OCTOBER 5TH, 2013
Location TBA—Denver, CO
Whether you’re trying to survive the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse or part of the ever growing flesh eating, walking dead horde, the 2nd Annual Zombie Dash is for you.
This Urban Race through Denver will be a fun, riddle filled challenge that will blow your mind! That is if the Zombies haven’t’ already dined on your brains!
We are now in search of businesses that would like to be a check point for the Zombie Dash on October 5th, 2013. The competition will take place throughout Downtown Denver and will feature teams of 2 – 6 players facing challenges at each checkpoint. Racers are only allowed to walk/run or use public transportation during the race. (RTD and Light Rail, NO Cabs, Bikes, Pedi cabs, etc. allowed)
Zombie Dash will take place between the hours of 11am and 3pm with some racers finishing in less than 2 hours and others enjoying each piece of the competition while they fight to conquer the challenges at each checkpoint. Our Goal is to have each challenge/checkpoint be unique and fast paced. Each challenge will have a Zombie theme. Many teams will be outfitted in their best Zombie Gear, while others may be Zombie Bait and some will even be Zombie Hunters.
We anticipate having 500-700 people, participating in the Zombie Dash. Part of the proceeds from the race will benefit Flobots.org. We will wrap up the race at the Host Site with Awards, Prizes, Music, Food and Drink Specials.
Flobots.org works to create positive social change by harnessing the power of music and those who love it. We view music as a tool for therapy, community building, leadership development and action.
