Tip Of The Day

Set a Date

No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.

Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.

Danger! Zombies! 5k Run

Danger! Zombies! Run! Escape the undead as a human, or chase humans as a zombie and turn them into zombies by taking their life! As a human, you'll have a 90 seconds head start, and you'll attempt not to be killed by any zombie. Your life will hang as a ribbon on your back. If you are killed, volunteers along the course will stand by with buckets of fake blood ready to zombiefy you. As a zombie, you'll attempt to chase and kill as many humans as possible by stealing the ribbon (life) on their backs. The zombie with the most kills will win. As a deluxe zombie, you'll be zombiefied by make up artists on site before the start.
