Run for your Life! Zombie 5k

Springport Schools, Springport Mi
Run for Your Life! Zombie 5k is not an average race. It is a completely off road (mostly grass) course that has hills and corners where Zombies will lurk. Humans will be loaned a belt with “life flags” which Zombies will attempt to steal throughout the course. Armed with only your wits, speed, agility, and health belt you will race to stay alive (keep your flags). Even if you lose all your flags do not worry, you can still finish the race and participate in the aftermath festivities.

You do not have to run. You can walk, gallop, mosey or sashay to your doom, um we mean finish. There’s no official time clock, no winner but they’re your brains.
