How It Works

The Chesapeake Zombie Fun Run is an apocalyptic 3K experience. You are not running against a clock — you’re running from brain-hungry, virus-spreading, bloody zombies.


Before the race, you will be given three flags. These flags represent your health. Flags may be tucked in your waistband or pinned to your outfit. The zombies want to take your flags. It’s your goal to finish the race with at least one flag.


There will be zombies along the race course. Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flags. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags, but you must stay on the course. Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE “alive” with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”.

Prizes will be given to the first runner to cross the line with a at least one flag intact for each age group: Youth 5-11, Teens 12-18 and Adults 18+
