On the morning of the Zombie Crawl, join your fellow zombies on the ORGAN Trail. Run, walk, or crawl around downtown Denver in this urban adventure that is part Amazing Race, part Fear Factor, and part Haunted House. Zombie hordes will solve clues in order to identify locations in downtown Denver where they will complete checkpoints. Fun for all and the zombies with the fastest legs and the quickest BRAINS! will take home the cash.

Clothing may become dirty or even permanently stained/damaged during the event. We are not responsible for any damage to personal belongings during the race. Race bibs must be clearly displayed at all times.

Identification – At the start line, you will be required to show a photo ID in order to obtain your race packet (bib, pins, shirt, etc.). No ID and you do not participate.
Maps – you think you know downtown Denver well. Do you know it well enough?
Bus routes/passes – even within the confines of downtown, jumping on the perfect bus at the right time just might help you be the winning team
Paper/pen – might help for tracking your progress or route
Additional technology – GPS devices, laptops/tablets or other internet devices – get creative here.
Video recorder – your team’s video footage might make the ORGAN Trail highlights or be featured in next year’s promotion
Watch – there is only so much time before the zombies take over
Water, snacks, etc. – stay hydrated on the ORGAN Trail
Sunscreen – some zombies have sensitive skin
