3rd Annual 5K Zombie Run for Charity

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 3rd ANNUAL 5K ZOMBIE RUN FOR CHARITY which will be held in  Downtown Mount Airy, NC. 

100% of the event proceeds will be going to the 
Shepherd's House Shelter and the Museum of Regional History in Mount Airy, NC.

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." Zombies will scare you but NOT touch you.

In order to qualify for a prize at the end of the race, you must finish the course with all 3 flags "lives." Humans will be given this prize at the finish line when they show that all 3 flags  are still attached to their Velcro belts. Chances are, you will not be turned into a zombie...if you're lucky.

Race awards will be given to the fastest overall and age group finishers.

Victims, er...humans will start running for their lives on Willow Street near the corner of Willow and Oak Streets in front of the old Spencer's building and the Renfro and Spencer Lofts. They will turn left onto Independence Avenue and then head straight into the zombie hive on the Emily B. Taylor section of the Granite City Greenway behind Renfro and Choice Physical Therapy.  At the end of the greenway, able humans will travel up West Lebanon Street, turn right on Willow Street and follow Willow Street all the way to the finish line in the same place as the start. A course map is available on MapMyRun and on the 'Courses & Maps' link above right.
