There are two types of runners in this 5K: regular humans, with possibly excellent quads, and the undead who will chase them down and attempt to consume the brains and other organs of human runners before they reach the finish line. By “consume” we mean grab and by “brains and other organs” we mean the three flags runners wear on a belt during the race. If the zombies succeed in taking all three flags, you die. By “die” we mean no medal for you, better luck next time. Bonus: you can register in Connecticut’s Original Zombie Run as a zombie or a human. Photo courtesy of Stephanie Veto.
