Thank you for your interest in the Inaugural Zombie Escape 5K and Fun Run. We are searching for those willing and able to become "infected" and be a part of the zombie apocalypse.

Zombies are categorized into 3 types of zombies:

  • Runner Zombie
  • Walker Zombie
  • Stationary Zombie


Runner zombies will be released onto the course about 5 min after the last escapees have left for the "Safe Zone". It will be your responsibility to catch those runners and capture their flags. (More details released, in our volunteer email)

Walker zombies will be released onto the course about a mile from the start line, and will be responsible for intersecting and capturing their flags as the escapees run toward you. Once back at the start, these zombies will be the last line of defense as runners reach the safe zone (finish line). More details released, in our volunteer email

Stationary Zombies will be positioned in small groups around the evacuation zone (the park), and are responsible for their area only as runners pass through their dedicated area. Some of these volunteers may be on the ground, tied to trees or roaming

ZOMBIE PAINT... all zombie volunteers will be asked to apply their own makeup base, and then upon arrival to Rancho Bernardo Park will be finished by our professional makeup artists

ZOMBIE CLOTHES... Zombie volunteers will have to supply their own clothes. we suggest old clothing that can be torn, or get dirty.
