Race Information

We’re glad you signed up for AZA5K to benefit Maynard Jackson High School PTSA.  You’re going to have fun and get fit! Here are some notes about this unique 5K and what to expect:
  • Not sure what Zombie 5K is?  Humans (runners and walkers) will receive 3 flags to wear around their waist during the race.  Zombies will be hiding along the race course and will try to grab humans’ flags as they pass by.  The winner of the race must cross the finish line with at least 1 flag remaining.
  • Due to the nature of the event, it is probably not a race where runners will make their personal best.  Relax, have fun.. and don’t worry if you get slowed down a little by a zombie.  This race is also perfect for walkers!
  • This unique 5K race is meant to be fun…and just a little scary! We ask that humans be careful and considerate of each other when zombies are on the course.
  • All humans are invited to participate in the Finisher’s Community, a safe haven for all those who survived the apocalypse!  There will be music, t-shirt pick up, goodie bags, snacks, vendor demonstrations and the race awards ceremony.
  • Want to test out your Halloween Costume?  We encourage participants to dress up for the occasion!
  • Like the idea, but it’s just not for you?  That’s cool.  Maybe you could:
