Don't miss the rUNDEAD 5k 2014!

This 5k trail run in Saratoga Springs State Park supports Special Olympics New York. The obstacles on this run...zombies!!

Will You Survive? Each runner will start off with a flag belt and three flags. These flags represent your lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will be attempting to take these one at a time. If you lose all three, you're dead and the zombies have won.

If you finish the race with at least one flag, you’ve survived. If zombies have taken all your flags you can complete the race but you won't be eligible for awards. Make Yourself a Meal!


There will be two flights for runners.

  • A competetive flight, "Fast Food"
  • A non-competetive flight, "All You Can Eat"

Pre-registration cost for runners is $30, which goes up to $35 on the day of. Each runner will receive access to the course, race day festivities and an official rUNDEAD race day t-shirt. 


Running not exciting enough for you? Be a zombie! Each zombie will be transformed in our "Mob Tent" the day of the event!  There are two types of zombies:

  • “Hunters” will be allowed to chase runners for a short distance.
  • “Crawlers” can walk, stumble, shuffle or band together to strategically remove flags.

The cost to participate as a zombie is $30 pre-registered or $35 day of, space limited. Zombies can sign up as individuals or teams. Each zombie receives their official transformation, a rUNDEAD race t-shirt, participation in race day festivities and the thrill of the chase.

Race-day registration starts at 7:30 am and race starts at 9:30 a.m on October 26th.

ALL AGES WELCOME! Come support the Special Olympics New York...if you dare!
