SUPER EARLYBIRD PRICING THROUGH FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH!
ZOMBIE-THEMED COSTUMED 5K FUN RUN
Imagine hundreds of zombies waiting to devour some tasty human brains- and instead of running from them, you’re ONE OF THE ZOMBIES! When the alarm goes off, a human survivor flees down the path ahead of you while all of you run, lurch and shuffle after him! That’s how this is going to go down.
The pictures will be glorious. That’s not all! There’s going to be lots of surprises along the way and chances for you to terrorize the locals!
Registration comes with a zombie makeup kit, No-Brainer swag bag and all finishers get a custom pint glass! Trophies will be awarded after the race for fastest runners and best costumes too!

INCLUDED IN REGISTRATION:
NO-BRAINER GEAR BAG
This SWEET gear bag is also the PERFECT trick-or-treat bag for the kiddos! These bad boys are a lot higher quality than your usual sling backpacks AND they’ve got light-reflective strips to increase safety at night! Plus, we gave them some pretty hilarious designs.
ADULTS: FINISHER’S PINT GLASS
We all like tasty bevs, right? Right. This glass not only says “hey, I enjoy getting some exercise and having fun,” but it also literally tells people that you might be a zombie and they better not mess with your beer. Ever.
KIDS: FINISHER’S SLAP BRACELET
These are Glow-In-The-Dark! They’re PERFECT for trick-or-treating too, like the swag bags! Your little ones will basically be ballin’ AND SAFE on Halloween. You can thank us later.

The course starts at West Wingfield Park, West along the Truckee River path and through Idlewild Park, with some fun surprises along the route!
There is tons of parking around West Wingfield Park. If you choose a metered parking space, you can now pay the meters with a credit card.

Shirts are $20 on race day until we sell out.
After the race is over and folks have shuffled back to their graves, those 21 and over and invited to Headquarters Bar at 219 W 2ND street for a sweet undead afterparty full of drink specials and all manner of reanimated shenanigans.
Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful (KTMB), it is a nonprofit dedicated to beautification, advocating for a clean community, cleanups and education in the Truckee Meadows for over 25 years. They coordinate volunteer groups to help plant trees and flowers, clean up graffiti, and beautify parks, and hold large-scale cleanup events and recruit over 4,000 volunteers a year to help remove litter from the Truckee River, open spaces, neighborhoods and business corridors.
A portion of the proceeds from every Happy Athletics run goes to KTMB. Keeping our community clean is important to us, and so we thank everyone who comes out to the runs, which helps us support their cause.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Technically, you can wear whatever you want. You could even run naked if you don’t mind running from the police (don’t run naked). BUT a huge part of what makes these events awesome is your costumes! We encourage you to dress in a zombie theme, however you interpret that.
CAN I WALK?
CAN I BRING MY DOG?
Yes! Your dog must be on a leash and be able to stay under control. Your dog’s actions are your responsibility. Also, check to see if the pavement is too hot for your pup’s paws!
CAN I RUN WITH A STROLLER?
Yes! You don’t have to register your child who is in a stroller. Honestly, you could put a grown person in a stroller and you wouldn’t have to register them- that’d be hilarious.
IS THIS EVENT TIMED?
This is a fun run, not a chipped/timed event.
WHERE AND WHEN IS PACKET PICKUP?
When: 5-8pm on Friday, October 27
