The Zombie Mud Run is the most amazing, heart pounding, adrenaline producing mud run you’ve ever experienced! The race course is complete with natural and man-made obstacles. To add an extra degree of challenge (and fun), we have added Zombies! You may sign up as a Human or a Zombie. The Humans run the race with a flag football belt. These three flags represent your vital organs. Zombies are stationed along the race course trying to eat your vital organs (capture your flags). If you finish the race with one or more of your flags, you survive. If Zombies capture all of your flags, you are infected with the living dead virus (or at least don’t win the race). Whether you survive or get infected, you are guaranteed to have a great time at the all-day Human Salvation Party!
