About This Activity

What is Zombie Rush?
Zombie Rush is a 5k run with zombie immersion chase, filled with hordes of the undead to chase after you. When we say full immersion that means participating in a heart pounding, non-stop, and action packed adrenalized experience, that will take you on a one of a kind trip navigating through the post-apocalyptic aftermath. Touted as one of the most exciting, safest and well organized races out there!
The chase starts in the compound area from our signature start line. It is protected from the zombie infested quarantine zone by barricades of chain link fence, tires, pallets and whatever else our team finds.
Your objective is to traverse through the apocalyptic aftermath and zombie zones. The zombies will be in the chase zones and this is where you will have to sprint, dodge, jump, and roll or do your best zombies juke! You will have health flags that the zombies really, really, really want! Finish the race with at least one health flag and earn the coveted “Survivor Medal”. Lose all your flags and you will have one chance to gain a health flag back at our revive station, but it won’t be easy. Finish with no health flags, you are considered infected and receive no medal. Not all is lost though, we will still give you a really cool Zombie Rush t-shirt for your effort and there’s that awesome apocalypse after party, which only Zombie Rush knows how to throw!
What is The Compound?
The compound will be surrounded with chain link fence to keep out the undead. This is your safe haven from the zombies, where the fun starts and continues after your chase experience ends. We have our in house “D.J. Cisco” spinning hot fresh tunes for you throughout the event. Enjoy our great food vendors, beverages and after party. This is ground zero for the “Zombie Invasion Show” exclusive to Zombie Rush Race only. There will be lots to do and see in the zombie themed compound. Bring your camera because you will not want to miss the many cool props, signs and vehicles in our venue. There will also be a few Zombies and Zombie Hunters to take pictures with in and around the venue.
Enjoy our activity filled venue while jamming out to the beats of our in house D.J., straight out of Miami! This crew can definitely bring the party when it comes to music and spinning the latest and greatest. No other race throws an after party like Zombie Rush.
Zombie Invasion Show
ATTENTION! There will be a breach in the perimeter fence by incoming zombies at sometime during the day! Listen for the emergency broadcast followed by the zombie sirens. This is sure to send chills down your spine as a live horde of zombies spill into the compound area and move swiftly toward their human targets…you. Not to worry, our Zombie Response Team will be alerted and respond to the invasion not a minute too soon. Stand back and enjoy the show as they take down the horde of zombies and save your hide! You really want to have your cameras out for this one. Note: all spectators will be ushered behind a safe line. This is a live performance, which involves large moving vehicles, special effects smoke and a cast of actors. If you are interested in being a zombie actor in this live performance show for free, please contact Brian at (brian@ultimate-combatant.com)
