There has been an outbreak on JBLM! You are one of the few who have yet to catch the toxic virus that has transformed the community into flesh-eating zombies. We need all who have not been infected to report to the quarantine containment area for safety. Infected individuals can be recognized by the following symptoms: tattered clothing, bruising of the face and hands, and open wounds. We are actively seeking a fierce Zombie Hunter who can take charge and lead the way. Individual must possess fearlessness, knowledge of zombies, equipment necessary for survival, and military-grade clothing. (NO real weapons please. Any props must be stored on individual’s body or at the race hub for actual run).
All participants who register by 2 October 2017 will receive a t-shirt and finisher medal.
The first 800 participants will also receive free entry into "Walk in the Dark" at Shoreline Park, good for either the 19th or 26th of October.
Please note: Active.com will charge a $3.25 processing fee.

That's okay! We have a "DECON" tent located on the course for an opportunity to gain an additional life.
Photo opportunities will be at the end of the final heat. We will bring all zombies back to the race hub to pose for pictures with the participants. This is not a one-on-one photo opportunity. This is a chance to get a custom photo with multiple zombies lurking behind you.
