What is AZA5K? Atlanta Zombie Apocalypse 5K: Run for your life! is an interactive road race featuring zombies along the course who try to grab the flags of runners and walkers as they pass by. It is a fun and family-friendly event to benefit Maynard Jackson High School PTSA.
When is the event? The race will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016, rain or shine. The race begins at 8:00 AM. Registration may be purchased in advance online (Register Now) or on Race Day, beginning at 7:00 AM. All race participants should plan to complete the race no later than 9:30 AM to be guaranteed a t-shirt.
Where do I park? There will be some parking available at the school parking lot. However, participants and guests should be prepared to park on the streets nearby and walk to the school.
How scary is AZA5K? The event is meant to be fun, but will feature zombies – by nature, that’s scary. The race may not be suitable for young children or those with heart conditions.
How much does the race cost? Advance registration is $25 and includes a very cool, one-of-a-kind t-shirt designed by an art student at Maynard Jackson High School. Race Day Registration is $30.
How do I register? Register online in advance (here). On race day, we will accept cash or credit cards. No checks please.
Do I need to print my registration? You may bring a printed copy of your registration, or a copy of your confirmation on your phone. We will have a registration list, but just in case, it’s always nice to have your confirmation handy.
May I take photography of the event? Yes! Take all the pictures you’d like and we encourage you to post them on social media. Use the hashtag #AZA5K Be sure to connect with us on Facebook and Instagram
What is the approximate length of the event? Due to the nature of this event, it may take participants a little longer to finish than a typical 5K race. All participants should plan to finish no later than 9:30 AM.
Can I wear costumes or masks? We highly encourage costumes! But, it would probably be best not to wear a mask during a road race.
How can I support the event, even if I am not running? We get it, it’s not for everyone. If you’d like to make a donation, purchase one of our super-cool t-shirts, or sponsor a student runner, go to the registration page. We appreciate your support!
