Here is some useful information for you humans. If you’re coming with or if you know a Zombie who is coming, please read this to em (cuz we all know Zombies can’t read)
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 and no one is being chased by Zombies… just have fun! (hence the name “Run With” the zombies).
When: October 28th
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.
-8:05 Make up booth closes, and the Zombie contest begins
-8:25 Announce Zombie contest winners
-8:40 U-Jam warms ya up with some cool dancing!
-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 Zombie.
-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)
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 Zombie Run 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. We encourage public transportation or ride your bike. There will be a free Bike corral and a free coat check.
This year we are happy to announce a new sponsor. The folks over at the
