The Running Dead 5K is Kansas City's most zombie-rific event! Sign up as a human and race to the finish line and escape the Zombie Attack Zones as you fight for your survival. Or join the undead zombie hoard that will chase humans (or slowly stalk them, as zombies tend to do) through the course. Humans and zombies will battle it out across our wooded course on the beautiful grounds at the Kansas City Renaissance Festival site.

Do a test-drive of your Halloween costume and get awarded big prizes! We'll be having a group and individual costume contest at 10:30AM, before the run starts at 11AM.

After the run (if you're still alive) we'll have beer, soda, water, and Gatorade for your further enjoyment.

Purchase a Ticket before September 2nd, 2016 and receive a FREE Kansas City Renaissance Festival Ticket.
