The 2019 Zombie Run will be Saturday October 19th.

Tangle With Zombies is a 5K trail race. But you’re not running against the clock — you’re running from brain-hungry, virus-spreading, bloody zombies.

Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the overly intimidating game of flag football. These flags represent your health. The zombies want to take your flags and maybe eat your brains. If you lose all your health flags, you die. And the zombies win.

Health flag bonuses will be hidden throughout the course. If you find one, attach it and carry it to the finish, it will save your life.

There will be zombies. Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flag belt. They are not allowed to touch you in any other way, and you are not allowed to come into contact with them. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags.

Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE “alive” with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”; you will have finished a run, but you will not be admired by other competitors and spectators.

There will be a start line, and a finish line, but what happens in between is up to you.
