RUN FOR YOUR LIFE Zombie Fun Run 2015 - Oct 23rd

Fri October 23, 2015 St. Johns, MI 48879 US Directions

Event: RUNNERS: 1.5 Mile Road/Trail Race

Welcome to the third annual St. Johns RUN FOR YOUR LIFE Zombie Fun Run! A few guidelines to make your experience as fun as possible:

Parking is free near the former City Pool site at the corner of Park and Morton. Overflow parking along Morton Street and in the High School Parking lot. City Park will be closed for the event.

RUNNERS: Race check-in will be near the St. Johns City Park Band Shell. Check-in will start at 5:30 PM race day. All pre-registered runners are guaranteed a belt with "life" flags. If registering on race day, you must bring a signed waiver form (printed from race website). All minors under the age of 18 must have a parent’s signature. Children under the age of 13 must run with a parent or guardian. Children 10 and under are free and do not need to register online, but you will need to sign a waiver for children when you arrive on race day. Race day registration is $15, cash or check.

Bring your signed race waiver if registering on race day ($15). If you register online you do not need a waiver.
Costumes are fine, but please don't dress like a zombie: it would be confusing! No hard or sharp objects and no weapons (real or fake) allowed. You may want a flashlight as sundown is at 6:50 PM, but shining lights directly into the zombie’s faces is NOT allowed.
Check the weather before race day, bring appropriate rain gear if needed.
Please, no pets.

The goal of the race is to make it through the 1.5 mile course with your life flags intact. The entire course is not crawling with zombies, there are “Horde Zones” that you will have to navigate, some more difficult than others.
All racers must keep their flags visible at all times. Hiding the flags or making them difficult to remove will result in disqualification. If all of your flags have been taken, keep running! This does not turn you into a zombie.
Direct and intentional physical contact with any runner or zombie is strictly prohibited. You are not to touch, hit, punch, tackle, or do anything harmful to the physical health of our zombies or other runners, no matter how frightened or frightening you may be. Those in violation of this rule will be automatically disqualified and potentially escorted off of the grounds, without refund.

This is a fun community event and please remember to keep it fun for everyone. The goal is not to scare young children, but please evaluate your own kids to determine if they can handle the race or not. If the answer is “or not”, the best place to be a spectator of the event will be along the park road that separates the Band Shell from the site of the former City Pool. This is the Zombie Spirit Zone, for friendly zombies only. If your kids want to run but are nervous, they can run without a belt and that will alert the zombies to be friendly to them.

We will race rain or shine… or darkness. In the event of a severe storm, we will postpone the race until conditions improve.

A parent or guardian must sign the waiver for anyone under 18, runner or zombie.
No weapons or mock weapons will be permitted on the premises.
No drugs, outside alcohol, or outside food/beverages are permitted on the property.
No pets are allowed into the event grounds.
Participants and spectators must abide by all instructions given from the race directors, race staff, volunteers, and medical personnel.
