Riley Fall Festival 5K Zombie Run
Think You Can Outrun a Hungry Zombie?
The 5k Zombie Run gives you the chance to run for your lives from hungry Zombies through a 3.1 mile Road/Trail/Forest Run. This Run WILL NOT be timed. Participants must use their agility, intact brains, and teamwork to overcome obstacles and evade the hordes of Zombies. For those reasons, this run will not be officially timed. You may track your own time, however this time is NOT OFFICIAL, WILL NOT BE PUBLISHED, and IS NOT NECESSARY FOR PRIZE CONSIDERATION.
Before the race, you will be given a belt with balloons. These represent your health. The Zombies want to take your balloons and maybe eat your brains. Balloons are to be visible to course officials and Zombies (not covered by long clothing or tutus) and to be worn on the sides of the body. If you lose all your health balloons, you die and the Zombies win. You can still finish the race, but will not be eligible to win an award.
If being chased by Zombies isn’t enough, we will have a series of man-made and natural obstacles waiting for you throughout the course. Jump, slide, and climb your way through the obstacles all while Zombies are hot on your tail. Test your strength, speed, and wit as you battle your way to the finish.
Direct and intentional physical contact with any runner or Zombie is strictly prohibited. You are not to touch, hit, punch, tackle, roundhouse kick, slap, scratch, pinch, spit on, bite, or do anything harmful to the physical health of our Zombies or other runners… no matter how frightened or frightening you may be. Those in violation of this rule will be automatically disqualified and potentially escorted off of the grounds, without refund.
Working as a team with friends, family, and strangers is allowed and recommended… it’s the living vs. the undead. Use your juicy brains and the ones around you.
The registration fee is $25 if registered before October 16th after that $30.
