THE COURSE: Green Country has been infected and The Castle of Muskogee is overrun! Feed your adrenaline urge by facing off against the zombie horde, and then fleeing through the woods and Village on The Castle grounds as they pursue you and your tasty, tasty brains. Be ready to encounter obstacles and challenges! Serious runners will appreciate the rugged roads and trails on 60 acres of Castle land, and those of you out for a jaunt will marvel at the unique features of the site that you normally don’t get to experience! Mud, treacherous ravines, a hungry dragon, perilous woods filled with brain-chomping menace…FUN!!
Come dressed to escape…come prepared….train hard! Make it through the course with at least one life flag still attached and win the coveted “Survivor” medal. If you fail, and you lose your flags to hungry zombies, you are marked “Infected” (equally coveted in some circles)!
The course is about 3 miles long/5K and winds from The Castle out into the field, through the woods, and back into the Village. Along the way, you’ll be faced with hidden perils, challenging obstacles, and hungry zombies.
Outmaneuver the horde, keep your life flags attached, and make it to the safe zone where you’ll be lauded for your apocalypse-survival skills. You might be muddy, you might be sore, but you’ll have all your brains still in your cranium.
If you lose your flags to the ravenous undead, you’ll be designated infected, but we love you anyway. Join the “Paint the Town Dead” party and celebrate with your still-living friends!
RULES and SAFETY: We want you to have fun on the run! We’ve also been told that our zombies can’t *actually* eat your brains. So there are some rules.
FAQ: Stuff you need to know about the run, what to bring, and the party.
BLOOD DRIVE: The American Red Cross is sending the Bloodmobile to the Zombie Run, because there is a desperate need for donations! We are glad to support the Red Cross in their efforts to prepare for real (and imagined) disaster. Please go to www.redcrossblood.org and use the sponsor code: castlemuskogee to schedule an appointment during the afternoon (1-5pm). This is a perfect activity for those folks not participating in the run, and anyone else willing to help! Runners are not eligible to donate until *after* you’ve run, and eaten, please. Thank you!
