The Event


The Zombie Challenge will make you run for your life from the zombies that want to eat your brains out. On this amazing 5k Zombie challenge route you will be in the bush with mud, obstacles and ZOMBIES!  You are not running against the clock you’re running from the zombie that will take your life lines!

ARRIVAL TIMES 
Runners and Teams 
need to arrive at 15:00 to sign in, receive your life lines and your runners number, the race will be starting 16:00 cut off time for registration will be at 15:45 
Zombies need to arrive at 14:00 to register and become a real Zombie,  The Zombie Transformation center will close at 15:30!
HALLOWEEN AFTER PARTY! - Zombie challenge and The Thirsty Giraffe will be holding an awesome halloween after party until late!!
 
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the belts in tag rugby each belt will have 3 red tags, the red tags are called your “life lines”.
 
It’s the zombie’s mission is to make sure you finish the race with no life line's so you become a brain eater just like them!
 
If you lose all your health flags, you will receive the "Infected" medal at the finish line.
 
If you finish with one or more flags, you will receive the "Survivor" medal at the finish line.
 

WHAT YOU’RE UP AGAINST
There will be zombies.  Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flag belt. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags. There will be mud and obstacles.
Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE “alive” with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”.  Finish the run but receive the "Infected" medal.  
 
HOW YOU’LL DO IT
There will be a start line, and a finish line and many obstacles - If you want to live run for your life!

 RUNNERS/TEAM RULES
Our zombies will be fed right before the race, but please remember:
 
Zombies will not physically contact any runner other than in attempt to pull a health flag.
Direct physical contact (pulling, grabbing, pushing, striking, etc.) between zombies and runners will not be permitted.

Do not taunt the zombies with your brains– that’s just plain mean.
 
Direct and intentional physical contact with any Zombie is strictly prohibited.  All of those in violation of this rule will be escorted off the grounds without a refund.  Those in violation may also be prosecuted depending on the severity of the act.

TEAMS:  If you form and run with a TEAM, and if any member of that team survives with a flag, the ENTIRE team receives the "Survivivor" medal!  The perfect reason to recruit your friends to be Zombie-fodder!

WANT TO BE A ZOMBIE INSTEAD?
To be a zombie you will need to arrive 2 Hours before the race for prepping and make up. Please remember wear your Halloween clothes as you may get blood stains from all the humans you eat (No joke, we will be covering you in fakeblood.)
