Zombie 2Kish Wilderness Run

Saturday, October 23rd, 2021

5:30 p.m. Start

Friends, Bay Citians, Texans unite in the Zombie Horde that is attacking again at dusk!

Zombies are wanted to run (on and off road) this wilderness course that starts off on the pipeline, continues the Wilderness Trail, then down the road onto the jogging trail and finishes at the Riverside Ranger Station.  Be careful – there are obstacles along the way.  Glow sticks will light the way along the trail.  At the end of the run we will host a Riverside Liberation party with light refreshments.

Event registration is now open.  Run fees are: $35.  Early Zombie discount: $25 (through October 1st).  If you want the swag and don’t want to sweat – it is an additional $10, and we won’t tell a soul you didn’t run.  Extra swag will cost $15 per shirt and $10 per bag. Swag includes t-shirt, bag, medal, race bib and photo.  

Trophies will be awarded at the Riverside Liberation Party for: fastest overall, fastest male and female, slowest overall and best Zombie outfit.
