Zombie Run: A Zombie 5K Race! I just love these races! I will be doing the one in Indy with my (by then) 5 year old son, since I live here, but you should find one near you and sign up! He is the one who talked me into finding a zombie race that he could sign up for! Here is the basic run down. Zombies run after humans, or stand there and try to grab balloons while humans run past them. Humans run from, around and away from zombies. Everybody goes to the afterparty.

As a human contestant in the Zombie Run, you will run through 5 zones of 1K each with zombies in pursuit. Each zone will be populated with more zombies than the one before, and will feature bizarre and unexpected events and elements.You may choose to wear a latex-free “Life Balloon,” which zombies will try to pop. There is no reward for keeping your life and no penalty for losing it. Everyone can finish the race.

We plan on running as humans because my son wants to “fight” the zombies and “run from” them,  but you can also choose to participate as a zombie! Here is what you need to know for that side.

Show up 2 hours before race time to receive your free zombie makeover (blood will wash out of clothing, hair and skin) and Zombie training. You will be assigned to one of five zones within the 5K course. You and your fellow walking corpses will be driven to your zone by bus.Your job is to chase the humans, pop their balloons and terrorize them respectfully. In a successful Zombie Run, everyone dies, but no one gets hurt.

Even the apocalypse has an After Party. All are invited and admission is free for all participants and spectators.

    • Zombie Jams—live DJ spinning dance music
    • Snacks, refreshments and beer (where available) will be sold
    • $10 Movie-quality zombie makeovers available
    • Zombie Run merchandise—caps, shirts, water bottles and more
    • Sponsor tents, partner tents for hospitality

My son is SUPER excited to run this race and win. If we finish the race we win, if we finish with a balloon we win more. No one loses unless you quit. That is what we say before races. If we finish we win!

I have a feeling no one will take his last balloon though…I mean he is really young and adorable for a race like this lol.

So choose your side and sign up! If you run with your kids feel free to send me pics! They may end up in my After the race post (if you are ok with that of course). zombierun2

  1. This is definitely one that my family would like! My husband and I have done the Run for Your Lives and our son has been wanting to go to one. This one sounds very kid friendly and would be perfect! I will look for it to come to Texas!
