Zombie Run - October 27th

Zombie RunBring out your dead for the Tenth Annual Traverse City Zombie Run, October 27th, 2018. The Zombie Run is Traverse City Halloween tradition. What's not to like? Zombies and beer have always been a winning combination.

Over the years we have seen zombies from all walks of life, or should I say death. Who will show up this year? The only thing we never saw was someone not having a good time! Stick around after the race for the medal ceremony and best costumes prizes. We may have a few other surprises as well. Plus the beer will be flowing, who says you can't drink before noon? Besides, you’re already dead anyway! For more information go to
