Colchester has been taken over by zombies! Can you out run them? Join us for the first ever Colchester Parks & Recreation Zombie Fun Run on October 23rd! Put your zombie apocalypse skills to the test and see if you can survive running a 5K course through the zombie infested woods. Cross the finish line with your flags remaining and you'll be a survivor, but lose those flags and become one of the infected!
This is just like any other 5K run, except you will be trying to avoid ZOMBIES! Each participant will receive a belt with flags that you will have to try and keep away from the dead while running through the woods. Successfully finish the course with flags remaining and you will receive a 'survivor' prize. However, loose them all and you will receive the 'infected' prize.
This race is meant to be a spooky fun time, so we encourage coming in costumes! However, please choose costumes other than zombies, so your fellow runners are not confused.
