4th Annual Zombie Run For Brains 2018

Can you navigate your way through the gounds of Fear Forest without getting infected by the zombies that lurk along the way? Each participant will be given a flag football belt* at the beginning of the race. Make it through the course and finish with at least one flag and you've survived! End the course without any flags left, you've been infected and will need to be "disinfected" before you can rejoin society.

Registration Opens at 10:00am, the Zombie Run starts at 11:00am

*The first wave of runners will be for families and participants who want to run the course but are not interested in having zombies come after them and will not be issues flag football belts.

*Flag football belts are not required to participate. If you choose to participate without a belt, the zombies will not come after you.

Proceeds benefit Brain Injury Connections of the Shenandoah Valley. A nonprofit organization that provides information, resources and services to improve the quality of life for those affected by brain injury in the counties of Rockingham, Augusta, Highland, Bath, Rockbridge and all the cities included within so they can lead independent and productive lives.
Brain Injury Connections of the Shenandoah Valley was formerly Crossroads to Brain Injury Recovery.

How long is the course through Fear Forest?
