Is there a difference between the 5k, 15k, and Zombie Race?
The Zombie Race has 5k waves and one 15k wave. The Zombie Race is not separate from the 5k and 15k. Each wave has obstacles and zombies chasing runners. They are attempting to steal health flags from runners. You can sign up to be a runner or zombie. If you want to be both, you can sign up for each at register.zombierace.co

What in the blue hell is Zombie Race?
Zombie Race is a 5k & 15k obstacle course with zombies.
From the moment you leave the start line, you’ll be running, climbing, crawling, and fleeing in horror from the hordes of undead whose only mission is to devour you alive! Will you survive not only the obstacles and the ravenous monsters, but the fear within yourself? Only you can decide.
Should I do it?
It's your choice. You can remain a regular, lazy-ass, experienced couch potato and live your boring mundane life or come Escape the WEAKday and unleash your inner zombie.
How long is the race?
The Zombie Race 5k is between 3 - 4 miles.
The Zombie Race 15k is between 9-10 miles.
How does the whole Zombie Race exactly work?
It’s very simple. When you register, you are given a flag belt with three health flags on it. Wear it so that one is on each hip, and one is behind you. Zombies will attempt to take your health flags. Each zombie may only take ONE health flag. Zombies cannot take your health flags if you are on, or in line for, an obstacle. If you make it to the finish line with at least one health flag, you survived. DO NOT hide the health flags under your clothes, or tuck them in in any way. This is cheating, and will get you disqualified.
Will I become a zombie if I loose all of my health flags?
You will not become a zombie, and cannot attack other runners. Doing so is a violation of the rules and will get you disqualified and asked to leave. However, you can still finish the race while you are infected.
Will I still get a finisher medal even if I loose all of my health flags?
Yes. You will get a finisher medal whether you finish the race dead or alive. Use it as motivation for the next outbreak!
Can zombies physically attack the runners?
No! No biting, tackling, pushing, or grabbing of anything but one health flag per runner is allowed. If you do any of these things, you will be escorted out of Zombie Race with no refund or perks.
Are there different kinds of zombies?
Yes. We have fast zombies – who are permitted to chase runners and take their flags, and slow shambling zombies who are not permitted to move quickly. If you sign up to be a zombie, you will be assigned a zombie type, and should act accordingly.
How many zombies will be on the course?
Nobody knows! A zombie outbreak is unpredictable.
What if I do not fulfill my zombie tasks?
Not only will you embarrass the whole zombie clan, you will be asked to sit out of the race.
Will it be difficult?
Zombie Race is a challenge but not impossible. You'll be glad you did it. It's gonna be a hell of a time!
How do I know how fast I ran?
Zombie Race is not timed. Surviving the race with a health flag is the goal not finishing it fast.
Is there a time limit to finish the course?
No. You can walk the course or bypass any obstacle if you wish.
Is it easy to get lost on the course?
No. The course is marked so you'll know what direction to run in.
How does each obstacle work?
You won't know exactly til race day! Zombie fanatics relish challenging surprises! Click on your location's page for a detailed map of the race.
Can a fellow runner help me get through an obstacle if I cannot do it by myself?
Sure. Most runners have spectacular sportsmanship. You will see a lot of strangers helping strangers.
Can I participate in Zombie Race if I can't swim?
Sure, bring a life vest. Some bodies of water might be too deep for you to stand but you can walk around the obstacle.
Is it safe?
Participating in Zombie Race has risk. Please enter at your own discretion. There will be medical personnel and an ambulance at the event in case of an emergency.
Will I be able to participate even if I am in bad shape or don't exercise regularly?
Finishing the race is about how mentally tough you are more than how physically fit you are.
How can I get in better shape for Zombie Race?
1. Have your friends and family dress up as Zombies. Then have them chase you around the neighborhood. (1-5 mile runs recommended)
2. Dig a mud pit in your neighbor's yard to bathe in
4. Hydrate with H20
5. Eat Well
6. Sleep Well
7. Be mentally tough and know that you can succeed
Can we form a team?
Will there be a photographer to take pictures of me and my zombie-crazy friends?
Hell Yeah! The pictures will be available on Zombie Race's photo webpage for purchase after the weekend.
Where can my friends and family take pictures of me?
The best place is near the finish line.
