    Has anyone tried to run a 5 km Zombie Run? We decided to try it this year late Sept., to raise money and also promote our Haunt.
    First week of registration online and it's really busy. We may reach our cap in July. Our actors from the Haunt will infest the trail along the 5 km Run.

    I would also look into the Run For Your Lives run. www.runforyoulives.com

    I really like the ideas they have for the run and then using the runners in previous heat to go back and be zombies as well. It apparently is a huge thing down in the Lower 48. I wouldn't mind doing it hear but I dont know if they would run faster from the zombies or the Grizzley that wanders onto the course in the middle of the run...

    I participated in The Zombie Run in Charlotte a couple weeks ago. Had 4000 runners their first year. LOTS of fun.

    It's incredible! We seem to be attracting a completely different demographic. The local Mud Run reached their cap of 13,000 here this month. I am pretty sure we will reach our cap of 1000 by July if our first week of registration is any indication.
    We are going to wrap a 16 foot trailer to advertise and it will be a place to do our make-up on run day.
    We have a large team of athletes and their families dressed as our Zombies.
    I hope the Run will also help us have the busiest Haunted House season. Last year the numbers were down.

    it does sound like fun, but I'd be curious how many people who go the event will actually come to the haunt. You should do something to track it and encourage it, like give them all coupons for a % off their regular ticket. Try to get their email address during registration as well. That way you can send a reminder and you see how many people from the run show up at the haunt. Good luck.

    Why not use it as a new source of revenue? You might get some of the people to come to the haunt, but all of the runs I have seen have made good money, and it looks to me like a great new source of revenue to help fund the haunt. I know of one that actually charges the Zombies something like $75 to chase the runners, and they had like 125 Zombies pay to participate! The runners paid even more!
