Participants can choose to be a runner, starting the race with three flags on a belt that zombies attempt to snatch throughout the course, or a zombie. Those who choose to represent the undead can be hunters, allowed to chase runners for a short distance, or crawlers, who can walk, stumble, shuffle, or band together with other crawlers. If a runner finishes the race with at least one flag, they’ve survived. All flags or no flags, all runners are permitted to finish the course, and both a competitive and non-competitive flight is offered. The event takes place on October 22, 2016.

Zombies have evolved a lot since their days as the slow, lumbering hulks in George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead. rUNDEAD capitalizes on this fact, populating 5K courses throughout New York State with physically fit zombies waiting to chase unsuspecting participants. Some courses will have color bombs to signify that runners have been caught by one of the walking corpses, while others may have flags.
But don't let the delightfully morbid theme fool you—these events are family-friendly gatherings that raise money for the Special Olympics New York Incorporated. They even feature plenty of kid-centric activities, such as pumpkin decorating and face painting.
