The Running Dead 5K is a charity event to benefit Goodwill’s job training programs in the Southern Oregon region including Douglas, Jackson, Josephine, Klamath and Lake counties and Siskiyou county in CA.

It’s NOT a timed event, but an experience set to begin at dusk. Zombies can be a bit scary so this is a 12 and over event. It is a non-violent, just-for-fun race. The only grabbing on the course will be for flags — for safety reasons no strollers, bikes, skateboards, or other wheeled equipment is permitted for runners.

The 5K course will culminate with the Apocalypse Party for runners, their supporters and general public at Common Block Brewing Company. The party features music, contests, prizes, food, beverage, vendor, games and contests.

How It Works

If you register as a human, your ultimate goal is to cross the finish line with at least one “life” remaining — you start with a belt with three flags. Humans who survive with one flag will be quarantined and will vie for King of the Survivors. If you sign on as a running zombie, your aim is to collect as many lives (flags) as you can for the purpose of becoming King of the Zombies at the after-party, the Apocalypse Party at Common Block Brewing Company.

It’s an event like no other in Southern Oregon.
