A portion of the profits go towards the Susan G. Komen Foundation’s Virginia and Maryland chapter.
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 rock walls, spider webs, bloody beams, the wall of death, a tire gauntlet and more, 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, including custom-made t-shirts, for the most creative costumes in a few categories before dancing to DJ-spun tunes. The event also includes a beer garden, food trucks, and zumba.
