Saratoga rUNDEAD 2017

NY Special Olympics rUNDEAD zombiesThe annual Saratoga rUNDEAD returns to Saratoga Spa State Park October 15. And the event, a fundraiser for New York Special Olympics, continues to mutate -- this year it's a treasure hunt of sorts:

Using a treasure map, you will have one hour to locate three containers in the park, to be entered to win the grand prizes.
We still have zombies and we still have humans. Instead of humans seeing if they can outrun the zombie infestation. This year we will see if humans can preserve the planet for the human race by curing the zombie infection outbreak, or will zombies take over? Only you can decide by participating in The Saratoga Rundead.
Register as a part of "Team Human" and you will be given a treasure map to find the components for the zombie virus outbreak.
Register as a part of "Team Zombie" and you will be given a treasure map to find the components to make the outbreak spread across the planet.

Why the change this year? From the FAQ: "We found a lot of people who would like to participate, but are not runners. Also we wanted to give zombies a more active role in the event." (Zombies get bored out their BRAAAAAIIINNS, too, you know.)

Registration is $35 ($25 for age 12 and under) and available online. You can also set up a team online by becoming a team captain.
