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.
10.9.13 REDRUN START TIMES AND GENERAL INFO
TEAM START TIMES- CLICK HERE
INDIVIDUAL START TIMES- CLICK HERE
START TIME INFORMATION- Due to the overwhelming demand of specific start times, we did our best to accommodate each runner's requested start time starting with the Team entries. Several teams had multiple start times listed, however we made sure we kept teams together. If your individual start time, for some reason, doesn't match your team's, then go by your team's listed start time instead of your individual start time. We will release approximately 100 runners every 10 minutes starting at 2pm. Some runners may have a team, but did not register under their team name. Again, please defer to your team start time so you can run with your team. Don't worry, this is a FUN run and it will be! We won't rake you over the coals on start times.
Check in at least 1hr before your start time.
Check in will be from 9am - 2pm in the Bucket of Blood Parking Lot, which is located across the street from the Bucket of Blood next door to Grandma's Fudge. T-shirts sizes are first come first serve! We suggest you get there as early as possible so you can relax, avoid lines and enjoy Virginia City. You will get your t-shirt before the run. Remember, only participants that registered before October 4th are eligible for the t-shirt. But don't worry, you'll love our Morgue where we'll be selling swag. We will have sweatshirts, hats, long-sleeves and several other t-shirt designs to choose from.... all performance wear.
PARKING- Again, first come first serve. Do your best to find a legal parking spot! If you get there early, you will not have any problems. If you don't, well, good luck!
YOU WILL GET WET! Be prepared! Between our living insane, muddied to hell and blood bath, you won't stay dry. Bring a towel, perhaps a change of clothes, so you can enjoy the Zombie Manifestival and the Spazmatics.
OBSTACLES- You can avoid them, but you won't earn a flag. And we're not timing, so live it up and take a few chances while you still can.
REVIVE STATIONS- Very important! There will be no cash transactions at the Revive Stations. We will be providing Powerade and water at each station. You'll need "beer tokens" to grab yourself a cold Coors Light or Miller Lite at these Revive Stations. You can purchase those in the Morgue at check-in. Buy up... they will be good at the Manifestival if you don't use them on your run.
THE RUN- This run is NOT easy! But that's okay! Take your time. Enjoy. It is the most authentic Zombie Run on the Planet. Take a look around. You will see things that you just don't see everyday. Save your energy and survive. Read up on all the areas you will be visiting on your 6 mile run by clicking here.
ZOMBIES AND LIVING INSANE- We received your preferred dead zone locations. You will still have the opportunity to change your mind on which location you will inhabit. Since the launch of Redrun, the course has grown to encompass even more of what makes Virginia City so authentic. The best zones for Zombies include the Silver Terrace Cemetery, China Town, The Old Saint Mary's Psych Ward, The V&T Graveyard and Downtown Virginia City right on C street. The best areas to hide for the Living Insane include Silver Terrace Cemetery, China Town, The V&T Graveyard (best) and The Chollar Mine / Savage Mine. Each dead zone will have a leader which will review the rules, show you the lay of the land and make you have as much fun as possible.
MAKE UP- THIS LOCATION HAS CHANGED! Make up for Zombies and Living Insane will take place inside the 4th Ward School 537 S C St. Make-up session for volunteers and staff is open to general public from 9 - 11 am.

7.24.13 The Second Obstacle Released
The Blood Bath
Regular camouflage just won't do the trick. Take a dip in our blood bath to blend in... maybe, just maybe the Zombies won't smell the live flesh underneath. Beware of the thick chunky nature that comes along with drenching yourself in decay. After you fight to escape blood bath, only one thing will cross your mind, "what in the hell was that?"
7.1.13 Official Zombie Options and Pictures for Redrun
Make sure you follow us on our Facebook site! Everyday, for the next 30 days, we will post pictures & stories behind the landmarks on the Redrun Course. There just isn't another run like this on the planet. The history, the hauntings, authenticity. You have to see these photos. This is not a theme park. This is real. You better run like hell.
4.12.13 Redrun will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Northern Nevada
Do you know anyone with Cystic Fibrosis? We do and we want to do as much as possible to help find a cure. Redrun will donate a portion of the proceeds of the event to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation of Northern Nevada. Additionally we will donate an extra $2 per flag that crosses the finish line and $5 per person that goes through a Zombie Mutation at the end of the race! We will have a special host who has been affected by Cystic Fibrosis, 9 year hold Rylee Husted. You will be running for her and children just like her in an effort to find a cure!
Cystic fibrosis is a disease passed down through families that causes a build up fluid in the lungs, digestive tract, and other areas of the body. It is one of the most common chronic lung diseases in children and young adults. It is a life-threatening disorder.
4.5.13 Spazmatics Will Headline the Zombie Manifestival
From the creators of the Fabulous Boogie Knights comes the Spazmatics. All the awesome sounds, styles, and way cool dance steps from the 1980's decade we'd love to forget. Complete with skinny ties, Brill Creamed hair, and horn-rimmed glasses, The Spazmatics recapture all the best of the worst. Outstanding musicianship combined with creative flair and style makes for an evening of pure energy and entertainment. So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999; only it's not! The Spazmatics.
For more information click on the Zombie Manifestival.
4.5.13 Coors Light is the Official Beer of Redrun
Guess who's giving all the runners their first beer for free? That's right Coors Light. They will also be the official beer during the run and the Zombie Manifestival, which will include the Redrum Bar Crawl and the Official Coors Light Graveyard located at the after party / concert in the dead of town. Click on The Zombie Manifestival for more information.
4.5.13 Registration is Now Open
Registration for Redrun has now begun. Runners survive, the dead capture, and the living insane attack with blood bombs. Register for one now. Hurry, the price will go up June 1st.
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 5.5 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 uncaptured 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.
