Enter as a Runner or Zombie at 5K Fun Race by Amigos de La Cruz

Shannon - Amigos de La Cruz
April 3, 2015

Enter as a Runner and evade all the Zombies to finish with all your “lives” intact.

Enter as a Zombie and steal as many Runner’s “lives” as you can.

Amigos de La Cruz is hosting a 5K Zombie fun run in La Cruz.

It is designed to bring more awareness to the work that is being done for the Highway Beautification project that Amigos has taken on by hiring two full time employees, local to La Cruz, who provide landscape maintenance and trash/debris clean up along the 200 HWY section running through town. All proceeds from the run will go toward this project.

We hope you'll join us on Saturday, April 11 where registration will begin at 8:00 am and the race will begin at 9:00.

The Sign Up Tent will be on the Highway in front of Vallarta Gardens. No early purchase - pay the morning of the race.

The donation entry fee is 100 pesos per entrant.

Participants can either sign up as a Runner or a Zombie. Runners be given a belt with two "lives" on streamers and can purchase as many additional lives as they want for 20 pesos each. Sponsors can also purchase "lives" for their favorite runners.

Runners and Zombies will start the race at two sections of the highway, with Zombies attempting to steal Runner's "lives" (streamers) and Runners trying to evade and outlast the Zombies.  

Prizes will be given to the first Runner and Zombie to complete the finish line and also to the runner and zombie in the first top ten finishers with the most lives intact or taken, respectively.

The course will start at the entrance to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle and take a turn at the streetlight, main road down to Marina, thru the Marina out to the point on the malecon/seawall and return route up to entrance of town.
