The Apocalypse is infecting CHICAGO!
At The Zombie Run, running isn’t about beating those around you or finishing with the fastest time. It’s about surviving.
Register as a Human Runner and wear three “life flags” around your waist as you run for your life through our apocalyptic obstacle course!
Or, register as a Zombie, get an awesome movie-quality makeover, and attempt to steal human lives as they flee with terror.
