The Zombie Run returns this year and will take place on Saturday 6th October and Sunday 7th October 2018
Past runners will see a big improvement in this years course. First, off it will be 6K, instead of 5K so more treacherous terrain will be covered in your mission to evade our insatiable zombies. On top of that, we have added in bigger and better obstacles, including our exhilarating Giant Water Slide. For those who havent been before, this will be a good year to start. We have few other spooky surprises to make it a little more daunting.
On Sunday we have the kids Zombie Run with a 2km and 5km zombie chasing course.
Each runner starts with THREE lives (represented by flags worn about the waist) but, in addition to the running, the overcoming of obstacles and the manoeuvering through mud, runners also face ZOMBIES who will give chase in an attempt to steal one of their three lives.
The runners objective is to make it to the finish line with as many lives as possible intact. The Zombies objective, however, is to steal your lives, so when you hear gunshot be prepared to run, for you only have three lives and the monstrous, prowling zombies are a determined bunch!
