WHEN SHOULD WE ARRIVE? Plan to arrive no later than 8am. (if you know someone that doesn't have their packet advise them to arrive to the FRONT of the Landing by 7:30am) WHERE DO I GO? If you have your packet then you can proceed directly to the inside courtyard of The Landing. Listen carefully for announcements. Zombies will be placed just prior to the 9am start time and should plan to stay on the course for all waves, unless it's necessary to leave the course to pick up a child at the finish corral. WHERE DO I PUT THIS BIB? WHAT ARE THESE STICKERS Pin kids/runner bibs to their BACK. For added peace of mind, write your phone number on your child's bib. Zombie bibs go on the front. You will bring your stickers with you. This is how you "bite" kids. We will give further instructions at the event prior to placing you on the course. SO WHAT IS THIS WRISTBAND? Each runner must wear a wristband that designates his/her wave. Parents must show a matching wristband to retrieve children from kids corral on Hogan St. Please try to be on Hogan st. waiting for your child to finish so you can get them from the corral quickly. Hogan st. is a fantastic place for photos and video, so it's the perfect place to park yourself if you are an observer. WHAT ARE THE WAVE TIMES? Listen carefully to all stage announcements once you arrive. The kids will be called when their wave is about to start. 9: 00 WHITE: 13-15 YRS 9:05 BLUE 11-12 YRS 9:10 RED 9-10 YRS 9:10 ORANGE 7-8 YRS 9:15 YELLOW 5-6 YRS CAN I SWITCH MY CHILD'S WAVE? Yes, you can do that at packet pick up. We prefer kids run in their age wave but know that some siblings and friends do not want to be seperated so just ask at packet pick up and they will provide the appropriate colored bracelet for your child. I'M A ZOMBIE AND DON'T HAVE ANYONE TO STAY WITH MY CHILD WHEN I AM ON THE COURSE, WHAT SHOULD I DO? Of course we prefer zombies stay on the course for all waves, but if you can't, simply wait for your child's wave to be called then proceed to Hogan St and enter the course backwards. (maps available at packet pick up or at registration tent) Stay toward the end of the course so you can retrieve your runner from the finish corral as soon as possible. Please do NOT remove any child from the course without going through the finish corral. WHERE DO I PARK? Please arrive no later than 7:30 if you must pick up a packet, or 8am if you already have it. It's a Jags game-day so meters on the streets will be bagged, There is limited paid parking adjacent to the Jacksonville Landing and plenty of additional $5 parking in the Jacksonville Center Garage located at 1 West Bay St. That garage will donate $1 per car to the Shannon Miller Foundation!

Who Gets to Run and Who Gets to be a Zombie
Join us for our third annual Zombie Chase. On this one mile course, kids ages 5-15 will run from start to finish while trying to avoid being "bitten" (stickered) by the zombies that roam the course. Parents and older siblings ages 16 and up, you are the zombies!
Can I run with my child?
Any parent can run with his/her child as long as that parent is registered as a zombie. No adult will be allowed on course without a race bib or volunteer bracelet. This is for your child's security. So, while we like for our zombies to stay on the course for all age waves, if your child wants you to stay by his/her side to be a "zombie escort" this is fine. You don't HAVE to dress like a zombie, but you will find that if you do, it helps the child to appreciate that all of the other zombies are probably someone elses mom or dad in make up too!
I'm going to be a zombie...who will do my makeup?
All zombies will provide their own costume and make up. As we get closer to the race day, look for emails with tips on how to best zombify yourself. We'll have tips on makeup, shuffling along slowly, moaning and groaning, and general zombie etiquette!
