Course Description:

5K runners and walkers will be given 3 life strips to insert into their waist band. Please TUCK the shirts so the life strips are clearly visible (yes, there are rules when it comes to this zombie event). If you prefer not to be chased by zombies, you may run without life strips. The 5K course will be clearly marked with arrow signs and volunteers at key intersections. The beginning of the race meanders by a babbling brook otherwise known as the Grand River. Zombies are only allowed to scare participants on the Riverwalk. There are two 'feed zones' on the 5K route where slow moving zombies will try to take your life strips. An aid station with is located just before the first 'Feed Zone' on Front Street. Beware of debris on Front Street. You will be required to run on Front Street past Sixth Street and run to turnaround about 1/4 mile away. Sixth Street Bridge is a 'No Scare Zone'. Shortly after the bridge you will head north into Canal park into the last 'Feed Zone.' Upon finishing in Sixth Street Park, your life strips will be counted (if you have any left), and you will have one minute for each remaining life strip deducted from your total time. If all your life strips are taken, you are not disqualified.

Aid Stations:

No aid stations will be available


We would encourage you to invite friends and family to watch the race. We will post race maps so spectators know your route. There is no cost to spectate.


We have permission to park in the parking lot across the RVC Offices on Saturday night. This lot is between Front and Scribner, south of 6th Street. Please enter/exit on Scribner as Front will be blocked off for the race. Thank you for your generocity RVC!


We give a portion of our profits to Versiti Blood Stem Cell Programs.
Walkers, if you plan to participate in the Zombie Dash, please be near the start at 6:45 so you finish the course before the cutoff. Please walk single file where the route is narrow, such as on the Riverwalk and sidewalks, especially when you hear approaching runners.
We will race rain or shine… or snow. In the event of a thunderstorm, tornado, or freak lake-effect blizzard, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. Find secure shelter if severe weather occurs before, during or after the event. We will not be able to reschedule on a different date due to over $7,000 in costs (police, road closure crew, permits, ambulance, timing etc.) we would have to pay again. We will do everything we can do get the race complete that evening. Please bring rain gear and umbrellas if necessary.
