Estimated Time until the Zombie Invasion Arrives



Zombies Invade Montana

 News reports from all over the country were raving about the infection quickly consuming the nation.  People were suffering from flu-like symptoms and quickly dying within a week.  It was suspected that it all began from a cruise ship passenger returning home from a cruise through South America.  He had gotten adventurous chasing down a wild monkey and was supposedly bitten but didn't bother to say anything to anyone before returning to the ship.  The boat returned to Texas without any radio communication and when the ship was disembarked hoards of decaying bloody bodies were crawling and jumping from the ship ravenously attacking the shipyard crew and security.  No living survivors...       

 The Unliving were contained and eventually killed. The Zombie threat was over – we thought. But, the Zombies were bitten by bees and the infection spread first to the bees then to humans as they were bitten and stung.

 Through the summer a giant black cloud of bees came northward from Texas – leaving a swath of new Zombie hoards throughout the widwest. The bees arrived in Montana in the fall: they began spearing through the air and swarming ravenously.  You could hear the flaps of their tiny wings as they swarmed together and grew to cloud the skies with their masses.  First attacking the birds and wild animals, and then our livestock and domesticated animals; then stinging people and biting them as they were walking the streets and working outside.  Eventually hiding in homes and stinging and biting people inside their own houses as people were trying to care for their sick animals and family members.  The virus turned the bees into killer swarms that quickly spread the disease throughout our haven.  No barricade or shotgun was going to slow down this invasion.

Now we're fighting for our lives as we escape from the zombie hoards.  Will YOU survive?


Zombie Run/Walk/Crawl

The Missouri Valley Marketing Zombie Run/Walk/Crawl is a 3K course through Townsend.  Each person will have a role:

  • Living Participant
  • Zombie

At the beginning of the Run each Living person will be given 4 flags. The Living People will be given a headstart over the zombies. When the zombies are set free they will chase the Living people attempting to catch them by grabbing a flag. When all 4 flags are gone the runner is out of the RUN -- UNLESS they purchase more flags from a Zombie Run referee ($1.00).

Zombies must be made up to look like zombies!

Along the course there will be Zombie Safe Zones where a Living runner can escape zombies -- or just catch a breath.

OH -- But Beware: hidden along the route will be zombies waiting to catch an unwary runner!

The Referees will be along the route to ensure that all participants are abiding by the Zombie Run Rules (see below)

The Zombie Run course will pass by all of the local cafe/bars and all of the local bars will be Zombie Safe Zones where Living runners and Zombies can all relax and enjoy the cafe/bar speciality Zombie drink (with or without alcohol).

Runners will have 2 hours to complete the Run (to allow time in the Zombie Safe Zones).

After the Run has been completed Participants in the run will have the opportunity to vote on the best Zombie drinks available in the Zombie Safe Zones!

There will be awards for the Best Zombie Makeup/Constumes (adults and children). In addition, there will be raffles and games during the after party at one of the Zombie Safe Zones (one of the cafe/bars).

There will be awards for:

  • Most Flags Captured by a Zombie
