Race Overview:
  •  Zombie Survivor is a 5 km race that takes place on July 25th, 2015 at the Cochrane Ag Society in Canada. Not only are you racing to put up your best time, but you have the extra challenge of not being infected by the zombie hordes as you run!

  • Register here for the Zombie Survivor in Cochrane, Canada on July 25th, 2015. You will need to create an account in order to register as a "runner" or "zombie." Once you have created your account you can easily add additional runners and zombies. 
  • Prior to the race you will receive 3 lives (flags) which are attached to a belt you wear – similar to flag football.
  • The goal of the race is to complete the track with at least 1 life still attached to your belt. 
  • The zombies on the course are not only out for your brains, but will be targeting your flags
  • If you lose all your flags, unfortunately you have been infected by zombies. However, just because you are infected doesn’t mean you are out of the race! If you have lost all of your lives be on the lookout for our extra life zone on the course, they may be able to bring you back from the dead before it’s too late.
  • The ultimate goal is to finish the race with at least one flag still attached. You will find that making a strategy and working as a team will be beneficial for making your way through the course survival. You have strength in numbers.
  • While most Zombies move and react slowly, be weary of quicker "enraged zombies on the course." These zombies move and react quicker than your regular zombies. Be ready to sprint as they may chase you for short distances!
The Race Course:
  • The course is approximately 5km long. It will involve some tricky uphill and downhill terrain, as well as 12 race obstacles.
  • There will be lots of zombies on the course. Don’t get too close to them, they like brains.
  • Expect to get wet, muddy and “bloody,” bringing a change of clothes for after the race is advised, there will be a bag check on site.
  • All obstacles are optional to complete, however the alternate route may be more difficult or slower to navigate.
Survival Tips:
  • Act as a team, some highly infested areas are easier to navigate as a pack. You'll have a higher survival rate if you can use meat shields (other runners) to your advantage.
  • Conserve some energy while running, having something left in the tank for a quick sprint or dodge can be the difference between survival and infection.

We hold various leadership and management roles within the Expo and we've been chomping at the bit to find our own event to have even more fun with throughout the year, so this was such an amazing opportunity for us we all grabbed it with both hands, dragged it down to the floor and feasted on it. So we are all well versed in event management and organization, so rest assured, Zombie Survivor is here and is here to stay.
