WILL YOU SURVIVE? The rUNDEAD is a 5k trail run in which runners start off with a flag belt and three flags representing their lifelines. Zombies will be stationed throughout the course attempting to take them one at a time. Once a runner loses all three flags, they are “dead” and the zombies have won. While the runner can still finish the race, they will not be eligible for awards. Registration starts at 8:30am and the race begins at 10:30am. All money raised will go to support the 61,582 athletes of Special Olympics New York. To register please sign up at www.therundead.org or click here
