About Us

The Arkansas Zombie Challenge™ is a 5K obstacle race for participants, ages 14 and up. Runners will each receive three (3) “life flags” that Velcro to a belt worn around the waist, similar to flag football. The object of the race is to complete the 5K course, maneuvering through a dozen challenging obstacles and several “infected zones” where Zombies attempt to snatch a “life flag” off the Runner’s belt. The Runner who completes the race in the shortest amount of time with at least one “life flag” still in place will finish in top standings and gain awards accordingly. If any or all “life flags” have been snatched off the Runner’s belt, he/she is still expected to finish the course, but is considered “infected,” which may affect their overall standing in the race. Runners cannot act aggressively toward Zombies or other Runners (e.g., pushing, punching, kicking, tripping, etc.), but should use other evasive techniques, such as swerving, speeding up, dodging, etc., to avoid Zombie contact. (See Race Waiver)
Zombies will be designated to specific “infected zones” that they cannot leave. A Zombie can only snatch one “life flag” per Runner, cannot attempt to take “life flags” while Runners are engaging obstacles, can only move in a forward direction (cannot turn around or back up), and cannot act aggressively toward Runners or other Zombies (e.g., pushing, punching, kicking, tripping, etc.). Once a Zombie reaches the limit of their “infected area,” only then can they turn around and move forward in the opposite direction, pursuing Runners as they approach them. (See Race Waiver download at left)
Trophies & awards will be given for Runners with top finishes, to Zombies for most creative costume/makeup character, and Runners will be able to vote for the most challenging, thematic obstacle with the award going to that Obstacle Sponsor. We need lots of volunteers to help us with many tasks related to this event. If you will help, see the Volunteer Waiver download at left and contact us.
