11th Annual Zombie Run

October 26, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

$15 – $35

Join us for the 11th Annual Traverse City Zombie Run, Saturday, October 27th, 2018

The Zombie Run has become a Traverse City Halloween tradition. What’s not to like? Zombies and beer have always been a winning combination.

Over the years we have seen zombies from all walks of life, or should I say death. Who will show up this year? The only thing we never saw was someone not having a great time! Right Brain Brewery will be hosting the run as always. The run wouldn’t be the same without our friends at the Brain, get it?

Stick around after the race for the medal ceremony and best costumes prizes. We may have a few other surprises as well. Plus the beer will be flowing, who says you can’t drink before noon? Besides, you’re already dead anyway!

Results and Timing Info
Results are available on your smartphone within minutes of finishing at www.rftiming.com/zombie. Searchable results will be available under Results on this website.

To help insure you will get an accurate finish time, please pin all four corners of the race number horizontally on the outside of any jacket or clothing on the front as close to the waist as possible. Water carriers or gel packs near the number can also affect the read. Wearing the number visibly on the front will insure a finish time.

Want to volunteer?
We are still looking for volunteers to manage the zombies horde! A volunteer party will be held on Thursday October 24th, 6 p.m. at Right Brain Brewery. Food and your first drink will be on us. Plus we will be giving out prizes! Click here to check out the volunteer opportunities!

This event will take place rain or shine, so dress appropriately. There is no gear check available at this event. The Zombie Run is not responsible for any lost items.

Dogs are welcomed and are encouraged to dress up. All dogs should be well socialized to people as well as other dogs. Dogs must be leashed at all times.
