The Run of the Living Dead Zombie Horde is a special community of zombies who are participating in our Run of the Living Dead race as a zombie. We believe that a lone zombie isn’t much of a threat so it is important that all members of the Zombie Horde work together to capture those runners' tasty flags. Teamwork and camaraderie are just as important for the undead as they are for humans so come prepared to make new friends and have one of the most insane days of your living dead experience! REGISTER HERE to be a zombie!

What is required of a zombie?

Zombies should be prepared. Do research on authentic zombie moves and watch a lot of zombie tutorials so you know how to make yourself truly horrifying. Goodwill is a great place to assemble a kick ass costume that you wont feel protective of. Zombies are decomposing, and their clothes are often dirty and torn.  Being dead takes a toll on an outfit (and a body). Please get in character by race time. Pre-registered zombies who attend Packet Pickup can expect some makeup, skin attachments, and blood from one of our sponsors. Our gift to you.  

Zombie Perks

Please note: You will only receive the perks listed below upon fulfillment of your zombie duties. Those who do not show up, sign in, complete their shift, follow the rules and sign out will forfeit their right to the perks. Prepare to kiss humanity goodbye, at least for a few hours.

  • The winning zombie (the zombie with the most flags) will receive Top Zombie honors.
  • Free admittance into the Afterlife Party featuring the awesome Blindside Drop. Food vendors and adult beverages will be on hand as well.
  • Official Race Shirts are available at cost. You will be asked if you wish to purchase a shirt during registration.

Zombie Code of Conduct

When you register to be a zombie, you will be required to sign a Code of Conduct outlining the rules and responsibilities of being a good zombie.
