Special Z Games was created not only to organize the greatest zombie mud run in San Jose, but also to bring awareness to issues that those with special needs face on a daily basis. Children and adults with special needs have to navigate a world where buildings and facilities are not always designed to help them, and it can feel like a post-apocalyptic atmosphere that is dangerous and intimidating. Through our zombie 5K, we hope to show people that we can make the world a better place for those with special needs, and it starts with you signing up for our race in January.

Our goal is to affect positive change in those systems that make it difficult for those with special needs to safely go through their day. We believe that the post-apocalyptic and zombie theme fits perfectly with our mission, and we strive to make the race both fun and fulfilling. With just over a month until race day, you can join in our efforts and make a difference in people’s lives.

Check out our Events page to see more information on pricing and registration. Everyone that participates gets a free t-shirt, a medal, and an invitation to the zombie after party. If you have a group of friends that wants to take part in the obstacle run, be sure to sign up under our “Hoard” category. There’s still time to take advantage of our early registration discounts, but don’t wait too long to make your decision! We look forward to seeing you on race day.
