rUNdead's The Amazing Zombie Race 

When: Sat., July 26, 3:30-6 p.m. 2014
Phone: (843) 580-3757
Price: $30/racers, $5/zombies
Thanks to The Walking Dead, Shaun of the Dead, and all the other living and dead-lovin’ films, TV shows, and video games, we’re all prepared for a zombie apocalypse. If you’ve been disappointed lately that you haven’t been able to show off your survival skills, fret not — your chance to capture some walkers is finally here. The Amazing Zombie Race is a scavenger hunt from rUNdead that will give folks the chance to put their survival skills to use and shoot some zombies — well, photo shoot them. Sign-up your team of two and make your way to 15 sites around downtown to capture the 30 zombies lurking around town. Photo evidence of each zombie must be uploaded to Instagram with a provided hashtag, and the first team at the Kickin’ Chicken with photos of 30 zombies will be the winner of a cash prize. The search begins at 3:15 p.m. at the Custom House, where racers will receive a sheet of clues that leads them to each location. Once they’ve deciphered the clues, racers can map the course for themselves — aiming for the shortest distance, the quickest route, or whatever approach they may choose. Ben-Jamin Toy of On Purpose Adventures says, “I came up with the idea of pursuing zombies from team-building and bachelorette scavenger hunts that I’ve arranged in the past ... With our partners at the county parks, we were looking for ways to creatively incorporate other events before October’s 5K and bring attention to the rUNdead program.” Racers will have a chance to win free registration to rUNdead’s October 5K, and the zombie voted best-costume will also be granted free entry to the race
