START TIMES AND ALL THE GORY DETAILS WILL BE RELEASED TODAY
TWO MORE DEAD ZONES ANNOUNCED
Home of the largest industrial accident in Nevada's history and previously a medical safe house for infected humans, the Yellow Jacket Mine has turned into the breeding ground for newly risen zombies. Avoid staying in this place too long or you too will join the ranks of the undead.
THE HOLDING TANK (both 3.33 and 6.66 mile course)
Once a military facility, this holding area for captured zombies has become a trap the Living Insane has set to capture humans for mass feeding. Stay light on your feet while passing through Gold Stamp Mill to avoid being trapped.
FIRST TWO DEAD ZONES ANNOUNCED
The time is drawing near for the chaos that is Redrun. Military, government and civilization are all a thing of the past and the only way to survive is to keep the dead fed. Herd, capture and prep the weak is the tactic used by the Living Insane, sacrificing ANYONE to the flesh hungry Zombies of Virginia City. Don't let that be you!
On the 6.66 mile course...
THE BLOOD BATH:
It's a trap! Located in the Savage Mine Pit, the Blood Bath will appear to be a safe passage out of Virginia City, but quickly you'll find yourself in a war-torn human prep zone inhabited by the Living Insane. Get ready to run faster than you ever have or risk satisfying their insatiable appetites for the living dead.
On the 3.33 & 6.66 mile courses...
THE HOT SPOT: The living insane gather the humans and release them to starved zombies of VC. Located on C-Street, this will be the most populated and overrun zombie zone - the center of downtown VC.

Episode 4 - Final Episode Before We Air Episode 5 at Redrun
With his only partner gone to the dead side, what will Fielding do now…
Cornered in one of the most storied areas of Virginia City, will Fielding escape Chinatown and the hordes of zombies descending on him? To be continued on 10/11/14 as part of the most exclusive, fierce and startling run you will ever experience. Keep your eyes peeled, you never know what or who will be lurking around the corner.
Old Chinatown: Virginia City's Chinatown numbered nearly 2,000 at its height in the early 1870s and was one of the century's largest Asian communities in the country. The residents of Chinatown came to Nevada during the early mining days and did much of the hard work that helped establish the state. They toiled in the dust of the Comstock and some say they still can hear the clank of the shovels and picks echoing out of China Town.
THE OFFICIAL MAP IS HERE
How’s your 5-minute mile? You’ll need it for this 6-mile course at an elevation of 6,150 feet. Runners battle six steep grades through mud and flee through century-old train tunnels, the country’s only working stamp mill, haunted buildings, a train graveyard, and more. Oh, and don’t forget those terrifying dead zones and either be Redrun constructed obstacles or natural unusual challenges along the course that only Virginia City can throw at ya… all while being chased by zombies.

DEAD ZONE 5 RELEASED
Virginia City erupted as a boomtown with the 1859 unearthing of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States. Virginia City looked much different in its heyday; most of the structures have no evidence of existence due in large part to the Great Fire of 1875 which caused an estimated $12 million in damages. Redrun II guides you right into the dead of the region most affected by the devastating fire. Although much of the burn zone has returned to its earthly beginnings, you will feel that something we call "living history" as you make your way through the landmark
DEAD ZONE 4 RELEASED
SECOND DEAD ZONE & EPISODE 3 RELEASED
SECOND DEAD ZONE ANNOUNCED!
We know you have been eagerly waiting to hear more details about the race course. Wait no longer! Announcing Dead Zone 2 - You will run through the only operating gold mill in the world, better watch yourself.
The Comstock Gold Mill, the operating 1860s Joshua Hendy two stamp machine that processed much of the ore from the Comstock Lode, is the second dead zone on the Redrun course. This was a dangerous place to work, just like most of the mines and other industries of the time. The stamps alone weigh 1000 lbs. each which would crush and pulverize the ore into a powder. It is thought that the men who were unlucky enough to get caught in the machinery still venture to the mill and clock in for their shift. The dead of the Gold Mill have plenty of places to hide as they wait for you to take the wrong step or pause for just a second too long.
IT'S HERE! Episode 2 is ready for you but are you ready for it? Pay close attention to the building Fielding tries to hide in, it's the Yellow Jacket Mine the location of the largest industrial accident in Nevada. The Redrun II course leads you through the same location on October 11, try not to get cornered.
Fielding - our cynical ghost hunter - is running for his life from the dead of Virginia City. Trying to escape to a safe location he enters the Yellow Jacket Mine, the site of Nevada's worst industrial disaster and it is soon to become part of Nevada's zombie apocalypse. The dead of Virginia City won't be dead for long. Will Fielding survive to the end? Follow the episodes to find out how these videos will lead into the most unique start to any run.

WELCOME TO REDRUN2 - THIS SEQUEL WILL DELIVER
Great sequels embrace the foundation of the original, and from there . . . everything gets bigger, better and in this case, a lot bloodier! Based in one of the most haunted and storied “living” ghost towns in the country, you will come across some of the most famously chilling landmarks ever documented. If you think you’d seen it all in the original, think again.
NEW AT REDRUN 2:
1. A revised 6 mile course with a variety of new hair-raising dead zones. The dead zones will be released periodically leading up to Redrun 2.
2. Six dramatically enhanced obstacles. Stay hidden - Stay Alive. You will be tested. These obstacles will be released periodically leading up to Redrun 2. We could not be more excited!
3. A hell of a lot more blood. The living insane will find a wide range of ways to cover your living corpse in deep dark red blood. Will it be real? You'll never know for sure, nor will you have any idea whose it might be. Hell, it might be yours. Either way, just know Redrun’s signature gooey, dark red liquid has been perfected.
4. More revive flags. A lot more!
5. Everyone who finishes will receive a uniquely designed Redrun medal as you cross the finish line. Those who survive will be forever immortalized into the “Redrun Sanctuary”. The Sanctuary will be posted on Redrun.com after the event, and engraved on a Redrun Headstone, which will forever remain in Virginia City.
6. Upgraded revive stations with more of everything, including music, space, water, beer, etc.
7. The Zombie Procession. Before the first horde is released, this haunted town will be overrun by a procession of the living dead down the middle of Main Street as you are unleashed into Zombigeddon!
8. New this year: more detailed zombie and living insane rules and procedures. Not all zombies are the same. Some are more advanced than others. The newly transformed zombies are more agile and quick on their feet. Since this is a running event, they will chase you. Be warned and be quick on your feet. Bring the support of your pack and you just might survive as you'll have fewer chasing zombies to contend with in these select zones. However, the longer the dead have been walking, the slower and more decayed these hordes become. Some Dead Zones you'll sprint past just a few zombies, while others you'll have a mob of zombies to avoid. Good luck.
9. Redrun will host a pre-registration and packet pickup in Reno, NV (Date and details TBD). Same-day registration and packet pickup will be enhanced, giving you more time to enjoy the ambiance, history, and allure that is Virginia City.
10. A more advanced and easier team registration system that will allow you to track your team sign ups and post to social media.
11. Join the THE RESISTANCE! This is your chance! Get the perks of being a part of Redrun 2 without having to run. Positions include: The Militia (Course Spotters), Registration, Obstacle spotters and Revive Station personnel. Resistance will receive all of the benefits of the Zombie and Living Insane participants.

10.13.13 THANK YOU!
Thank you to everyone who participated in the very first Redrun! What an incredible turn out. First year it was much bigger than anticipated with registrations nearly doubling in the last week. It was crazy and it was a blast. We have already begun our planning. We can't wait for next year and we will be ready! Redrun 2.. you just wait. Pictures and the morgue store will be up tomorrow.
4.5.13 Welcome to Redrun
You will not experience anything like this run. You will run right through the most frightening and historic locations in one of the most haunted towns in the world. If you are a runner.. you only need to survive the 6 mile obstacle run. Sounds simple? Well it won't be. Redrun is armageddon. On October 12, the Dead will rise and an all out war will erupt. You must make it through Virginia City un-captured and unscathed. The dead will want to catch you, but the living insane will want to destroy you. It's a shame that the insane can't tell the difference between the living or the dead, so their goal is the eradicate everything.
You can register for this event three different ways 1) as a runner 2) as zombie / creature or 3) as the living insane.
