Stuck between the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean, there’s not a lot of places to hide from the Zombie Apocalypse. On October 19th, you reach Amelia Earhart Park but the zombies are everywhere! Run through the swarm in order to reach Apocalypse HQ where Survival Experts will check for bite marks, you may be infected!
All three flags must be situated at your waist on your backside
Bibs must be placed on the front (no bibs on the back or legs)
Zombies may NEVER touch you, only go for a single flag
You must run the entire course to be a survivor
Areas on the trail that are gravel or loose ground will NEVER have runner zombies
If you have at least one flag left your ribbon will be marked as a “survivor” for your medal
If you have no flags you’ll have an “infected” ribbon mark for your medal
If you participated as a zombie well you’ll be marked with a “zombie” medal
EVERYONE gets the same medal, only the checked off space on the ribbon separates survivor, infected and zombie
Have fun, you must laugh and smile a lot, even when running for your life 😉
