The Running Dead Zombie Run

Saturday, October 28, 2 - 5 pm 
Frederick Recreation Area
8201 Colorado Blvd., Frederick


ALERT! The zombie infection is spreading and expected to hit Carbon Valley on October 28. The infected will be everywhere and your only chance of survival is to run for your life! 

A wave of humans equipped with flags will have one minute to run before a wave of zombies is released to capture their flags. Test your speed, endurance, and strength while trying to catch humans or outrun zombies around Milavec Lake and the Fox Run subdivision.

At the time of registration, select whether you'd like to be a human or a zombie. Everyone is encouraged to dress in costume for the event, humans and zombies.

This race is just shy of 5K and is not timed. All ages welcome but runners under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. 

It's more than a Zombie Run
If you don't want to run, bring your friends and family to watch the race and enjoy food and free activities include face painting, pumpkin painting, carnival games and more. It's sure to be fun for all ages! For more information call 303-833-3660.

Zombie Run Rules
Safety is the most important aspect of this event. Please follow the rules below to ensure a positive experience for yourself and others. 

    • Zombies may only grab one flag from each human
    • Human's must wear their flags on the outside of their waist band and should be visible at all times. They may not be hidden or tucked inside of clothing. This is a fun event, please don't cheat. 
    • Please practice good sportsmanship. Hitting, punching, grabbing, kicking, pushing, hurting, spitting, biting, throwing objects or any form of physical contact will not be tolerated. Runners who are caught doing this will be removed from the race without a refund. Zombies can go after humans' flags but cannot grab body parts, completely impeded passage, or tackle.
