From Our Editors

In order to escape a pack of zombies, it’s helpful to know the strengths and weaknesses of each cannibal in the horde. DFW Zombie Run equips its participants with this type of knowledge, as well as the training that may be necessary for survival in the unlikely event of a zombie apocalypse.

During DFW Zombie Run’s obstacle runs, four types of zombies chase down racers, trying to snag the four health flags worn on the racers’ belts. Among zombies, there are walkers, who “simply walk around looking for an easy meal,” and then there are runners, who are “starving, ferocious, and incredibly fast,” according to the site. Transition zombies occupy the middle ground: they may look like harmless, sleep-deprived milkmaids, but can be unexpectedly triggered to hunt viciously like their runner brethren. Finally, there are creepers who lurk in narrow spaces.

As runners traverse 3K, 5K, or 7K obstacle courses, they dodge all types of zombies in a quest to keep their health flags and gain eligibility for cash prizes. Zombies and racers only interact via flag—there’s no other touching allowed. Zombies are limited to snagging one flag per runner, and runners are limited to using their feet and hands for locomotion.

According to founder Jeff, a passion for “amusement parks, thrill rides, and fitness” inspired the creation of DFW Zombie Run. He also cited “a love for action, adventure, and horror movies.”
