Salt Lake Comic Con is excited to announce The Hero Dash is about to run from a zombie invasion! We are joining forces with Utah Rotary’s Zombie Run for an epic event with music, running, games, and more.

Join us on October 25th at Liberty Park for a 5k fun run followed by a concert by Alex Boye. Dress as a zombie or a hero, and come have fun while doing good! Complete in our Hero Dash COSTUME CONTEST to win FanX Passes, merch, and other goodies.

There will be a bounce house for the kids, booths to visit, and cosplayers will be available for photo ops.

About Operation: Underground Railroad:

  O.U.R. was established to rescue children from the sex slave tourism industry. A major component of our plan to rescue children is a television series called The Abolitionists. The remedy that ended slavery in the nineteenth century was not initially offered up by the government. It was not a top-down solution, but a bottom-up approach. It was the people who stood up and said, enough is enough. It was people like Harriett Beecher Stowe, who wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin and thus shined a bright light on the evils that too many hid their eyes from. Once the people could no longer ignore the problem, they acted. If we are to stop modern day sex slavery, we too must shine a light. We must expose this problem like nothing has before, making it too risky for child sex organizations and their customers to carry on their business as usual. Our television show will do this. With the help of Jerry Molen, Academy Award-winning producer of Schindler’s List, our production teams will follow our Underground Jump Team as they enter the darkest corners of the world in order to rescue children and end the reign of their captors. It will be a reality television show like no other, and it will be instrumental to ending modern day slavery.
