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.

Proceeds benefit Brain Injury Connections of the Shenandoah Valley.

The Storybook 5K and Fun Run

Definitely not your average road race, The Storybook 5K and Fun Run provides both a UNIQUE COURSE as well as the opportunity to come up with a great COSTUME! 

Dress up as your favorite literary character* and run amongst the Christmas trees growing at Every Soul Acres farm in Keezletown. The route will be mostly grass underfoot and will provide some spectacular views ... though you'll have to climb some hills in order to see them. We think you'll find it's worth the effort to experience fall in the Valley from that vantage point. 

After the race, you and your family can visit the farm and take advantage of the activities it offers: pumpkin picking, a corn maze and maybe even sunflowers. 

All proceeds from the event will go toward scholarships for Redeemer Classical School students from throughout the Shenandoah Valley.

Register by OCTOBER 8 in order to guarantee a t-shirt. (Note that a Fun Run registration does not include a race shirt.) Same-day Race Registrations will be accepted, but they will carry an additional $10 fee.

Packet pick-up will be Friday, October 12, 4 - 6 p.m. at the Redeemer Classical School campus.

* There will be a prize for the Best Costume.
