Zombie-Infested 5K Charity Run
Calling all Walking Dead fans! 5KRunDead is a national zombie-infested charity 5K fun run happening in five cities across the US. All proceeds will benefit local schools and scientific research on cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Why zombies and why now? Because, zombies love brains and so do we. Only you can help stop the spread of diseases like Alzheimer’s by supporting this family-friendly event, coming to Willow Park in Bennington, Vt., on Saturday, October 11. Register your team online at
Runners will endure a 5K run through a zombie-infested course. Test your speed, endurance and strength while trying to avoid ravenous zombies. Runners will have flags that represent their health. Zombies will try to steal those flags. Runners must make it to the finish line with at least one flag or become one of the walking dead! Prizes will be awarded.
Zombies and spectators can get painted and transformed into zombies by on-site makeup artists. There will be live music, food vendors, and we will be showing ‘Zombieland,’ a fun zombie-themed movie outdoors afterwards. Bring your chairs and blankets. The gates open at 2 p.m. For a full schedule, email [email protected]
