombie Mud Run

As runners of the Running Dead Zombie Mud Run compete to beat their best 5K times, a terrifying cast of undead actors emerges on the trail to help put a scary spring in their steps. Clad in tattered clothing, gory makeup, and decaying accessories, the zombies shamble after runners navigating the course’s military-style training obstacles, mud pits, and blood cannons. Instead of trying to slow their prey down, the zombies reach their clutching hands toward at flags attached to runners’ belts. If the flags—which symbolize brains or newly established micronations—are still on runners’ belts at the end of the race, they can celebrate an additional, more personal victory: survival.

A portion of proceed will benefit Inalliance. Inalliance has been serving people with developmental disabilities and their families since 1952.
