Zombie RunDead Alert! The Eleventh Annual Traverse City Zombie Run is coming to get you Saturday, October 26th.

The Zombie Run has become a 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! Right Brain Brewery will be hosting the run as always. The run wouldn't by the same without our friends at the Brain, get it? Stick around after the race for the medal ceremony and best costumes prizes. Who says you can't drink before noon? Besides, you're already dead anyway! To register and for more information go to:
