Yeah, we know it should be total CHAOS with freaking Zombies running around, but we need a little order so we keep as little actual blood off the course as possible!

RULES FOR ALL

 

Mostly Common Sense but you’d be surprised…

  • You must be 18 years of age to compete alone. – (Little people get lost in the woods & eaten)
  • Teenagers 13 – 17 years of age MUST compete with a parent or legal guardian.
  • No pets of any kind are allowed in the wasteland (our course).(Sure they won’t bite humans, but who knows what will happen when they meet a ZOMBIE!)
  • No weapons, play weapons, fire, sharp objects or gear considered dangerous by the organizers will not be allowed. – (even if it’s part of your costume)
  • No physical contact between participants. Shoving, pushing, defending your flag, or any aggressive behavior will not be tolerated in the Run Challenge. You will be asked to immediately leave the course if observed or reported by participants, staff or volunteers. – (This event is for good natured fun and should be played that way)
  • ZOMBIES and HUMANS must stay in the course boundaries as defined by the organizers.
  • Any verbal or written instruction by organizers must be strictly followed at all times!
  • The JACKASS rule: If you are making other participants uncomfortable, not playing nice, fair, or in the spirit of the competition, organizers reserve the right to require you to leave at any point without further explanation (or refund).

HUMAN RULES

  • You must keep your flag belt and race bib on at all times.
  • You cannot leave the course boundaries (set in advance) and specifically, you cannot step on concrete (sidewalks, driveways or likewise) at any time. You will be considered eaten and disqualified.
  • You may wear anything you like (we hope you dress up!) but you must be able to get a flag belt around your waste and a race bib attached to your chest.

ZOMBIE RULES

  • You must keep your headband and race bib on at all times.
  • You cannot leave the course boundaries (set in advance) and specifically, you cannot step on concrete (sidewalks, driveways or likewise) at any time.
  • You cannot touch/walk/run or contact SAND. It’s scientifically proven to dissolve ZOMBIES, so don’t do it.
  • If you are shot by a ZOMBIE HUNTER, you must sit on the ground until the hunter tells you that you can get back up (typically one to two minutes). You cannot “eat” a HUMAN while “stunned” by a Hunter. ZOMBIE HUNTERS are staff/volunteers and can disqualify you for not listening to their instructions.

More detailed rules will be given to registered participants in advance.
