About The Race
As a “Survivor” your zombie survival skills will be tested. You will receive a 2 minute head start. So, once the last of you who dare to challenge our Zombie friends crosses the start line, the 2 minute clock starts and thus begins your last chance for escaping the hoards waiting to snatch your precious lifelines. After the 2 minutes are up, let the games begin! The game you ask? Allow us to elaborate. Consider it a game of cat and mouse. Or, should we say the hunted and the hunter?
This trail run requires stamina, sure footing, and a quick mind to out game the Zombies. For those of you who only run when being chased...the "Survivor” category could be just right for you. As for the “Zombie” category, you have your reasons and we don’t discriminate, come one come all. At registration please choose which you will be, Survivor or Zombie.
This night of fun and fear will start at dusk, with hidden spectacles for all to enjoy. Even our spectators will be able to feel a part of the action as they watch your moves throughout the course on our live web cam. And, for those friends or family members who can’t come to the course to partake in the fun, they can view it here on our website in real time.
Survivors have a belt with two flags, (or lifelines) attached to their waists. The Zombies will be trying to snatch these flags during the race. Do your best to out run your Zombie foe. The Survivor who crosses the finish line first with at least one flag, i.e. lifeline still attached to their belt wins the Survivor category. The Zombie, who crosses the finish line first with at least one flag in hand, will receive first prize in the Zombie category. The Zombie with the most flags will be given the award of "King" or "Queen of the Living Dead”. (Please read course rules for further explanation.)
We will be having a huge awards show with amazing prizes from our Sponsors for top place finishers as well as our costume contest winners.
Don’t forget the “After Party” with music, Portland’s Favorite Food Carts and Rogue and Voodoo Doughnuts.
One last thing... this is a trail run in Portland mid October, be prepared for possible mud and rain. This adds to the adventure of the Zombie Apocalypse 5k Trail Run.
