Chase or be chased…..
September 30th, dusk

The Vampire 5K is a thrilling fun run that starts at dusk at Flat Acres farms.  Choose to run as a citizen or hide on the course as a Vampire, seeking to “transform” victims with red powder as they run through woods, abandoned buildings, and a haybale maze.
Celebrate eternity in the post-run Red Dusk after-party with music, dancing, red glow sticks, red beer, fun awards, and make-up artists on-hand ready to “transform” any willing citizens into new Vampires.


Here’s how it works:

  1.  Sign up as a either a Vampire or Citizen.
  2. Vampires will have a designated spot on course to try and “convert” the Citizens, who will be running.   There will only be 50 Vampires to start registration so if this is YOU, they will sell out fast. Run starts at dusk!
  3. The hunt is on. Vampires try to convert Citizens by “marking” them red (red powder) .  Citizens try to escape with their mortality intact.
  4. Gotta celebrate at the after party.

Join us in September and get ready to confirm what we have known all along, running sucks!
