SURVIVE is an undead adventure race with zombies, vampires, and even some werewolves. Race participants attempt to reach 4 way points in the shortest amount of time. Each participant starts out as a "human" and tries to avoid being captured and turned into a "zombie."
Further description of obstacles:
1. Way Points. Participants are not told where the way points are located. Therefore, they are not bound to run one specific path, direction, or distance. Instead they are encouraged to find their own route to reach waypoints the fastest. There will be 4 way points and the shortest distance one can run to find all 4 and finish the race is approximately 5K. Note: This distance is only approximate and not measured.
2. Zombie Apocalypse. At the same time that race participants ("humans") start their run, "zombies" will be released into the playfield from a secret location. These "zombies" will attempt to capture the "humans" and turn them into "zombies" as well. Once a "human" is captured, that person is turned into a "zombie" and will try to capture "humans" as well.
Prizes will be awarded for the fastest "human" to find all way points and finish safely as a human, the participant who was turned into a zombie and captured the most humans, and the best zombie, werewolf, or vampire costume.
* Following the race, the SURVIVE Costume Party will continue with live music, food and drink, and awards. This will be held at Norfolk Botanical Garden.
