PLEASE NOTE FOR OUR PARTICIPANTS:

For those of you that didn't get your promised T-shirt, we are working on rectifying that. The truth is that we had quite a lot of shirts stolen from us on race day :( However that is not our customers problems and we are working on fixing that for people that signed up for but didn't get a tshirt. We are also working on resolving the issues in regards to goodie bags and race prizes.  However please note that in order to get a tshirt you would have had to register for the race by October 5th on Active.com.  Our apologies for our first year mistakes (first race ever for us) and please understand we are working very hard on fixing them. 

If you didn't get a tshirt or goodie bag please email us your T-shirt size or that you didn't get a goodie bag to:  runningdeadtshirt@gmail.com and we will put you into the tshirt order.  We will also email you with details after they are printed for pickup.  Thank you for your understanding and our apologies for not being able to get you them on Race Day.

HOW IT WORKS:

Running Dead is an apocalyptic 5k obstacle mud run (race).  You aren't just running against the clock- you are running from zombies!

THE BASICS (RULES): 

  • Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the game of flag football. These flags represent your health.
  • The zombies want to take your flags and maybe eat your brains.
  • If you lose all your health flags, you die. And the zombies win.

 

YOU ARE FACING: 

  • Throughout the 5K  obstacle race, there will be a series of man-made and natural obstacles for you to complete. Runners may choose NOT to complete an obstacle, BUT any runner who skips an obstacle will not be eligible for prizes.
  • There will be zombies. Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flag belt. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags.
  • Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE “alive” with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”;  your time will be recorded, but you will not be eligible for awards.

THIS IS LIKE A GAME OF FLAG FOOTBALL MEANING OTHER THAN FLAGS PULLING THERE IS NO CONTACT BETWEEN RUNNER AND ZOMBIE.  SO RUNNERS YOU CANNOT GO TALLAHASEE  (ZombieLand) ON ZOMBIES IE NO BASEBALL BATTING, SHOOTING, PUNCHING OR KICKING OR OTHERWISE HARMING OUR ZOMBIE VOLUNTEERS. ZOMBIES VOLUNTEERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO GO BATH SALTS ON RUNNERS AND EAT THEIR FACES/BRAINS OR IN ANY WAY HARM OUR RUNNERS.  WE DIDN'T THINK WE WOULD HAVE TO SPELL THAT OUT BUT YOU WOULD BE SHOCKED AT THE RANGE OF QUESTIONS WE HAVE BEEN FIELDING!

 

As this race will involve flags and chasing we will go over in depth all the rules via email prior to the race and will also talk about them with participants on race day.  Thanks !
