Fresno's first Zombie Run is set for Sat., Oct.19, at Woodward Park, with the first wave of runners launching at 10 a.m.
The Fresno Zombie Run is a zombie-infested 5K obstacle race. You are running against the clock and a ravenous horde of brain-hungry, virus-spreading zombies:
Before the race you will be given a flag belt.
These flags represent your health.
The zombie want to eat your brains and anything else they deem eatable, and they accomplish this by taking your flags.
If you lose all of your health flags, you are infected with the zombie virus, but you can not take the flags from other runners.
Even if you are infected, you retain a semblance of your humanity to stumble across the finish line.
There are no losers in this race! Only zombies and soon to become zombies...
WHAT YOU ARE UP AGAINST
Man-eating, flesh crazy, ravenous zombies.
Runners can choose to avoid the obstacles, but the zombies are another matter entirely.
It is your job to avoid the zombie horde, it is the zombie hordes job to find you and eat your brains, and take your flags!
Don’t become a Man-Wich!
Use any strategy necessary to make it to the end with at least one flag, run in groups and sacrifice the weak and slower runners.
