This year, zombies have decided to invade another neighbourhood in Fort McMurray, Waterways.
The 5 kilometre run will start and end at the Fort McMurray Tarsands Lion Club across from Fire Hall 1 on Tolen Dr.
Each runner starts the race with a flag football belt with three flags on it. Runners will need to out maneuver hungry zombies they encounter along the route and avoid being “eaten” (having their flags stolen).
At the end of the race flags will be exchanged for tickets (1 flag = 1 ticket, 2 flags = 2 tickets, etc.) to be entered into a raffle prize draw. Extra flags/lives will be available for $20 a piece at each health station along the route, which will also include water and first aid supplies.
A celebratory BBQ for all participants and volunteers will be held after the race.
In support of United Way, we are encouraging all participants (runners and zombies) to raise pledges. For every $10 in pledges, participants will receive 1 ticket to be entered into a draw.
Additional set of lives will be given to runners for those who raise $150 in pledges. Early bird registration is available until August 31 for $25. Regular registration fee is $35.
