Welcome to the 2018 Coustume 5K Fun Run
October 27, 2018 at Kelley Park in San Jose 9:00am
Thank you for joining us at the 2018 Costume 5K Fun Run
(AKA Zombie Run)
Here is some useful information
Join us as we raise funds for the San Jose Parks Foundation!
First and foremost, Have fun! You can Run, Walk, or even Crawl if ya want! This is a non-timed family friendly fun run so there is no pressure here. Just have fun!
When: October 27th
Where: Kelley Park 1300 Senter rd. San Jose.
-6:00 am: Gates, Make-Up, Sign-Ins open. If you already picked up your number, then you don’t need to go through sign-ins. Just hang at the start.
-9:00am the run begins!
– the course is 5K (3.2 miles)
-99.9% level with a couple of slight inclines.
-The first 1.6 miles is in the streets. We are mandated to reopen the streets at 10am. Don’t worry that’s a whole hour from the start. That’s plenty of time even for the slowest lollygagging stumbling one out there.
-there will be water for ya at 1.6 miles
-the rest of the run is through beautiful Kelley park! All paved trails until ya hit the dead orchard at 2.3 miles. At this point you have the choice to run the dirt road to the finish or take a .9mile shortcut vie the by-pass. The by-pass is all on paved trail (It may be more stroller friendly than the dirt road)
Event Parking: (see map below)
Due to multiple events going on that day Parking is at a premium. In the past we have tied to keep the parking free but this year our only option for official Costume 5K Parking is at the Happy Hallow Parking lot 1300 senter rd. The good news is it’s closer the start line (about a 10 min walk). The not so good news is the Parks department charges $10 (but it’s all for a good cause). We encourage public transportation or ride your bike. There will be a free Bike corral and a free coat check.
Packet Pick up will be on Wednesday October 24 at the Sports Basement from noon to 7Pm.
If ya can’t make that, fret not. You can pick up your shirt and number on the morning of the event at the runners check in.
If you pick up at the Sports basement then ya don’t need to visit the check in at the event. Just arrive at the start line with your number and let the fun begin.
Oh, Also, We will be handing out 20% off vouchers for Sports Basement on the Packet pick up day!
It is our intent to inspire a positive creative and fun atmosphere at Dream Team Events while raising funds to support our fair city (San Jose) and the San Jose parks Foundation.
We hope to give the best possible experience to all who participate with the Zombie Run. When the participants of our Zombie Run are driving home after the event, we want them to feel proud they just participated in something really fun that helped San Jose Parks Foundation. We want them to think of our staff as sincere hosts while being at the event. We take pride in community service and positive attitude which puts Dream Team Events and our Zombie Fun Run above all other 5k runs.
