So maybe working out isn’t your thing. Or maybe you’re a total gym rat. Either way, what better motivation to run fast and get your heart pumping than being chased by a horde of zombies around? In this 5k race complete with manmade and natural obstacles, your three flags are your “lives” and if you make it to the finish line with at least one of your flags, you’ve survived. If a zombie gets its hands on all three of your flags, you’re dead. Perhaps gore is your thing. You can sign up to be one of the zombies and come dressed in your best gruesome make-up and soiled clothing or pay to get your make-up professionally done at the Zombie Make-Up Tent. Prizes will be awarded to the highest flag-grossing zombie, but you can’t bite, trip, or hit the runners in order to attain more flags. Feel free to lurk in trees and bushes, stumble toward runners while moaning, hissing and growling to make them fear for their lives. Groups of runners will be divided into “waves” starting at 8 a.m. sharp, depending on the information on your bib. After the run, you can reward yourself for your badass survival techniques with food from five different food trucks and a beer garden for the 21-and-over crowd. If you simply want to watch the madness ensue, tickets are $5 for spectators. To participate, it’s $40 for runners and $20 for zombies. Basic zombie make-up is an additional $5 or get realistic with prosthetic make-up for $10. For more information or to register, visit http://www.sacramentozombierun.com/.
