Zombie Fright Run 5K
October 13, 2012
You’ll need endurance, stamina and quick wits to survive this 5K - your life depends on it!
Join us on October 13th for Zombie Fright Run, where you’re not only overcoming hair raising obstacles; you’re also racing from blood thirsty, flesh eating, brain sucking ZOMBIES.
How it Works
Your primary goal is simple – don’t die! Your secondary goal is to cross the finish line alive in our zombie infested 5K race.
Before the race you will be given a flag belt with three flags. These flags represent your health. It is your goal to finish the race with at least 1 flag. It is the zombies goal to take all of your flags and maybe a limb or two. Just like in a video game, once all 3 of your flags are gone, you “die”; which means that you must suffer the shame and embarrassment of knowing that you’re not fit enough to survive a real zombie apocalypse.
In the event you lose all three lives, you will still be able to complete the course and receive an official Zombie Fright Run 5K medal. Regardless of race outcome, all participants and spectators are invited to spend the day at Six Flags New England (with purchase or race entry or spectator ticket).
