Hawkeye Downs has been infested and is filled with flesh-eating zombies! This is not just any normal 5k run–but a creepy dash around the grounds and through eerie barns. A splendid event for many ages!
Expect to be challenged with obstacles as you race to the finish of the event. This includes:
RAIN OR SHINE!
Will you be fast enough to outrun the apocalypse? If so, sign up as a runner today!

Rules (Necessary for maximum fun for all participants)
-Runners will be given “health flags” which they will try to keep as they run. Zombies will attempt to capture these flags from the runners as
they run by.
-Participants must be 14 years or older on race day except for runners in the family wave.
-All participants must finish the race as they signed up. The undead must stay undead, and runners cannot become zombies.
-If a runner becomes infected (loses all of their flags) they do not become a zombie.
-Contact between runners and zombies is not allowed. Violators will be disqualified from the event and be asked to leave the campus.
-Cheating (skipping an obstacle, cutting the course, hiding/blocking your flags, etc) will result in disqualification from the event.
-Runners must wear their racing bib, and it must be showing/not covered at all times.
-Runners may not cover or block their health flags from the zombies.
-Runners may not trade or transfer their health flags with other runners.
-Runners must race during their scheduled wave time. It is recommended to be at the line/in your spot at least 10 mins prior to your wave time.
-Zombies are not allowed to take more than one health flag from a runner in the same wave. This means a person cannot be trapped or cornered with multiple flags taken.
-People who appear intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to participate and may be asked to leave the premises.
-No weapons, metal, or sharp objects are allowed on the event campus.
-No outside food or beverage may be brought on the event campus.
