Runner and zombie registration for the 2014 Zombie Dash is now closed.

If you are a runner who just found out about the event and desperately want to get in, you can fill out this late, late runner registration form and bring it and cash or a check written to Michigan Adventure Racing LLC for $50 to early check-in at Gazelle Sports Grand Rapids on Friday, 1-7 pm. Same-day registrations not excepted. We have plenty of zombies (300) – sorry!

  • Runners: Pick your desired race time: Sunset (6:30-6:45 pm) , Twilight (6:45-7:00 pm), or Darkness (7:00-7:15 pm). Runners will be released in small groups every 15-30 seconds to keep things from bottlenecking too much. If someone registers in the wrong wave, no worries. They can move to your wave at the start. Their time is based on when they cross the start mat.
  • Kids 10 and under can run FREE with their registered/running parents (non-registered, non-timed, no shirt; sign waiver and pick up special bib at registration).
  • Zombies: Pick your desired “feed zone” so you all are spread out, and select no shirt or $15 shirt option. Zombies with kids under 14 should pick the “no feed” zones along the Riverwalk due to the potential for collisions involving young kids going after adult life strips. Email for exceptions.
  • Group discount. Gather a total of 8 of you and sign up together under the group “captain”‘s account (this person pays for the group) and we’ll credit your credit card for 10% off EACH runner entry. Captain will get 20% off. Please contact us after you register and we will apply the credit as a partial refund on your card.
  • Armed forces discount. Current and former members will receive a 10% off discount. We will also provide 10% off to fire/police officers and EMTs in case situations arise during the race when their expertise is needed. Contact us after you register and we will apply the discount.

Age limits, registration changes and refund policy listed at bottom of page.

Runners can be any age. All runners under 14 years old must run with a parent or guardian. We recommend that runners age 14-18 run in a group.

Zombies must be at least 14 years old to grab life strips from runners. Zombies younger than 14 should be with their parents in the “no feed” zones located at the beginning and end of the race (north zones). The goal is to minimize the risk of collisions between adults and younger/smaller kids. Exceptions allowed but please contact us.

Making changes to your registration is easy. Go to, log in to your account, click on My Tickets, View Orders, and Edit Details. Update the information. If you need help, please click on this Help link.

You may transfer your entry to another person until online registration closes. Just swap out their information using the process above. Get the cash from them.

Unlike most races, especially national “chain” races, we do allow partial refunds.  If you do not have someone to transfer your registration to, a partial refund is available requested through Michigan Adventure Racing (not EventBrite) based on the following schedule:

Funeral or active military duty = full refund
7 days or more = 25% refund (or 100% if you find someone to take your place/transfer)
6 days – day of event = no refund

(If you cannot race, you or a friend MUST pick up your shirt at check-in – before the start of the race or we reserve the right to use it to fill shortages. We cannot possibly know how many shirts to save for people who do not show up.

We reserve the right to alter/merge start times based on sign-ups, safety, local officials, etc.
