The race starts at 11 a.m. at the Ginn Mill, 2041 Larimer Street, pitting costumed 2-6 person teams of zombie hunters, zombies, and "zombie bait" against each other in a series of brain-scrambling challenges at checkpoints throughout downtown Denver (and making for quite a spectacle for unsuspecting weekend visitors downtown). The Zombie Dash is 21+ (with apologies to all the little zombies from race organizers), and a portion of the $40 fee benefits the Flobots.org programs using music and the arts as tools to help stave off the Zombie Apocalypse for another generation. Pre-register at www.ZombieDash2011.CharityHappenings.org to put your own brains on the line; last-minute registration is Friday night at The Gin Mill from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
There are awards, prizes, and food and drink discounts at the Ginn Mill after the Zombie Dash, but consider yourself a winner if you can manage to finish the day with your skull intact.
