continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate
courage, experience joy, and participate in a sharing of skills and
friendship with their families, Special Olympics athletes and the

runner will start off with a flag belt and three flags. These flags
represent your lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will be
attempting to take these one at a time. If you finish the race with at
least one flag, you've survived, BUT if zombies have taken all your
flags you can complete the race, but will not be eligible for awards
Individuals can participate as either runners or zombies.
Will you be a runner or a fresh kill? (zombie) or both! You can start out as a runner and end up just another fresh kill of the Zombies.. The 5k
course is through a summer camp where the first infections of a zombie
virus began. Staten Island has been Shut Down! All the bridges are
closed the ferry has stopped running and the last Oasis for FOOD, DRINK
and the best Dead Mans BBQ in history is taking place just a quick Zombie
infested 3.1 miles away.. Will you make it there alive or as a fresh
kill? Either way first beer is on us..
For runners: there will be two flights for runners. A competitive
flight, "Fast Food" and a non-competitive flight, "All You Can Eat".
Each runner will receive access to the course, race day festivities and
an official rUNDEAD race day t-shirt. Runners can sign up as individuals
or as teams.

our "mob Tent" the day of the event from 7:30am-9am. Bring your own
attire and let us make you into the undead. Each zombie receives their
