Oct 28 Run for Your Health in the 3rd Annual Walk GA Zombie 5k & 1 Mile Candy Crawl Put on your shoes and join us as we move more and become healthier. The City of Davisboro, GA is promoting better health in their community by hosting a Zombie 5K & 1 Mile Candy Crawl. Before the race, participants will be given a flag belt, sort of like flag football. These flags represent your health. The Zombies want to take your flag and possible take a bite out of you. If you loose all your health flags, you will receive an "infected" medal at the finish line. If you finish with a flag, you will receive the "Survivor" medal at the finish line. You may also choose not to participate with flags and only run the 5K course through the City. The 1 Mile Candy Crawl will start soon after the last runner from 5K finishes. Children will be given a bag, in which they can run the one mile course and collect candy along the way. We want you to Move More, Live More! Davisboro, GA - (39.0 Miles)
