All runners will register as either Zombie or Human. If Zombie, they should dress as such and will start the race 2 minutes after the humans begin their run. The whole point of the race is to see an army of undead chasing the living. No contact along the course other than normal physical contact expected at a race will be permitted. Costumes are optional but greatly encouraged, especially for anyone in the 1 Mile 'Creep n' Crawl'.
Because this is a Halloween/Zombie-themed race we are going to take every precaution in keeping participants safe. No props will be allowed in during the race or at the event that could harm anyone (didn’t your mother teach you not to run with scissors?). Each participant will be required to sign and agree to the terms and conditions of the Registration Agreement and Liability Waiver. In our previous five years, with over 4,000 participants, we have had no misbehaving rascals, and no severe injuries.
Night of the Running Dead 5K is first and foremost for FUN and to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Foundation. We ask participants to be courteous and patient with other runners and volunteers. Chip timing is provided for all participants this year.
Age divisions have also been established so that runners who want to compare their times to others in their same age group can do so, however winners in these divisions will not be eligible for the overall cash prizes, but fun zombie themed prizes will still be awarded as well as medals for different divisions.
Shirts & Packets
This year's T-shirt will be a technical shirt. Shirts will be available during packet pickup and on race day. To speed up the process, please have a printed copy of your registration with you, or have it available to view on a mobile device.
T-shirts will be reserved for each pre-registered runner and cannot be exchanged (due to wrong size, etc.) until after the event. Same day registration shirts will be available as supplies last.
