Can you outrun the undead?

Join us as we kick off the Halloween season and Duanesburg Homecoming Week with our Zombie Fun Run. Our student-athletes will be dressed as zombies and staged throughout the course to attempt to steal a flag we will provide for you as you make your way from the secure confines of our elementary school gymnasium to the safety of the finish line.

Your objective: keep your flag from start to finish and avoid any zombies you encounter. Outrun, outsmart, or simply hide behind your fellow runners and maneuver through the course. However you do it, be safe and smart and keep your eye on the finish line.

The first runners will begin the Zombie Fun Run around 12:20pm; the last runners will start around 3:40pm. If you have a particular time you'd like to start running, please make sure you are checked in 15 minutes before you would like to begin your run.

The DCPTA Homecoming Week Zombie Fun Run is open to anyone in the Duanesburg community and surrounding communities. Runners should be able to run three-quarters of a mile (stepping off the course to catch your breath is ok) and in good physical health. You should also be a little scared -- but not too scared -- of zombies… otherwise, why would you aim to outrun them?

Runners can sign up as individuals for $5 each and will be staged to run in heats.

Our registration is a two-part process. Please first purchase your entry ticket at Retain your order number from your e-mail and return to this website to complete the registration.

In keeping with safety mandates set forth by Duanesburg Central School, attendees should be masked at all times while indoors, regardless of vaccination status. In the event of eating or drinking, attendees and competitors will be allowed to take off masks provided they move away from food areas and do their best to stay six (6) feet away from other individuals. Failure to comply with this policy will result in removal from school grounds and disqualification from the event.

Online ticket registration ends October 1 at 9:00PM. On-site tickets will be available for $10 each.
