Special Olympics New York Introduces Zombie Run to Brooklyn

RunDead LogoWinter Film Awards is pleased to partner with the Special Olympics!  On October 26th participants will run for their lives to escape the zombie apocalypse at Luna Park in Coney Island, Brooklyn, all to benefit Special Olympics New York!  The rUNDEAD is a family friendly scavenger hunt/run in which runners will start off with a flag belt and three flags representing their lifelines.  Zombies will be stationed throughout the course attempting to take these one at a time.  Once a runner loses all three flags, they are “dead” and the zombies have won.  While the runner can still finish the race, they will not be eligible for awards.

There are two roles to be filled; you can be a fresh kill (zombie) or a survivor. The goal for survivors is to make it through the course amongst the living, the goal for the zombies is to stop you and make you one of their own. Runners can register online as an individual or a team in advance at Each runner will receive access to the course, race day festivities and an official rUNDEAD race day t-shirt and much much more.

Those who do not wish to run have the option of registering to become a zombie!  Each zombie will be transformed in our “Mob Tent” the morning of the event.  Zombies will receive their official transformation, an official rUNDEAD race day t-shirt, participation in race day festivities and the thrill of the chase! Register online to be a runner or zombie at

Race day registration will begin at 9:00am, with the race starting at 10:00am.
