Escape the Walkers: A 5K Zombie Mud Run raises hairs and gets pulses racing with a mud-caked course festooned with challenging obstacles overrun by the living dead. Race participants sign up as zombies or test their bravery as runners, who wear six “life flags” that zombies try to snatch in their cold, dead hands. Runners can participate in groups or take their chances alone; survivors will receive faux gold medallions, and casualties are awarded tinfoil medals. When the dust settles, zombies and humans set aside their differences and enjoy an after-the-apocalypse party with music and other entertainment.
Waves of around 250 race participants begin at 8:00 a.m., and launch every half-hour. The last wave begins at 10:30 a.m. Check out the race’s rules and additional information here.
By hosting haunted houses and spooky events, The Slaughterhouse has raised more than $40,000 for organizations such as the American Diabetes Association. Visitors interested in befriending the venue’s mischievous specters can embark on ghost tours, which explore the premise’s haunted depths. Alternatively, on-the-go partiers can select from a rental fleet of trailers packed with haunted-house-style frights or sound-system-equipped hearses, ideal for proving coolness to judgmental teenage vampires.
