Event Information
ABOUT THIS EVENT
Brambleton Community Association presents the Brambleton Zombie Run 5k!
Will you survive a run through our trail system while being chased by zombies who want to eat your brains! Or are you a hungry zombie who is in search of brains? Either way, this is the race for you!
This 5k race will lead you through Brambleton's certified 5k course along the trail system and through the underground tunnels. Zombies could be anywhere along this course just waiting to take your life.
HOW IT WORKS
RUNNERS - You will receive a flat belt with three flags attached. These flags represent your health. As you run along the course, zombies will try and take your flags. If you finish with at least one flag, you will be given a "survivor" medal but if you have no flags at the finish, you will be given an "infected" medal. All runners will continue to finish the race even if all their flags have been eaten.

ZOMBIES - If you are hungry for some brains, then transform yourself into a zombie! You will be placed along the course and will try and get as many flags as you can. Of course, our zombies are nice, and will not grab anything but flags. We will also have two styles of zombies: Chaser Zombie, which can chase people for up to 5 seconds to try and get the flag, and Creeping Zombies, which can have quick bursts of energy by lunging to reach a flag but will generally stay in one area. Most zombies will be Creeping Zombies.
WAVES / TEAMS
WAVES - Runners will be released in rolling waves of approximately 30 people at a time. Waves will not be assigned prior to the run. Runners will line up along Willowcreek at the beginning of the race and staff will begin pulling around 30 people at a time to line up to run. Waves will be released 3 minutes apart.

TEAMS - If you would like to run with a group/team/family, be sure to register under a team or create a team. Be sure to line up together when the race line up along Willowcreek begins. When you approach the staff member who is lining everyone up, please let them know how many in your group. If you are a ZOMBIE TEAM, we will try and put you together on the same area of the trail but just know you will likely be spread out a bit.
WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE
All participants will receive an event t-shirt, race bib, and medal stating if you are a survivor or infected. You must register by October 1st to be guaranteed an event t-shirt. You are also invited to the Lost Rhino Retreat after party!

I understand and acknowledge that by checking the box below or signing below, I am legally agreeing to all of the following statements in exchange for being permitted to participate in the Brambleton Zombie Run on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at the Brambleton Town Center and Brambleton Community Association properties (“Zombie Run”), which includes both the Zombie Run course (“Course”) and pre- and post-course activities (“Related Activities”): 1. I understand that participating in the Brambleton Zombie Run is a hazardous activity. I acknowledge that Zombie Run is a test of my physical and mental limits that carries with it inherent risks of physical injury that cannot be eliminated completely, including but not limited to an above-average risk of death and/or serious injury. 2. I expressly, knowingly and voluntarily assume all of the risks of participating in the Brambleton Zombie Run. I understand and acknowledge that these risks include, but are not limited to: falls; illness; infection; contact or collision with spectators, personnel, and other pedestrians; contact or collision with motor vehicles or machinery; contact or collision with other participants of varying skill levels; contact and the effects of contact with natural and man-made fixed objects; natural and man-made water, road and surface hazards; close proximity and/or contact with thick smoke and/or open flames; inadequate competition equipment and/or equipment failure; dangers arising from weather conditions, including but not limited to extreme heat, cold, humidity, ice, rain, or fog; imperfect course conditions; and inadequate safety measures. I understand and acknowledge that these risks may cause harms including, but not limited to: bodily injury, ranging from minor to severe; illness or infection, ranging from minor to severe; physical and/or mental effects of exposure to extreme conditions and circumstances, ranging from minor to severe; temporary or permanent disability; paralysis; death; and property damage or loss. I understand that the risks of participating in the Brambleton Zombie Run may be caused in whole or in part by: my own actions or inactions; the actions or inactions of other participants; the actions or inactions of spectators or other pedestrians; and/or the acts, inactions, or negligence of the Released Parties (as defined below). I agree that prior to participating in Brambleton Zombie Run I will inspect the Course, facilities, equipment and areas to be used, and if I believe or become aware that any are unsafe or pose unreasonable risks, I agree to immediately notify appropriate personnel. I accept full and sole responsibility for the condition and adequacy of my equipment. I expressly assume all risks and take full responsibility for any and all damages, liabilities, losses, or expenses that I incur as a result of participating in the Brambleton Zombie Run. 3.

I hereby represent that I am, and on the date of the Brambleton Zombie Run will be, in good health and in proper physical condition to safely participate in the Brambleton Zombie Run.

I assume full responsibility for any injury, loss or damage associated with my use or consumption of alcohol and/or drugs at any point during the Brambleton Zombie Run. I understand the dangers associated with the use or consumption of alcohol and/or drugs and I recognize that such use or consumption might impair my judgment and motor skills. I certify that I am not, and on the date of the Brambleton Zombie Run will not be, under the influence of alcohol or any drugs that would in any way impair my ability to safely participate in the Brambleton Zombie Run. I assume full responsibility for any injury or loss to myself or to others and for any damage to any personal or real property associated with my use or consumption of alcohol and/or drugs at any point during the Brambleton Zombie Run. I further understand that the risks and dangers described in the paragraph above include but are not limited to all risks and dangers associated with the consumption of alcohol after participation in the Course. I understand that the Course is a test of mental and physical fitness and that the risks and dangers of consuming alcohol after such a test may be magnified. I take full responsibility for any decision to consume alcohol after completing the Course and I understand that it is my responsibility to know my own limits. I also understand that the responsibility for injury, loss or damage that I assumed in the paragraph above includes but is not limited to full responsibility for any injury or loss to myself or to others and for any damage to any personal or real property associated with any such decision to consume alcohol. I hereby indemnify and agree to hold harmless the Released Parties (as defined below) from any injury, loss, or damage described in this section. 5.

Except as otherwise prohibited by law, I agree not to challenge these rules, directions, instructions, or decisions on any basis at any time and I acknowledge that they are reasonable and necessary to reduce risk; protect the safety of participants, spectators, and personnel; and/or promote fairness and the spirit of the Brambleton Zombie Run.
