This untimed, fun 5K will take place on an all-terrain course with zombie hordes treading throughout the course. “Runners” will wear flag football belts with flags. “Zombies” will try to pull these flags and infect the “runners.”

Makeup will also be provided in the Big Sky High School gymnasium, provided by the Big Sky High School Drama Department, on race day from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. All participants will also get race refreshments and the option to have their photographs taken in the photo booth provided.
