Packet Pick-Up: April 5 and 6 at Philadelphia Runner (1601 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103)
Age Limit None! If you’re old enough to run, then you’re old enough to run from zombies!!

We hope you’re a morning person, because the post apocalyptic playground you’re about to brave offers no protection.At the starting line, you’ll come across a flipped tanker, the source of the toxic compound. After the first kilometer, you’ll enter into a military-controlled apocalypse zone.Beware, this is where your dash from zombies will begin. Around kilometer 3, you’ll make it to a vaccination hydration center. The vaccine will fail, and you’ll have to continue to sprint from zombies. The last 2 kilometers are a free-for-all, as you charge towards freedom. Zombies are everywhere. Helicopters circle overhead and military personnel distribute facemasks for safety during your final steps.

Runners have the option of wearing a custom, latex free “life-balloon”. Our brain hungry zombies will try to pop your balloon and take your life before your reach the finish line. But if you’re not fast, don’t worry! Our course is designed like a zombie movie set, so if you don’t wear your balloon or survive the race, you’ll still have a spooky run. Dead or alive, all runners get to complete the entire course and attend the Quarantine Party.


Are you ready to run? Register as an individual for $45 or as part of a team of 4+ humans for $40 per runner. In addition to the full-out apocalypse, runners will receive:

Official Zombie Run t-shirt
Zombie Run eco-water bottle
Admission to the Quarantine Party


Don’t want to run from them? Become one. For $25, you can register to be an Official Zombie Run zombie and receive:

Gory, movie-quality zombie makeover
Exclusive zombie gear
Admittance to the Quarantine Party


After you make it through the infestation of zombies during the race, you’ll enter the Quarantine Party. There will be a local DJ, food trucks, a zombie makeover station, photo stations to take pictures with our scariest zombies, and a store to pick up some merchandise. We’ll have Zombie Mummers, some famous Philadelphian zombies, and free beer (for those humans and zombies old enough to drink!) Zombies love beer.
