Eat or be eaten in this challenging 5k race for supper or survival. RUN for dear life as zombies hunt you like the meaty prey you or get infected and chase down your dinner in the Zombie Mud Run on September 27th.
The obstacles include huge sand mounds, slides, and “quicksand” pits. The course will have a combination of both natural and manmade obstacles that go running through the ocean and under the boardwalk to the deep, dark, recesses of the unknown and down Morey’s Piers’ famed 50 feet tall six-lane water slide – WipeOut!. Adding another element of adventure, this year’s course will include a ride on Morey’s Great White wooden roller coaster. *Must meet all safety and height requirements to ride.
During the race, “Humans” will wear a flag football belt with three flags, representing their vital organs, which “Zombies” will try to “eat” by capturing the flags. Whether you survive or get infected, everyone is welcome to join the fun at the all day human survival beach party which features music, and a variety of food and beverages available for purchase.
To participate as a “Human” or “Zombie,” runners must be at least 13 years of age or older. The price of registration ranges from $41.00 to $91.00 depending on the running category. Special student and military pricing is available.
