You’re invited to the Run of the Dead 5k and Scavenger Hunt.
This is a totally original concept. Instead of simply walking or running while being chased by zombies, you have the option of finding and collecting certain items along the course. Depending what items or secrets you solve, you will be rewarded with a handmade skull trophy. Sure, the fastest time will get a trophy, best costume will get a trophy, but there are advantages to going slower as well. Not all of the clues will be in plain site. It will take a detective's eye to spot many of them! Items will need to be turned into the DJ booth at the end of race for your trophy.
So, if you love 5ks, DJ’s, Zombies, Halloween, Scavenger Hunts, Crazy Costumes and just plain having fun, what are you waiting for? Sign up now! I promise this just might be the coolest 5k you have ever done! Plus, you get a t-shirt… and everyone LOVES t-shirts!
You will receive a Run of the Dead T-Shirt if you register before October 8, 2016.
$30 per person // If you have a team of 4 of more, you'll receive a $5 discount on each person (so, $25 a person)
Registration: 6:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
Race starts at 7:10 p.m.
Trophies will be awarded for: Best Costume, 1st place male and female runners, as well as multiple trophies for different things regarding the Scavenger Hunt.
How long is this event?
5k (3.1 miles) run/walk, however due to course layouts it could be slightly shorter or longer.
How is the event timed?
-The event is self timed. We will provide a digital timer at the finish line that you’ll be able to look at. We will keep track of the 1st place female and male winners so they can be rewarded their trophies.
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes, all participants must sign a waiver.
Can I bring my child?
It is a zombie 5k... so, it's the parents call on what age to bring their children (no babies like mentioned above). If you’re under 12 please have an adult with you. No discounted rate though.
Are there refunds?
There are no refunds. You’ll have a great time, why would you back out of it?
Can I transfer my registration?
No, you cannot transfer your registration. Trust me, you’ll have a blast! You won’t want to miss out!
Is there a gear check?
Will there be obstacles?
-No. The terrain might be a bit uneven at times, as if zombies aren’t enough to deal with.
Can we bring a dog or baby in a stroller?
-No, our zombies are trained to eat them first.
Can we dress up for the run?
-Yes, costumes are encouraged as our zombies love to be entertained while they’re chasing their prey.
What do I get if I win the Costume contest and/or win the race?
-A one of a kind award of course!
Will zombies come into physical contact with me?
-No. These zombies have been hand dug from the ground and fed cow brains minutes before the race. They will still want to get a close look at you though.
Can I bring weapons to defend myself against zombies?
-The answer is no. Please just run from them. Zombies are rare enough, let’s not harm them.
What happens if it rains?
-The race will go on as planned, and you will get wet.
Will they be actual zombies?
-That is enough questions for now…
