The family-friendly fun run takes place Saturday, October 24. The first wave of runners sets out at 3 p.m., with additional waves heading out until 5:30 p.m. The all-terrain course is populated by manmade obstacles and a horde of zombies, who attempt to grab flags from the flag-football belts worn by runners. Participants who cross the finish line with at least one flag left have survived, while those without flags have succumbed to the zombie virus.
Afterward, they can toast their status at a party with live music, food, and drinks. The race proceeds benefit NMX and Warehouse 508, which provide youth programs in Albuquerque.
According to the research of nonprofit organization NMX, 90% of kids want to try extreme sports. But how many actually get the opportunity? Just 20%. The expenses and time associated with sports such as skiing, snowboarding, and skateboarding mean many kids never get a shot at the slopes or half-pipes, but NMX seeks to change that. Through getaways and retreats, workshops, fundraising 5Ks, and other organized events, the 501(c)(3) opens the heart-racing world of extreme sports up to brave youngsters with a variety of backgrounds.
