First Annual Zombie Run Scheduled in Downtown Greensboro For November 3, 2012

Greensboro, NC—Get ready to run with the walking dead! The Greensboro Zombie Run, a new event, is a two-mile race slated for Downtown Greensboro on November 3rd.  The race is modeled after flag football and intended to be a fun event for all ages including children. The Run starts and ends at Hamburger Square in Downtown Greensboro, where runners have a chance to prove they can survive this exciting, fun version of the zombie apocalypse.

The event will feature one hundred zombies positioned throughout the two mile course. Spectators are welcome to enjoy the spectacle as zombies chase runners in an epic struggle for survival.

There will be live music and an after-party to follow the race which is open to the public at Hamburger Square Park (corner of S. Elm & McGee Street).  Proceeds will benefit a newly established chapter of Ignite the Spirit. This charity supports local firefighters and their families by providing assistance to their brothers and sisters who have fallen on the job.

Greensboro Zombie Run organizer, Nick Loflin, says “It will be the best run of your life or if you’re a zombie… afterlife, guaranteed.”

An early bird discount and deadline has been extended to Monday, September 17th.  Midnight. Runners will receive a t-shirt, beer/root beer voucher, snacks and a medal at the race finish.
