Choose Between Two Options
- $48 for race entry as runner ($75 value)
- $11 for race entry as zombie ($20 value)
The race takes place at Piedmont Park on October 31.
Runners equipped with a belt and three “life flags” zip through the 5K course while zombies attempt to steal their flags. The goal is to complete the course with at least one life flag, but even if they lose all their flags, they can still get a medal upon completion of the race.
Those who wish to participate as a zombie will be assigned to one of many zones within the course. They must show up to the race already in their costumes and makeup. Once the race starts and they go into “zombie mode,” they will only have two working limbs of their choice. Zombies are not allowed to chase runners or make contact with them, but they are encouraged to scare them.
A postrace party with food trucks and beer follows. Runners who make it to the finish line alive receive a “survivor” medal. Those who “die” along the way receive an “infected” medallion.
Zombie Run Atlanta
It's a dark time. The entire world has been overrun with zombies, and even the military and CDC—two government entities sworn to protect the people—have been infected by the virus. Though located in a major metropolis and only a few miles away from the CDC's headquarters, Atlanta's Piedmont Park is inexplicably the last known place on the planet that has uninfected humans.
That's about to change. There may be a safe zone located right across Charles Allen Drive and an alleged 3.1-mile trail from the survivors' base camp to the safe zone, but that trail is riddled with obstacles, including infected mazes, walls that must be climbed, and, of course, dozens of terrifying zombies. Those who hope to survive must outrun the undead and make it to the Charles Allen Drive finish line, where food and brews replenish everyone's spirits.
