7th Annual Traverse City Zombie Run - 5K Walk/Run
Join us for the Seventh Annual Traverse City Zombie Run, Saturday, October 31st, 2015.
The Zombie Run has become a Traverse City Halloween tradition. What's not to like? Zombies and beer have always been a winning combination.
Over the years we have seen zombies from all walks of life, or should I say death. There have been Elvis zombies, beauty pageant zombies, and even the Village People zombies. Who will show up this year? The only thing we never saw was someone not having a good time! Right Brain Brewery will host the Zombie Run once again this year. The run wouldn't be the same without our friends at the Brain, get it?
Stick around after the race for the medal ceremony and best costumes prizes. We may have a few other surprises as well. Plus the beer will be flowing, who says you can't drink before noon? Besides, you’re already dead anyway!

Results and Timing Info
Results are available on your smartphone within minutes of finishing at www.rftiming.com/zombie. Searchable results will be available at: http://rftiming.racetecresults.com/results.aspx?CId=16365&RId=157
To help insure you will get an accurate finish time, please pin all four corners of the race number horizontally on the outside of any jacket or clothing on the front as close to the waist as possible. Water carriers or gel packs near the number can also affect the read. Wearing the number visibly on the front will insure a finish time.
Want to volunteer?
We are still looking for volunteers to manage the zombies! A volunteer party will be held at 7pm on Monday, October 26th at Right Brain Brewery. Click here to check out the volunteer oportunities!
