The Zombies are coming to kill us all… are you ready?
On Sunday, June 24th you’re invited to the Greenpoint Toxic Spill Zone to participate in the inaugural Zombie Dash 2.5 mile race & Party. This unofficial event will pit zombies against runners in the ultimate Zombie Apocalypse experience.

UPDATE: The Place Bar & Lounge (269 Norman Ave) will be opening at 9am for our Zombie party & 2.5 mile race!  Tell all your friends (they’ll be admitted if they’re dressed like Zombies)

RUNNERCheck-In @ 269 Norman Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11222: 10am to 10:45am.

DON’T FORGET TO BRING A BLANK SHIRT WHICH WILL BE SPRAY-PAINTED WITH THE RACE LOGO WITH COLIN’S AWESOMELY HOMEMADE SCREEN PRINTING CONTRAPTION.

How does this race work?
1. Each runner will be given flags that represent brains.
2. Zombies jump out along the course to eat your brains.
3. Get to the Safe Zone with at least 1 flag to complete the race
4. Go to Greenpoint Heights for the Zombie Party and celebrate with food and drink.

Spill Zone, you’ll be in full Zombie clothing dragging your limbs and grabbing flags [brains] from the runners. Afterwards, there will be a Zombie Party for all participants in Greenpoint Heights.

HUMANS– Practice your Zombie Apocalypse skills by sprinting, dodging, and hiding the 2.5 mile course in the Greenpoint Toxic Spill Zone.
