Your primary goal is simple– don’t die! Your secondary goal is to cross the finish line alive in our zombie infested 5K race benefiting the American Red Cross. Before the race, you will be given a flag belt that must be tied around your waist and worn with one flag on each hip and one flag on your lower back. These flags represent your lives. It is your goal to finish the race with at least 1 life flag. It is the zombies’ goal to take all of your lives and maybe a limb or two. Just like in a video game, once all 3 of your lives are gone, you “die”, which means: You must suffer the shame & embarrassment of knowing that you are not fit enough to survive a real zombie apocalypse! In the event you lose all three lives, you will still be able to complete the course and receive an official Zombie Run 5K time and finishers medal. Awards will given to the first male & female finishers and the first male & female survivors to cross the finish line with at least one life flag attached. Regardless of race outcome, all participants and spectators are invited to the post-race Survival Bash at Thunder Alley.
