More about this year’s event:
What type of run is this?
The Survive Alive 5k Run and Park Walk is designed to be an event that has something for almost everyone. The timed run will kick off in Garvin Park and loop out through the greenway and back. The untimed park walk will take in the amazing fall scene inside the park. Along both courses participants will encounter Zombies who will try to steal their humanity tag. Serious runners, don’t worry — it’s not going to be an obstacle course. Our zombies have been trained to be sneaky and not to get in your way.
Are you going to try to scare people?
Just a little… Our zombies are mostly for atmosphere. This isn’t a haunted house event, and we want it to be family friendly.
Are the zombies going to touch me?
The zombies along the main event course will try to steal your humanity tag, but aren’t going to physically grab anyone.
Is this an obstacle run?
No. Our zombies have been trained to be sneaky and not to get in the way of serious runners concentrating on making their time.
What is TOUCH INC.?
