Event Day Schedule:
Grounds open at 7 a.m., first wave leaves at 7:15 a.m.
Waves leave in 15 or 30 minute intervals.
You must select a preferred start time when you register for the run. Show up at least a half hour early to allow time for parking and to find the start line.
This was a very popular run last year and start times are going to sell out fast. Sign up early for best pricing and to insure you get your preferred start time.
Last wave leaves at noon and the celebration continues at the base camp with a post-apocalypse after party. Grab a cold craft brew at the beer garden to celebrate with friends and enjoy the festivities.
Party ends at 3 p.m.
Things to Note:
Survive the running course without a zombie taking your flag belt and win a free craft brew from the beer garden! Those under 21 win a free soft drink of their choice. (Limit one per person and those competing in the team competition are not eligible).
Distance: this course is a full 3-4K of pure zombie mayhem. Do you have what it takes?
Spectators: it is entirely free for spectators to be at the base camp and observe the carnage. Cheer on your friends and have a toast with them in the beer garden at the post-apocalypse after party!
Kids: this is a family friendly event. There will be a kid’s zone at the base camp with activities and attractions for the young zombie survivors to enjoy. There is also a special trail for kids to run where there will be no zombies to frighten them. This trail is entirely sectioned off from the scary adult trail. It will feature an exercise where the kids are tasked with running the course to find bottles of zombie antivirus to stop the spread of the disease.
A percentage of the proceeds support Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden to assist in increasing awareness about native plant life and sustainable habitats. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and the Red Cross are among the other charitable organizations that will be beneficiaries of this event. Please join us in showing support for these great organization and we will make sure you have fun doing it!
