Pier Park #ZombieChase

Pier ParkThe Pier Park Zombie Chase $5 5k is coming up this weekend, which means it is time to get in that last training run, make some finishing touches on your costume and answer all of your questions about the big day! The race will begin at 9am on Sunday, October 19th at Pier Park, which is located at N Lombard St & Bruce Ave. The 1k kid’s fun run will begin at 8:45am and is led by our friends from Foot Traffic.

To be prepared on race day, we offer a bib pick-up day on Thursday, October 16th at Charles Jordan Community Center (9009 N Foss Ave) from 4-7pm. We would love to see you come out to pick up some fun new prizes! If you can’t make it on Thursday, you will also be able to pick up your bib on the morning of the race!

On race day, street parking and use of the parking lots is acceptable. However, we also highly recommend using public transportation (Bus #44) and carpooling or biking to our events. Make sure to visit our course map page for a view of the Pier Park Race Route.
