If you enjoy heart-pounding runs and racing through obstacles, then The Field of Screams 5K Zombie Fun Run is for you! Gather your friends and experience the thrill of running a 5K while being chased by zombies through Field of Screams!
This amazing route will take you right through America’s #1 Haunted Attraction. You will run through parts of our world renowned Haunted Hayride, The Horrifying Den of Darkness Haunted Mansion, and the Creepy Backwoods of The Nocturnal Wasteland. Run, jump, climb, and crawl over natural and man-made obstacles while making your way through packs of hungry zombies.
Each runner will be given a belt with 3 flags on it; each flag represents a life. The goal is to protect these lives from the zombies who are trying to steal them. If you can cross the finish line with at least one life remaining you have "survived." Crossing the finish line with no flags remaining means you have been "infected."
This is not a timed event and all runners will receive a medal at the finish line. Will yours say "Survivor" or "Infected?" The race is on, and there's no telling what you might encounter!
Will you survive the Zombie Apocalypse?
