About Us

The ROTD is AWESOME, and also the original zombie run in Syracuse.  In all seriousness, the ROTD is not simply a road run with some actors chasing after you: this is an obstacle course through a hand-created, wooded trail with original/challenging obstacles, and plenty of places for our zombies to hang out and hide.  Not only have we built some really cool obstacles, but the area has also blessed us with some great natural obstacles (including mud, lots of mud) and the forest looks like something out of a horror movie, especially in the fall.  Also, your admission grants you access to our event, complete with food, music, vendors, adult beverages, and a bonfire.  And the best part,  you are supporting a great cause: the Wilderness Search and Rescue Team. These are the guys that come find you if you get lost in the woods, hiking camping or running from zombies!
