Human Runner - Complete the race with the fastest time while trying to avoid the zombies and dodge the zombie roamers. Human runners will wear a survival belt with 3 flags on it, with the goal of finishing the race with all the flags. Those that finish with at least 1 flag will finish as a Survivor and those that finish without any flags finish as an infected zombie.
Zombie Runner - Complete the race with the fastest time while chasing the human runners over the entire course to collect as many flags as possible before crossing the finish line.
Zombie Roamers - NO FEE FOR ROAMERS unless they want a t-shirt. Roamer shirt cost $10. These roamers are providing interference and also are trying to grab flags from the humans. Roamers will be limited to a specifically assigned area.
All runner participants will take home a finisher's medal based on finishing as a Survivor or Infected. Fun awards will also be given to participants with the best Human and best dog zombie costume, The highest fundraising team and more to be determined later. Check back for updates!

All proceeds raised benefit Braveheart Animal Rescue's mission to Rescue animals from local animal shelters, focusing on "Code Red" (at-risk and injured) animals in need of immediate attention and to Educate the public on the importance of Spay & Neuter programs and all the low-cost options available in our community. They rescue unwanted, abandoned, injured, or ill companion animals -- primarily from "high kill" shelters and owner surrenders. They place these animals in foster homes where they can receive proper veterinary care, rehabilitation, and rest in order to prepare them to go to their forever homes. Their intention is to work within our community and educate pet owners on the importance of spaying and neutering their companion animals in order to assist with the reduction of unwanted animals. They also focus on programs that educate both our community and potential adopters on the fact that animals are a lifelong commitment -- and to help them realistically prepare for that commitment.
