ARE YOU A SURVIVOR OR A ZOMBIE?

We ask EVERYONE to dress up as a zombie, but the choice is up to you… Those who transform into a zombie will be entered into a “best dressed” contest where the prizes are emergency preparedness backpacks stuffed with all sorts of great loot! REMEMBER,this is a kid friendly event, zombies with excess gore or displaying violent tendencies will be asked to leave.

 

REGISTRATION

Registration is limited to 500 participants, and will open early August. All registration fees are non-refundable. Adult registration fees are $25.00 and children are FREE! All child runners MUST be accompanied by at least one registered adult runner. (One adult can accompany several children). REGISTER HERE: http://tinyurl.com/zombie race2015

 

HOW THE RACE WORKS

The course both begins and ends at the Pebble Beach Corporation Yard located at: 4005 Sunridge Road, Pebble Beach, CA 93953. Zombies and Survivors need to be at the course starting line one half an hour before their chosen stampede wave. Wave #1 takes off at  9:00 am, this wave is for runners registered in the Zombie Crawl. Wave #2 takes off at  9:10 am, this wave is for runners/walkers registered in the Survivor Stroll. The course will be clearly marked with mile markers and direction signs. In addition, there will be volunteers and medical personnel patrolling the Fire Defense Roads who can offer guidance if you find yourself separated from the Zombie herd.

 

EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS FAIR

“Why a Zombie Run?” you might ask. In this day and age, public safety officials find it ever harder to compete for children’s attention and time. By offering a Zombie Race, we hope to not only get kids interested in emergency planning, but also get them outdoors and moving! This fun event will encourage families to participate together in all aspects of a healthy lifestyle, including personal preparedness. In addition to the race, many public officials and volunteer groups have come together to provide fun and educational displays for you and your family.

SPECTATORS

Spectators are allowed, but parking is limited so “Looky Lou’s” must carpool with zombies and/or survivors entered in the race.

WAVE STARTS  AND TIMING

There will be two waves, separated by thirty minutes. The first wave will begin at 9:00 am, the second wave at 9:10 am. The first wave is for our “hard core” zombie/survivor runners who are registered in the 5K Zombie Crawl. The second wave is for our “family” zombie/survivor runners/walkers who are registered in the 2K Survivor Stroll. But whichever wave you decide to join, don’t be late, because there will only be two waves.
