GOODWILL RUNNING DEAD 5K
Oct

11:15 AM11:15

GOODWILL RUNNING DEAD 5K

Chase or be chased, you choose. Register as an individual or teams of Humans, Zombies, or Placed Zombies. Placed Zombies don’t run, they are hiding on the course to steal flags*. Humans get an advanced start on running zombies but will encounter “placed” zombies who will be coming out of hiding at various spots along the 5K course! Humans strive to keep at least one flag at the finish line to compete for Ultimate Survivor for title and prizes. Zombies are vying to grab as many flags as possible in quest to be named King of the Zombies and snatch up the top prize at the Apocalypse Party.

The Running Dead 5K is a charity event to benefit Goodwill’s job training programs in the Southern Oregon region including Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake counties and Siskiyou County in California.

It’s NOT a timed event, but an experience. The 5K is open to ages 9 and up. It is a non-violent, just-for-fun race. The only grabbing on the course will be for flags — for safety reasons no strollers, bikes, skateboards, or other wheeled equipment is permitted for runners.

The 5K course will culminate with the Apocalypse Party for runners, their supporters and general public at Common Block Brewing Co. The party features music, contests, prizes, food, beverages, vendors, games and contests.
