Catawba Brewery White Zombie 5K.
Catawba Brewery White Zombie 5K. Asheville’s Catawba Brewing Company sponsors White Zombie 5k. The first-ever White Zombie 5k on will be run Saturday, June 1, 2019. Deadline for registration is May 29. The run, which begins at 9 am, caps off the last day of Asheville Beer Week. Participants are invited to run or walk from Catawba’s South Slope tasting room through downtown Asheville while dodging zombies in several “Outbreak Zones” along the way.
Racers are encouraged to dress as zombies or other Catawba characters such as Farmer Ted, Evening Joe or the Hopnesss Monster. A beer token is included with registration for those zombie/racers who are 21 years and older. All participants will receive a ZOMBIE race bib. Dogs and strollers are allowed but must start at the back of the pack.
Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female overall finishers, the top male and female in the Masters Division (40 and older) and the top male and female in the Grandmasters Division (50 and older.)
Catawba will donate 3.5 meals per registration to MANNA FoodBank. Kara Irani, director of marketing and communications for MANNA said the donation makes a difference. “The funds from the Zombie 5k will really make a life-saving difference to the people across Western North Carolina who will have a full plate because of the race participants.”
Billy Pyatt, co-owner of Catawba Brewing Co, explained that the company’s mission is comprised of six pillars and “give back and make our region a better place is one we hold near and dear to our heart,” Pyatt said.
Registration, which cost $40, closes today. For information or to register, call 828-338-8380 or visit WhiteZombie5K.
