Pensacon's Day of the Dead Zombie Run

PENSACOLA, FL: Pensacon and Kinematic Entertainment, in partnership with Running Wild, present Pensacon's Day of the Dead Zombie Run to be held November 1 at 10 a.m. Registration opens July 1, at pensacon.com/zombierun. Runners can register as either a "zombie" or "survivor," or sign up to be a volunteer. There will also be an "End of the World Party" after the race in Seville Square with food, drinks, music, and activities for families and kids. The Day of the Dead Zombie Run is a 5K run through a fully immersive zombie apocalypse experience in the middle of Downtown Pensacola. A zombie pandemic has been sweeping the country, and the government has been attempting to control the outbreaks through enforcing checkpoints to test for the deadly "Z Virus." Past the checkpoint lies the promise of a secure, safe location. However, just as you have been processed and almost reached safety, the checkpoint has been compromised - the infection is spreading! Before you, lies a harrowing obstacle course winding through a sudden zombie outbreak. Chances for survival are slim. Get ready to run for your lives! The event will also benefit Manna Food Pantries. For every can of non-perishable food donated, participants will receive a $1 discount off the registration cost, up to $10.  Pensacon 2015 is set to return next year February 27 - March 1, 2015. Weekend and VIP passes are on sale now at pensacon.com.
