The 5k Zombie Run Tampa Nov 19th 2016
The choice is yours:
-Be a Runner (human) and run from the Zombies.
-Be a Zombie and pull the runner’s flags as they run through your “Zombie Zone.”
Runners wear 3 flags on a belt. Protect these flags, they’re your “life.” Zombies are staged throughout the course ready to chase you and steal your flags. Try to survive, if you can… Lose your flags, and you can still finish the course as a runner. Look for Safe Zones at mile markers 1 and 2 with water, and pick up an extra life flag! Prepare for walkers, runners, crawlers… and some surprises.
Choose to become a member of the Zombie Horde instead, and polish your human hunting skills while adorned in true flesh-eating fashion, compliments of the event’s expert make-up team, followed by a visit to our Blood Splatter zone (both incl w/reg). Makeup is free of charge, though tips are appreciated!

NO REFUND POLICY
We cannot issue refunds. The cost and logistics of setting up and planning the event make refunds impossible. The run will take place rain or shine, however please understand we are at the mercy of mother nature and county officials, so if conditions deteriorate to the point of becoming an unsafe environment for our participants, we will react accordingly. Safety will always take precedence.
In the event a race is postponed or rescheduled, your registration will be honored at a future event. A postponement/reschedule would only happen due to an event outside of our control (i.e., dangerous weather, acts of God…).
If you find that you are unable to use your registration, we are happy to transfer it to another person, to a future event, or donate your fee to our charitable partner, oneblood (formerly Florida Blood Services). You must email us PRIOR to the event at [email protected] for transfers.
We have several volunteer opportunities.
Clubs, school groups, and organizations can volunteer during the event. Have a group that would like to volunteer? Please email us at [email protected] for availability.
Individuals can volunteer for pre-event setup help. Please begin your registration to see available shifts, descriptions of duties and to self register. Pre-event volunteers will earn a free entry to the run.
In addition, we are looking for makeup artists, photographers, a videographer/editor and an EMT. Please email us for more information at [email protected]
