The mist rises in the air as the sun begins to come over the horizon and your heart is pounding, your mind is racing but you’ve prepared for this and you’re determined to make it to the safe zone as a Survivor!!! (Or at least to the ZombieFest After-Party) It’s early morning and the spooky sounds from the DJ booth is already amping you up for the beautiful run ahead through the trails of Quiet Waters Park. Little do you know, it’s not going to be so quiet at Quiet Waters because there’s hordes of zombies waiting for you (okay, okay, now you know). Be prepared for stationary, walker and running zombie zones because it’s going to take a little speed and fancy footwork to get to the finish line with at least one of your “three lives” (AKA: Flags) attached. The race is just part of it, because they’ll be a killer ZombieFest after-party complete with Zombie DJ, Games and of course 125 Zombies performing “Thriller”!
LIKE A LIVE VIDEO GAME (Register as a Runner or a Zombie):
So now you’re wondering how does this whole thing work? It’s simple, this is a chip timed, mat start 5K race with a twist. You leave the start line with three velcro flags attached to your back waist (we supply it with your registration). You run the course as fast as you can avoiding stationary, walker and runner zombie stations. We admit it won’t be easy but if you’re reasonably fast the course is designed so that survival is possible. As you approach most areas on the course you’ll be warned that the infected have been sighted and to watch out.
You’ll be sent a complete rule sheet as well as need to show up at the park made up as a zombie 90 minutes before the first wave start time. You will be instructed to go to your zone with all your other zombie friends. 45 minutes after the last wave starts all zombies will walk back to the ZombieFestival pavilion where all 125 of you will perform “Thriller” for the runners and spectators. Don’t worry, we’ll have a thriller leader for you to follow.
* All three flags must be situated at your waist on your backside
* Bib much be situated 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
* If you participated as a zombie well you’ll be marked with a “zombie” medal
* You must have fun, you must laugh and smile a lot
