In this freakish 5K, race through woods and clearings, over bridges, and alongside ponds as zombie “walkers” and swift-footed “ragers” give chase by the dim light of dusk, aiming to snag your flags. (Tip: Bring five canned goods for the Lowcountry Food Bank, and you’ll earn an extra flag.) Live tunes and a costume contest, youth area, and “Aftermath” party—with food, beer, and an outdoor screening of The Goonies—guarantee good times.
