The Running Dead Zombie 5k Challenge

Can you run a 5k while being chased by zombies? It's not about winning, its about surviving

The goal of this race is not to achieve the fastest time, it's survival! Runners will follow the designated course while encountering a terrifying array of the finest Zombies Salem has to offer! Runners will be wearing a flag belt, similar to the ones worn in flag football. The zombies will try to grab the flags off the belt, which ‘kills’ the runner. Once a runner looses all three of their flags, they are ‘dead’. Dead runners will still finish the course and will receive a  medal, and anyone who has any flags left after they finish are ‘alive’ and will receive a medal with a “survivor” ribbon attached.

Run for Amy 2019

Annual Memorial Race for Amy Diadamo Foster at Appleton Farms in Ipswich, Massachusetts

The third annual Run for Amy Memorial Trail Race will be along the beautiful landscape Appleton Farms in Ipswich, MA. The race, in memory of Amy DiAdamo Foster, is meant to celebrate her life through embracing her passions of both running and spending time outdoors. Equally as important to Amy was the opportunity to gather friends and host a great party so don’t plan on leaving after your race, as music, food and libations are part of the festivities! The race is intended to be casual – running through the trails of Appleton Farms, a mix of single track trails and dirt roads, with some beautiful views along the way. We wouldn’t really be honoring Amy’s memory if there wasn’t some form of competition involved… prizes awarded for top adult & child 5K/10K finishers.
