It takes motivation to run a 5K, and there are few things as inspiring than a horde of brain-slurping zombies on your tail. In the pulse-pumping scareathon of Undead Unleashed, contestants run across a series of harrowing obstacles as decayed-looking antagonists descend on them like personal trainers, except with rigor mortis. Equipped with three precious flags, participants ages 14 and older must make it through the course without getting them jacked by the flag-stealing zombies. Anyone who makes it across Malden Park's scenic, yet harrowing real estate with any flags intact is a winner and gets to capture their victory in a photo as a "survivor." Those who lose all their flags can still finish, but get a photo op as "zombie meat." The race also makes it easy to show how much heart you've got while keeping it inside your chest: proceeds from the fun run benefit local charities.
