Zombie 5k event in Salem, MA.

 

 

Zombie Run Group Shot

As I have been reporting for the last few weeks 3guys1movie sponsored 5 zombies and 1 actual runner for this event.  T-Shirts were given to participants and we had an all around good time.  I would like to thank Erin Anderson, Sarah Murray, Kevin Murray, Sean Daly, and Jen Daly for being a part of this and representing our website.

On the drive we passed a liquor store with a curious name, I wanted to get a picture but could not so I found one on the interwebs.  I was shocked that they can get away with this butt I guess the name probably brings in customers, or not.

We arrived at Gallows Hill Park at about 5:30 and we were shown around the park and the course the runners would run.  We were strategically placed along the running path and eagerly waited the beginning of the race.  We had a few people ask to take photos with us and spent about a half an hour chatting with locals and finding the best possible hiding spots.  We also discussed strategies and took plenty of photos.  The course was certainly more difficult than expected as there were certain parts with rough terrain, we were hoping to use this to our advantage.

Preparing for the Race

 

 

Sadly many of the runners took this seriously and were tricksy little hobbits, they tucked in their flags and would hold them as they were running passed you.  I found this offensive and totally against the spirit of the race.  I understand you want to survive but don’t cheat to do it.

Sean Daly

Sean was running too fast to get a photo of him in action but I stole this one from his facebook account.

The race lasted about an hour and a half so we decided to go out and get some pizza and beer to wash down the brains we had just eaten.  We headed into downtown Salem, Ma.  which is a hopping little town with plenty of spots and shockingly busy for a Saturday night.  We ate @ Flying Saucer which had a good deal of quality beers and definitely quality pizza, you can check out their facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/FlyingSaucerPizzaCompany.

 

Once again I would like to thank all the participants and look forward to doing more events like this in the future.

    This was a great event! I am happy to promote 3guys (& do) whenever possible. If you need someone to look foolish & move slowly, I’m your girl.

    Great set of pics. Hope you guys had a lot of fun.

      While it was certainly fun I wish it had been later in the night and had been more zombies. I envisioned it as 5 zombies per runner and it was more like 2.

    Did anyone actually run? What fun. I love MA.

    • scottydynamite October 3, 2013, 4:49 am

      We had 1 runner, Sean Daly, who is one of our new writers.

    Looks like awesome fun! Would love to get one of those bunghole t-shirts!!

    • scottydynamite October 3, 2013, 4:50 am

      I agree, they must do pretty well with T Shirts and memorabilia.

  • Sean October 3, 2013, 7:58 am

    It was a great time! Thanks, Scott, for putting it together! I will echo his sentiment that some of the runners were taking it way too seriously. I noticed the Bunghole liqours and tried to take a picture, too.

    Hey Scotty,
    Looks like you all had a blast. Gonna have to get me one of them shirts if there are any available. Great work with the pics and the advertising.

    This is the greatest! Great press, I guess. :D I’d kill to be in a zombie run. Ahem.

  • scottydynamite October 4, 2013, 11:19 am

    All were invited, is the ahem because we did not invite you or are you pointing out your use of kill?
