The Hyattsville Zombie Run is back in all its in-person ghoolishness, friends!! Saturday, October 16th is the date when registrants will run, walk, skip along a great course with neighbors costumed as zombies, unicorns, pumpkins – and some even as themselves! – at this wonderful fundraiser for our local schools! Can’t do in-person? There’s a virtual option, too!
Want to be a part of the action? Good call! Register here today and then share the link with your network! We always have a great time seeing the fun costumes and running for a good cause (sometimes with our children on our backs…)!

I don’t want to run, but I want to support the racers and the schools. What can I do? You can donate! You can donate to Hyattsville Elementary School, other local schools, or to a specific racer. 100% of donations to other schools will go to those schools’ PTA/PTO or directly to the school.
To donate to a local school, select one from here: Hyattsville Zombie Run Select a Charity
To donate to a specific runner, see the list of racers who have created individual fundraiser pages here: Hyattsville Zombie Run Individual Fundraiser Pages
You can also volunteer! Please touch base with us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about volunteer opportunities.
I don’t live in Hyattsville. Can I still run this virtual race? Yes! Register as usual for the race–just please add $3.00 as a donation for postage when you make your order. Then email us at email@example.com to let us know that you’d like your t-shirt mailed to you.
I have a question that isn’t answered here. Who do I contact? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
