Hosted by: Volunteer New York!
A 5k trail run through the park where runners or walkers are trying to escape hungry zombies. 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, your dead and the zombies have won.
