Zombie Run 2014

Saturday, October 18, 6 p.m. | Downtown Bend, Oregon.

It’s time to take a stand.

The Bend Zombie Run presented by Widmer Brothers and 10 Barrel Brewing, pits survivors against zombies during this apocalyptic 5K race starting at the Bellatazza Plaza downtown on Wall Street.

Participants pick their poison – zombie or survivor – then race to the finish to see who makes it out alive (or undead).

How it works:

Survivors start first, but will encounter puzzle stops along the course that slow them down and will make them vulnerable to the zombies who are chasing them. The Zombies will start after the survivors and follow their trail. All will be racing towards sweet victory at the post-apocalyptic party.

Survivors carry blood-red flags and only stay “alive” if they hold onto the flags that the zombies hope to grab from them as they chase them down over the course of the 5k race.

Prizes will be given to the top men and women survivors who finish with their flags, and the zombies with the most captured flags arriving soonest. Prizes will also be given to the survivors and zombies with the best costumes.

The mayhem of the Zombie Run presented by Widmer Brothers and 10 Barrel Brewing begins at 6 p.m. on October 18 in downtown Bend. Registration is $25 and includes Widmer and 10 Barrel beer at the post-apocalyptic party.  Day-of registration will be $35.
