Registration for this event as of 7/15 is already over 60% so register quickly on the site and then RSVP your heat. I will be letting everyone know where we are meeting at the festival after the races.
Be a Runner:
As a runner, you’ll traverse a 3.2-mile/5K obstacle course filled with hungry zombies that will chase your every move, and will have only one objective: to escape alive with at least one flag remaining on your belt. With your admission you’ll receive a complimentary event shirt, festival admission, and a medal upon finishing.
Be a Zombie:
You’re the lifeblood of the entire obstacle course. Arrive for your shift and prepare to be made over by Hollywood makeup artists and transformed into a terrifying member of the undead legion. After SFX, you’ll enter the obstacle course and will chase as many runners as possible, with one objective: steal the flags off of their belts. After a runner has no remaining flags, they become “infected”. As thanks for your reign of terror, you’ll receive complimentary all-day admission to the festival.
Zombie Infested 5K Obstacle Course + Music Festival in New Orleans Z-Day, a zombie infested 5K run and obstacle course, plus the Z-Day Festival, an outdoor celebration of New Orleans music, food, and subculture, will take place in Kenner’s Laketown on September 21, 2013. The 5K will consist of 4,000 to 8,000 runners who are chased by “zombies” through a military style obstacle course, with heats every half hour from 8:00 am until 4:00 pm. The Z-Day Festival will begin at 8:00 am and end at 5:00 PM with musical acts headlined by Johnny Sketch & the Dirty Notes plus Flow Tribe, and food and alcoholic beverages provided by New Orleans’ greatest vendors.
