About this Race
The Tewksbury Rotary Club in partnership with the Tewksbury Events Committee presents the first annual Zombie 5K Run/Walk beginning at the new Tewksbury Memorial High School on Pleasant Street in Tewksbury. Wear your Halloween costume, paint your face, dress-up, and plan to have a lot of fun this October! The course is well established in town, flat, and fast - perfect for first-timers. Chip timing and bibs provided by RaceWire. Be sure to join your fellow runners and invite non-running family and friends for a pancake breakfast after the race in the TMHS Cafeteria. Registration fee is $25, $20 for registrations before Sept. 15!
On site registration is extremely limited, as the race starts early - at 8:00 AM. Number pick-up for pre-registered runners/walkers begins at 7 AM in the parking lot. An EARLY Bib pick-up event has been added, on Saturday, October 18, from 9-12 at Eastern Bank, 1800 Main Street, Tewksbury.
Ample, well marked parking is on-site at the high school. Entry to the school is the main entrance, right off the main drive and sidewalks. Race starts and ends in the parking lot.
Awards will be given in multiple categories for best costume - so even if you aren't fast you can still win! A kids costume contest will follow the race.
