If your idea of fun includes running like crazy to escape a horde of hungry zombies, you’re in luck. Vista View Park in Davie will host the Zombie Rush 5K, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 2.

This latest variation on the old-fashioned 5K run is described by organizers as a “zombie immersion chase.” Participants navigate a post-apocalyptic landscape dotted with zombie-infested quarantine zones where the undead wait to steal the three “health flags” each runner possesses.

Runners will hit the course in waves starting at 8:30, 9, and 9:30 a.m., with junior runners (ages 12 and under) starting at 8:45 a.m. Zombie shifts run from 7:30 to 10 a.m. and 8:30 to 11 a.m. There will be an apocalypse after-party following the 5K, featuring music, themed activities, and food and drink for purchase.

Fees vary, based on whether you want to participate as a human runner, a zombie, or a junior runner. Advance registration is recommended. Zombie makeovers by professional makeup artists are included for those who wish to participate as zombies. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to Kendra’s Kisses, a charity that grants money to families dealing with childhood cancers.

The park’s regular weekend and gate entrance fee of $1.50/person (children 5 and under free) will be in effect.
