FAQ for the Costume 5K

Q: Wait…. What! Is it the Zombie Run, or a Costume 5K?

  A:  Yes, its both!  Due to popular demand we are transforming the 6th annual “Run with the Zombies” to the “2018 Costume 5K Fun Run”.   Yes! We still love our Zombie Alumni, but now all fun-loving costume clad folks are encouraged to join the fun while we support the San Jose Parks Foundation. (and no... our Zombies don't chase people, sheese!)

Q: Costume 5K Fun Run? Is this for me?

A: This is a 5K (3.1 mile) Run/Walk.  It's a Family Friendly Fun (not timed).  You do not have to be in great shape, but you do need to posses the ability to smile and laugh a lot.  Wearing  a costume is encouraged but not mandatory.


Q: How It Works:

We don’t care who comes in first or who comes in last.  So if you care, then you gotta bring your own timing device.  Cuz everyone knows It’s all just for fun!

Everyone will get a finishers medal, a cool shirt,  and there will be awards for certain categories (yet to be determined… so stay tuned)

Q: Does this benefit a charity?

A: We (Jiminy Stitch-It and Dream Team Events) Love San Jose, We and we love San JoseParks.  So we looked, and looked, and looked even more, and we decided to support the San Jose Parks Foundation.   The San Jose Parks Foundation is a great organization and a huge asset to our fair city.

Q: Can I bring a Pet?

A: NOT! Hey, we love pets! Really, we do! But sometimes pets freak out when amongst all the freaky coutumes  ?  Ya might as well bring your dog to a mail carrier convention.  So please leave your pets at home.  You can show them  pictures from the run later.

Q: Is this race refundable?

A: This race is non-refundable, but we want everyone to be happy so you can transfer your entry to a bud.

Q: How do I sign-up for the fun!

A: Go to the top of this page and click on the Green “Register Here” Button or click right here

Q: What if it rains on Race Day?

A: Rain or shine the 2018 Costume Fun Run is on!

Q: What if I suffer from CMC  (Costume Make-up Challenged)?

A: No worries, we will have a Zombie make-up booth for ya!

Q: Do I have to dress up ?

A: No you don’t have to dress up, but this is an awesome opportunity  to “get your Halloween on”
