Step into a post apocalyptic time where zombies walk the Earth.  Everyone must race for their lives to outrun these flesh-eating creatures.  Gather your family and friends as there's no time to wait!  We must save the human race!


The Zombie Fun Run/5K at the Creek is a 5K course on the campus of Gray's Creek High School.  A portion of the course passes through a wooded area.  Participants have the option of choosing the 5K Run or the 3K Fun Run.  The 5K Run is for the avid runners who focus on racing their best time.  The 3K Fun Run is a 3K race which welcomes students, families and joggers of all ages.  You can walk or run  in this event.


In the 3K Fun Run, participants will wear a "life belt" with 3 flags.  Zombies will attempt to snatch one of your flags as you pass by.  If you finish the race with at least 1 flag, you will be considered a "Survivor."  If you have no flags left, you will be considered "Infected."  The zombies will be trained not to be aggressive but to gently pull your flag.  Stay alert so you can protect your life lines!


Costume Contest:  All participants are encouraged to wear their best apocalyptic human or zombie costume during the event!  A prize will be awarded to the best dressed in each of these categories. No plastic or real weapons please!


Awards Ceremony:  At the conclusion of the 3K Fun Run, there will be an awards ceremony  in which the top race times in the 5K and the "best dressed" apocalyptic human and zombie will be recognized (approximately 11:00 a.m.)


Race Day:  Please arrive 1 hour prior to your race time.  Depending on the speed of the runners, your race could begin a little before or after the stated start time.  The GCHS theater students will entertain you with skits, games, and activities for the whole family!  Themed t-shirts and refreshments will be available for purchase.  Even if you are not running in the event, you are welcome to come out and enjoy the morning with us!
