Zombie Apocalypse 5k

When: Sun., Oct. 26, 3 p.m. 2014

The Jewish Community Center hosts its first-ever Zombie Apocalypse 5k run and walk. The event will begin at Camp Ruth, located in the wooded area behind the parking lot to the right of the front entrance. Teams of three will compete on a course filled with obstacles. At the start of the event, each team receives three flags – flags that hold a mysterious appeal for the “zombies” along the way, who will do whatever it takes to steal them. To complete and survive the race as humans, teams must have at least one flag at the finish; otherwise, players become zombies themselves. (Zombies are still welcome to purchase a JCC membership, by the by!) This event is creepy but also amazingly fun. The Zombie Apocalypse is for great for anyone, because it can be experienced as a walk or run, appropriate for everyone from beginners to fitness experts. This Zombie Apocalypse 5k costs $20, which must be paid in advance, just in case you don’t survive the zombies

Price: $20
