WHAT IS A ZOMBIE FUN RUN?
Race participants will be given three (3) flags to wear. Each race participant will try to run the 5.5-kilometer trail at Killarney Lake Park without losing all their flags to our race zombies. Race participants must be 12 years of age or accompanied by an adult.
CAN I BE A RACE ZOMBIE?
Yes, you can be a race zombie. The only zombies allowed on the race course are registered zombies. As a registered zombie, you will be placed on the course and given instructions as to your zombie duties. Not all zombies will be chasing runners; some will be stationary while trying to grab flags and others will be part of the creepy zombie atmosphere. We ask that all zombies stay in their position and roles at all times.
There is a prize for best dressed zombie character.
RUNNERS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DRESS AS ZOMBIES.
This is to ensure that runners can identify who can and cannot steal the race flags. Runners are encouraged to dress in character as well. No props such as water guns, foam swords or other defence/tactical gear will be allowed on the course. Runners must survive based solely on their stealth and speed. There is a prize for best dressed race character.
CAN I REGISTER AS A TEAM?
Yes, we encourage local companies, families and other groups to enter as a running team or a zombie team. Prizes will be awarded to the team with the highest pledges raised per team member. A team must have a minimum of 4 participants and a maximum of 8 participants.
The race fees are not tax-receiptable and non-refundable.
All pledge money collected offline must be submitted on race day.
WHAT WILL WE DO WITH YOUR DONATION?
All donations will be used to support the various programs and services provided by the Fredericton Sexual Assault Centre. These include our 24/7 crisis line, counselling services to women and support groups for male survivors, education programs for children and young adults, training for provincial service providers such as social workers, police officers, and medical providers. Last year, together we raised more than $10,000. Our goal for 2016 is to raise more than $15,000.
IS THERE A RAIN DATE?
No, there is no rain date. Please dress for the weather. This event will be held on Saturday, October 29 unless there is an apocalyse (heavy snowfall and roads are impassable). In the event of an apocalyse, this website and facebook page will be updated.
