The Zombies Are Coming 5K Run

Mount Airy, NC

Miss Angel's Heavenly Pies Inc., Hillbilly Gluten Free Bake Shop and Creamery, and Miss Angel's Pick Your Own Country Farms is sponsoring the 2nd Annual 5K Zombie Run for Charity

How it works:
Escape the zombies trying to take your life as you run along the new 5K race course!

At the start of the race, all humans will be given a race "life" belt with 3 Velcro flags attached.  Zombies along the course will try to take the human flags, or "lives."

In order to qualify for a prize at the end of the race, you must finish the course with at least 1 flag "life." Humans will be given a prize at the finish line based on the number of flags that are still attached to their Velcro belts. Chances are, you will not be turned into a zombie...

Race awards will be given to the fastest finishers.

100% of the proceeds will be going to these charities:
  • Shepherd's House Shelter, Mount Airy, NC
  • Mayberry 4 Paws Animal Rescue, Mount Airy, NC
  • Surry Animal Rescue, Dobson, NC

Important Parking and Starting Line information!
Parking is very limited at Creek Bottom Brewery. To get to the starting line, enter from the South Street back entrance. Parking is available at the Northern Hospital Parking Lot in the vacant spaces off South Street and across at the Mt. Airy Family Restaurant at the corner of Worth Street and Hwy 52. Worth Street will be closed to thru traffic by 5:45PM for the race, so get parked early to have time to walk to the start and get your packet. There is no connection to Creek Bottom Brewery from the Greenway, so if you park at Mt. Airy Family Restaurant you will need to walk up Worth Street, turn right on South Street, and turn right again into the paved back road that leads to the back of Creek Bottom Brewery and the Starting Line.
