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.
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-receptible and non-refundable.
All pledge money collected offline must be submitted on race day.
WHAT WILL WE DO WITH YOUR DONATION?
Your donations will go to fund our counseling program for survivors of sexual violence. Last year, together, we raised more than $10,000. Our goal for 2017 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 28 unless there is an apocalypse (heavy snowfall and roads are impassable).
In the event of an apocalypse, this website and Facebook page will be updated.
If you have any concerns, please contact us for help!
