Course Description:

Running Dead will be zombie infested 5k obstacle course mud run. For those of you who are not familiar with this format it means that we will have military style training obstacles that you would see in a boot camp, as well mud pits, Callson Manor blood cannons, that you must traverse in order to survive the zombie apocalypse. Also, each runner will have flag football flags attached to their waists that the zombies will try to take, but if you make it to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) with at least one of your flags still attached you have officially survived the zombie apocalypse! If not, you will be lost to the world of the undead. You had better get training now, because remember, zombies hate fast food!

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

  • 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 !

Racing bibs and chip timers will be used by all runners during Running Dead. The chips will make sure your time is accurately recorded. The bibs will play a large role in identifying if you have been transformed into a zombie.
