This is a family friendly event, too, so feel free to bring the kids along with you! Strollers are welcome on the run course, as well, please just start at the back of the pack. There is a Ghouls race for the kids, that begins at 3 p.m. Survivors will take to the start line at 5 p.m., and the Zombies will begin their pursuit at 5:02 p.m.
Survivors: You will have two lifeline flags attached to you, that the Zombies will be attempting to grab. If you lose your flags, you are "dead" - but you are not a Zombie. Your goal is to accomplish the 2.5 mile race without losing your lifelines to the Zombies! Can you do it?
The Run 2 Survive 2.5 mile race, as well as the Ghouls for Schools kids race (and costume contest!), benefit the Evergreen School District Foundation. Come out and support this excellent non-profit, which is helping to ensure that all kids have access to a world-competitive education.
And don't forget the Witches Brew Fest, which is open to the public. Bring your friends, have them run with you, or cheer you on, and then sample some beers to celebrate (hopefully) outrunning the Zombies! Pints are $4, and the current list of breweries participating is great: Heathen, Mt Tabor, Loowit, Seven Brides, Washougal/Rail Side, Ninkasi - Oktoberfest, Fort George, Lompoc, 10 Barrel, Ace California Hard Ciders, and 1 Zombie Zin for the wine lovers!
