The Zombie Warrior Run FAQ’s
How old do I have to be to participate?
8 is the minimum age for the 5K, and only with a signed waiver from a parent or guardian. The 1-mile Fun Run is for anyone of any age with a signed waiver.
Is there a difference between the 5k and 1-mile Fun Run?
They are two different distances. The 5k is 3.1 miles. The 1-mile Fun Run is 1 mile. Both the 5k and 1-mile Fun Run will have zombies. The 5k will have 3 waves depending on the number that register. The zombies in both races are attempting to steal health flags from runners. You can sign up to be a runner or zombie. There are a limited number of zombie spots available.
Will I get hurt?
Hopefully not, but if it should happen, we will have a First Aid Tent.
Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds.
Can I transfer my ticket to someone else?
Yes. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can I switch my registration from a runner, to a zombie, or vice versa?
Possibly, if there is space. Email us at email@example.com
Zombie spaces are limited but we will accommodate anyone who wishes to switch if we can. Anyone wishing to switch from a zombie to a runner can do so for an additional fee as it is costlier to be a runner.
When is the last day I can register?
Online registration closes on October 13, 2017 at 10pm. Walk up registration is welcome but there is an increase in price and a t-shirt is not guaranteed so be sure to register early!
Why are you thinking of doing wave times for runners?
Each “wave” releases a set number of victims/runners at a time, to give the zombie horde a better chance at grabbing a snack, and to make it more of a challenge for the runners!
Can I dress up?
Absolutely. Zombies are asked to arrive dressed to kill!
Will there be food & drinks?
Yes. Bring cash for food & beverage purchases at the Warrior party.
I registered for the race. When do I get more information?
An email will go out with all the information you need about a week before race. There will be no tickets mailed.
Can I come just to watch?
Definitely. You can come because you’ll have a great time even if you don’t race. Just show up to socialize, eat food, cheer for your friends and party! Spectators get in free.
Do I need to register to be a spectator to come hang out?
No, but remember to bring some extra cash for food, drink and merchandise.
Will there be drinking water available after the race for runners?
Yes of course! There will be water stations on the course as well.
How old do you need to be in order to participate in the race?
Runners under age 18 must have the participation waiver signed by a parent prior to arriving to the race. Spectators can be of any age and do not need a participation waiver.
Are there different kinds of zombies?
Yes. We have three types of zombies. There are fast zombies – who are permitted to chase runners and take their flags. Crawler zombies- who do just that! Crawler Zombies have a tendency to get up for a short period of time, stumble around and then go back to their crawling position. Creeper zombies who are not permitted to move quickly. They just walk slowly. If you sign up to be a zombie, you will be assigned a zombie type, and should act accordingly.
Is there a time limit to finish the course?
No. You can walk the course if you wish.
