WILL YOU SURVIVE? Join us for the 3rd annual Rundead, Rochester deadliest 5K!

The Rundead is a 5K fun run where zombies are the obstacles. This event is not about getting your fastest time and it is not about winning your age group. The one goal at the Rundead is to survive! Each runner will receive three flags and runners must work to complete the course without having all of their flags stolen by the zombies.

If you choose to participate as a zombie, you will receive a full zombie makeover, be placed out on course, and work to steal those runner flags!Event day runnerEvent day zombies

The Rundead has amazing entertainment, food, other activities, and a surprise around every corner! Register today as a team or as an individual by visiting

What is the rUNDEAD?

A 5k trail run through Saratoga Spa State Park, where runners are trying to escape hungry zombies.

Will You Survive?

Each runner will start off with a flag belt and three flags. These flags represent your lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will be attempting to take these one at a time. If you lose all three, your dead and the zombies have won.

Escape the Virus!

Use speed, strategy… whatever it takes to keep your flags. If you finish the race with at least one, you’ve survived. If zombies have taken all your flags you can complete the race but you wont be eligible for awards.

The ZombiesRunning races not your thing? Be a zombie! Each zombie will be transformed in our “Mob Tent” the day of the event from 7:30am to 9am. Bring your own attire and let us make you into the undead.

Hunters & Crawlers

We’re recruiting two types of zombies to go after their meals. “Hunters” will be allowed to chase runners for a short distance. “Crawlers” can walk, stumble, shuffle or band together to strategically remove flags. Zombies are not allowed to physically touch runners.

Join the Mob!

The cost to participate as a zombie is $25 pre-registered or $30 day of. Zombies can sign up as individuals or teams. We’ll place zombie teams together along the course. Each zombie receives their official transformation, a rUNDEAD race t-shirt, participation in race day festivities and the thrill of the chase. All ages welcome!
