The Erie Sports Commission is pleased to announce that The Zombie Run: Extreme and The Zombie Run: Black Ops races will be held Saturday, May 17th at Lake Erie Speedway.
The event will feature two untimed races – The Zombie Run: Extreme and The Zombie Run: Black Ops.
The Zombie Run: Extreme begins at 9 a.m. and takes place on a mud-filled, 5K obstacle course through a zombie-infested wasteland. Racers will be tested as they dodge an army of brain-thirsty undead while scrambling through a series of rugged obstacles. The Zombie Run: Black Ops starts at 9 p.m. and offers a chance to tackle a terrifying nighttime obstacle course of fire, obstacles, smoke and zombie-infested darkness.
The event will be working with the Erie Playhouse as a benefiting nonprofit.
Registration is now open at www.thezombierun.com with reduced rates available until March 31st. Zombie registration is $35 and human registration is $65. Teams of four or more zombies or humans will receive an additional $5 discount per person. All participants will receive a t-shirt and a drawstring bag. Humans will also receive participation medals while all zombies enjoy a zombie makeover prior to the start of the event. The Zombie Run: Black Ops participants also get a LED bracelet.
“The Zombie Run is a great way to add an exciting event to our race calendar and take advantage of some of the natural landscape offered here at Lake Erie Speedway,” said Branden Kaczay, Executive Vice President – Business Operations of Lake Erie Speedway. “We have the track, open land and wooded areas which creates an awesome environment for this type of race.”
“This is a themed event that will provide all sorts of fun in addition to physical challenges,” said Erie Sports Commission Executive Director Ron Sertz. “Lake Erie Speedway offers an excellent diversity as far as terrain is concerned and that will make the event even better.”
