Info for those interested. . .
WHAT IS THIS?
This a 5K mud run infested with Zombies. You must complete the course by maneuvering all obstacles and avoiding Zombies. You will be outfitted with Life Flags that every Zombie will be looking to snatch at any cost.


OBSTACLES
Obstacles will be well-constructed and challenging to all levels of athlete or casual enthusiast. Expect a lot of mud.


WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
Your life if you’re lucky, but we’ll give you a survivor medal if you make it all the way through with at least one flag still left clinging to your body.


AWARDS
100% pure fake gold medallions for the survivors and 100% tinfoil Medals for the casualties of the Apocalypse.

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?
As a Runner, Zombie or Pansy

RUNNER RULES:
If all of your flags have been taken, you are NOT automatically transformed into a Zombie. Do NOT take another runner’s flags. You can be a Zombie later at the party.
Direct and intentional physical contact with any runner or zombie is strictly prohibited. You are not to touch, hit, punch, tackle, kick, slap, scratch, pinch, spit on, bite, text, email or do anything harmful to the physical health of our Zombies or other runners…. no matter how cool that may be. Those in violation of this rule will be automatically disqualified and potentially escorted off of the grounds, without refund. Just don’t do it.
Flags are to be visible to course officials and Zombies and are to be worn on the sides of the body.
Participants must wear their Escape The Walkers bib number clearly shown on the front of their attire. Participants will not be allowed to race without an official number.
Staging is 10 minutes before your race wave. You must run in the wave that you registered for.
Working as a team with friends, family and strangers is allowed and recommended…it’s you vs. the Walkers- “get er done”.
If you appear unfit, drunk or otherwise a potential danger to yourself or others, you will not be allowed to race and no refund will be given, but thanks for the donation to a great cause.
Runners must be 16 years of age or older by race day in order to participate.

WHAT TO BRING
Yourself, clothed if possible.
Official ID (license, passport, photo ID, etc) or a parent/guardian if you are a minor. You will not be allowed on site otherwise.
A signed race waiver. Participants under the age of 18 must have their waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

You will be covered in mud, zombie guts, body parts, and other apocalyptic liquids after the race so bring a towel and change of clothing. We will have changing areas sponsored by Clear Plastic Shower liners inc.
Bring a chair or a blanket to chill and watch the bands.
Wear appropriate clothing and accessories (i.e. umbrellas, warm gear, cold gear, wet gear, etc.).


“AFTER THE APOCALYPSE” PARTY
This is where you can party like it’s the end of the world or just watch the freaks as they do the same. Cool music and other entertainment. It’s an all day event.
