At Special Z Games, we want nothing more than to see those with special needs be able to overcome the challenges that they face every single day. That can happen through better public awareness, better assistive devices in public places, and new policies that empower children and adults with special needs. Our zombie 5K fun run on October 15th will be an amazing event, and it will help boost awareness and hopefully enact positive change throughout Santa Cruz and the rest of California!

Early registration for our 5K is now open, and you can sign up as an individual or as part of a horde. If you like to run on your own, an Individual registration will be best, but if you have a group of friends that love zombies and obstacle courses, then the Horde package is a great option. There will be five waves of runners, and right now, we have 12 obstacles planned for the course. It’s possible that we’ll add more obstacles before race day, or that certain challenges could change before the course is finalized. Be sure to check back often for updates and new details on the 5K!

We’re also looking for volunteers, or Zombieteers, to help on race day. We know that our zombie run will be an amazing event, and it will be so due to the commitment of dedicated individuals like you. Everyone will receive a free t-shirt and invitation to the post-apocalyptic after party, and every runner will get a medal! Help those with special needs by signing up to run or volunteer at our zombie 5K in October.
