White Zombie 5k — 9 a.m. May 30

Participants may run or walk during the White Zombie 5k, which is named after one of the brewery’s flagship beers, White Zombie. The route takes participants from Catawba’s South Slope tasting room through South Slope and features zombies along the way in several “Outbreak Zones.” Racers who wish to dress in costume are encouraged to come as zombies or other Catawba characters (e.g., Farmer Ted, Evening Joe, HOPness Monster, etc.).

A beer token is included with registration for those zombies/racers who are 21 years and older. All runners will receive a custom ZOMBIE race bib. T-shirts may be added during registration. Dogs and strollers are allowed but must start at the back of the pack. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female overall finishers, to the top male and female in the Masters Division (40+), and to the top male and female in the Grandmasters Division (50+).

Beginning Feb. 6, online registration will be available at:
