For the love of humanity, RUN!

Can you outrun the infected…or do you prefer to chase the living?

Run for Humanity is a thrilling post-apocalyptic 5km or 10km course for all athletic levels.

A zombie outbreak has infected the world!  A quarantine site has been set up at Champoeg State Park in rural Oregon, a safe haven where survivors from all over have congregated to share resources and wait out the imposing disaster.  As the survivors settle in and begin to plan, there is a commotion. An unsettling feeling, growing murmurs, panic…screams. There has been a breach.  The zombies are here. There is nothing to do but RUN!

Register as Humans, Zombies, or Placed Zombies. Humans are given three belt flags aka “lives”. Zombies are trying to snatch your flags. Humans get an advanced start on running zombies but will encounter “placed” zombies who will be coming out of hiding at various spots along the course! Humans strive to keep at least one flag at the finish line.

Survivors with the best times win Ultimate Survivor titles and prizes. Zombies are vying to grab as many flags as possible in quest to be named Master of the Zombies and snatch up the top prize.  Prizes awarded for best individual and team costumes as well. Beer garden and live music by Deadwood Standing and survival skills demonstrations by Banat Wilderness and Urban Survival Training.  Zombie make-up services available before the race by Beth Lau.

All proceeds benefit North Willamette Valley Habitat for Humanity which builds safe, decent and affordable housing for low-income families.
