The Indee Zombie Run offers a fun and challenging 5k experience. Runners will be completing obstacles along the course as well as dodging zombies trying to capture their ""life"" flags. Each runner begins the course with 2 ""life"" flags and their goal is to make it all the way to the finish line with at least 1 ""life"" left.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Buchanan County Fair Grounds and the Independence Area Chamber of Commerce to support various community events both entities put on every year as well as some of their other initiatives.
The race is open to anyone 14 years or older. There will be restrooms on site as well as a rinse off station. Participants can also store their gear in the 4-H Building while they compete.
We do not have a team option when registering, but we encourage you to run in a pack as a survival strategy!
