Choose from Three Options
- $39 for one Groupon, good for 5K race registration as a zombie or a human ($85 value)
- $75 for two Groupons, each good for 5K race registration as a zombie or a human ($170 total value)
- $20 for one Groupon, good for The Zombie Mud Run Junior for ages 12 and younger as a zombie or a human ($45 value)
Adults participating in the 5K ally themselves with the humans, who must escape the zombies by racing through mud and obstacles, or the zombies, who chase the humans. Kids participating in the junior race also side themselves with the zombies or humans. They run or walk the same 5K course as the adults with a parent present, and can skip any obstacles they choose.
Both races take place Saturday, November 1. Gates open at 7 a.m., and the 5K race begins in half-hour waves from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The junior race starts at 12:30 p.m. Everyone receives a shirt, finisher’s medal, and beverage. See more information.
The Zombie Mud Run
The Zombie Mud Run finally gives people an incentive to exercise—the survival of their species. Amid forested trails, muddy creeks, and challenging obstacles, participants of this post-apocalyptic 5K face off to either save the human race or feast on human flesh, respectively. Clad in a flag-football belt with three flags that represent their brains, heart, and entrails, human participants race to get themselves and their fellow living athletes to the Green Zone, which grants salvation in the form of food, water, music, and beer. Meanwhile, costumed zombies—each of whom are either slow-moving “creepers” or fast-moving “leapers”—positioned along the race course pursue the humans to devour their organs or simply return that contact lens they dropped a mile ago. Human runners who reach the Green Zone with at least one of their flags survive.
