Zombies tap into humanity's two greatest human fears: wandering aimlessly through life among the equally forsaken masses, and fire. Run away with this Groupon.
$39 for Entry to 5K Race ($79 Value)
Starting at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 17, racers scramble through 5 whole K’s of mad-capped zombie mayhem. Runners negotiate obstacles that pepper the dirt paths of Cedar Hills State Park while trying to protect their attached flag. Live music from DJ Hoss and Le Freak pulses through the post-race party, and of-age racers also receive one free beer.
Each entry includes a T-shirt, race bib, flag-football belt, and water bottle; however, a $7 state park entry fee is not included in this Groupon. For more information, see the info page and the FAQs.
Walking Dead Run 5k Adventure Race
While some runners run for glory, self-discovery, or a personal best, participants in the Walking Dead Run 5k Adventure Race run for their lives. Guests surmount obstacles and duck and weave down dirt paths as they try to protect an affixed flag from two types of zombies: Stumblers and Chasers. The former ambles menacingly, and the latter sprints; both types sport grotesque makeup and drip fake blood as they hunt racers, trying to tear the flags from their flag-football belts. At the untimed race’s finish line, participants dust themselves off before a post-race party, complete with beer, food, and live music. Proceeds from the race go toward supporting the North Texas Food Bank.
