Zombie RunJoin us for the Tenth Annual Traverse City Zombie Run, Saturday, October 27th, 2018.

The Zombie Run has become a Traverse City Halloween tradition. What's not to like? Zombies and beer have always been a winning combination.

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!
