Tread of the Undead Zombie 5.5K


This race is now free!  It is capped at 300 "human" participants and 100 "zombie" participants - hurry and get registered to celebrate with Run Wild Missoula's new Executive Director, Tony Banovich!

Almost a year has passed since the last outbreak, but the undead are back. Now you and other area survivors have holed up at the only safe place – Fort Missoula.  But you’re running out of supplies.  Can you run the undead gauntlet and survive a second zombie attack?

Questions or want to volunteer? Please contact the race directors.

THE EVENT: Frightful fun ensues as humans must navigate three 1.16 mile laps through a zombie-infested course in this untimed race.  After the event zombies and humans shake hands, munch on snacks and share stories of the zombie attack.

Start: Sunday September 21, 1:00 p.m., grounds at the Fort Missoula Historical Museum

Finish: Grounds at the Fort Missoula Historical Museum

Race Packet Pick up: Packets will be available for pickup Saturday, September 20, from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m., in the basement of Runner's Edge.  Race day, Sunday, September 21st, HUMAN packets will be available at Ft. Missoula and ZOMBIE packets will be available at Big Sky High School, both from 9:30 - 11:45 a.m. 

Parking: Parking will be available near the Fort Missoula Historical Museum (please do not park in the museum parking lot).

As a human, you’ll wear a belt with 3 life-flags.  If you can make it around the course, (and through the zombies) three times, with at least one flag, you have the distinction of achieving Zombie Apocalypse Survivor! (And hey, if you don’t survive with at least one flag intact, you still get to finish the race – but beware of impending changes.) 

Increase your chance of survival by arming yourself with extra life-flags!  We’ll have additional flags available for sale prior to the race. Please bring extra cash that morning to purchase them. The cost of these flags will be $3.00 for a single flag, or $5.00 for a set of 2 (available on a first come, first served basis.).

Zombies have one mission – get the humans’ life flags!  (Okay, and put the scare on all those humans too!) 

New this year - the humans must make three laps through your zombie horde.  This means you get three thrilling chances to claim the life flags of each runner!

It’s the spookiest game of tag there is – and the awesome, undead makeover you get as a zombie is the icing on the cake.
