Not Just Another Zombie Run
It’s only natural to worry a bit when zombies chase you—even when they’re fake zombies. Luckily, at Not Just Another Zombie Run, runners can exercise and mingle with the undead without ever having to run for their lives. Instead, they dress up in their best zombie or apocalypse survivor gear, then set out on their 5k in a collegial horde. Halfway through the outdoor run, they discover an Apocalyptic City, a complex of abandoned buildings and industrial gear. Special effects and resident zombies make this terrain extra spooky, but after runners dart through it, they don’t need to look over their shoulders. Nothing’s chasing them. They’re the chasers, chasing down a runner’s high and, ultimately, the finish line.
