Saturday, October 25, 2014 -- Fairchance, PA / Fairchance Fire Hall 31 Pittsburgh St Fairchance, PA 15436
2nd Annual Nightmare 5K Zombie Run/Walk (iPO Event Id#: 15389)

[Overall Results] [Results by Class]

This event is a 5K run/walk with a twist! Zombies! There will be 4 areas along the course where race participants may encounter 1 or 2 zombies which will attempt to remove their flags. Last year's race was a great time and we received tremendous positive feedback. We have improved the event this year by reducing the number of zombies and have added the competitive walk. We will have food and prizes!

Zombie Challenge

The 5K race also includes an optional "Zombie Challenge", in which participants dodge zombies while they run/walk the 5K. To participate in the "Zombie Challenge", racers are given a flag belt to be worn around the waist. (Flag belts must be returned after the race.) Zombies will attempt to pull the flags off the belt as you pass them. Participants with flags remaining receive a ticket(s) at the finish line to be entered into prize drawings. Participants without flag belts are understood not to be participating in the "Zombie Challenge" and will be ignored by the zombies on the course. Race results are not affected by participation in the "Zombie Challenge" or the number of flags remaining on their belt.

Zombie Challenge Rules:

  • Do not touch zombies. They will not touch you.
  • Do not hide your flags from the zombies.
  • Please stay on the course and do not enter private property.
  • If at any time, you do not want to participate in the Zombie Challenge, remove your flag belt and hand it to course volunteers.
  • Race results will not be affected by number of flags remaining.
  • Participants with flags remaining will receive a ticket(s) at the finish line to be entered into prize drawings.

  • The supply of flag belts is limited, so guarantee your spot in the Zombie Challenge by registering today.
