More Information

Western Virginia Regional Jail in cooperation with Roanoke County Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, once again presents “Roanoke Zombie 5k” at Roanoke County’s Green Hill Park. The race is a fund-raiser for Special Olympics Virginia and all net proceeds will go directly to them! Media support is provided by CW5. Zombie Run is a 5K obstacle fun run for the end of times. But you’re not just running against the clock you are running from flesh-eating, virus-spreading, bloody zombies. Participants will use speed, agility, and their intact brains to overcome obstacles and avoid flesh-eating Zombies. Before the race, you will be given a flag belt. These flags represent your health. The zombies want to take your flags and maybe eat your brains. If you lose all your health flags, you die. And the zombies win. Throughout the 5K obstacle race, there will be a series of man-made and natural obstacles for you to complete. There will be zombies. Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flag belt. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags. Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE “alive” with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”. There will be a start line, and a finish line, but what happens in between is up to you. Choose both your strategy and how you finish the race wisely or you might not make it to the end “alive”. If you “survive’ you will be entered into a drawing for some great prizes.
