There has been a zombie outbreak in the most peaceful and beautiful of our urban landscapes – the Botanic Garden. Run through the winding pathways with dense plant life and towering botanic specimens, not knowing what could jump out at you from the shadows or what awaits around the next turn, heart pounding, nothing else matters now except survival! Whether you survive the zombie horde or lose your life and come back from the dead, there is plenty of fun to be had at the post-apocalypse party for zombies and humans alike. The party will feature a beer garden (local craft brewery), great food, DJ, photo ops, winning team ceremony, and local vendors with awesome things to show off.

Please visit www.deadgardenrun.com for more details and registration.
