Run a 5K on post-apocalyptic streets and paths in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. Race against darkness. Dodge the zombies and keep your “flag football” life strips to avoid infection and stay alive (time bonus).


 Dire. Recon footage shows rural fortifications are on the brink of collapse. The viral outbreak is projected to go full-scale, spreading like wildfire among the dense populations of the city.
