About This Activity

The Heidi-Festers are excited to announce a new event this year, the 2016 ZOMBIE CRAWL!  
For anyone that has done our previous event "HeidiSeek", this is similar but with some added twists!  :)  
There will also be a Chicken Q, Basket Raffle, Music, and Misc. Raffles.
Proceeds benefit local families affected by cancer. 

The HeidiFest Zombie Crawl is a blend of several types of races featuring aspects of a Color Run, Zombie Run, Scavenger Hunt, even a hint of Ragnar (since this is a relay)
- Team format: 2-4 per team
- ENTRY FEE - $25 PLUS A BASKET DONATION to our Basket Raffle 
- Date:  Saturday, October 29th
- Time: Check-in at 3:00 - 3:30 p.m.   Instructions: 3:40    Start time: 4:00 p.m.
- Where - Check-in at Eagles Bar, Independence, WI
- Walk, Run, Jog, or Crawl, but NO driving!
- All ages are welcome (however, under age 12 should team up with an adult as a Partner Team Member = 1 member)
- There are 5 legs of the race
- Legs range from .8 miles to 1.8 for Legs 1-4 and up to 3 miles for Leg 5.
- Relay format -Team Member 1 does Leg #1, returns & tags Team Member 2 who does Leg # 2, etc. 
- Legs must be done in order, and the next leg cannot begin until the previous leg tagteams 
- For teams with less than 4 members, some will have to do multiple legs.
- You will be handed a map for each Leg you are assigned,  Each map shows Checkpoints with Point Values assigned.  
- You earn points for completing each checkpoint. (Believe me, these can be a variety of things to do!)
- You must complete AT LEAST TWO (2) CHECKPOINTS before returning and tag teaming your next team member to start their leg.  
- You can then return to YOUR leg and complete additional checkpoints if you didn't finish all of them.
- There will be additional methods of earning points while you are waiting for Team Members to finish their legs
- All team members must check in to Station 5 TOGETHER before Leg 5 can begin.
- There will be "obstacles/deterrents" throughout the race (hence, "Zombie Crawl") and a few other "surprises
- YOU WILL GET DIRTY (think Color Run concepts)  -- so don't wear your "good clothes"  an old white t-shirt is great!
- You will have 4 HOURS TO COMPLETE AS MANY CHECKPOINTS AS POSSIBLE and return to original Check-in Station 
- You will be penalized points per minute for every minute over 4 hours. 
- Team with highest point total is the WINNER 
- Awards (trophies/medals) will be presented to the Top 3 teams (with highest confirmed point totals) as well as some fun additional awards

    Team Donation for Basket Raffle
