There are mysterious sounds and sightings being reported around Sheffield. Its up to you and only you to save yourself from the figures lurking in the shadows. We predict that the zombies will attack Sheffield on Saturday 27th October 2018, so its up to you to gather your troops and take on the zombies. The undead will be lurking in the shadows of the trees for an estimated 5km. Are you ready to run for your life? Each runner will be equipped with a utility life belt which contains three life tags. The zombies throughout the course will be aiming to steal your life tags and youll have to be nimble and quick to make it past the infected hordes.

You will still be infected, but our decontamination team will do their best to reverse the effects at the finish line. We promise: 1. Zombies will only ever take one life tag at a time 2. There will be no intentional physical contact between Zombies and Runners 3. Zombies will never intentionally obstruct you The decontamination team will meet you at the finish with your medal and with a FREE glass of celebratory decontamination fizz. There will also be plenty of cake to replace some of the energy you've burned, and your own Survival Certificate. Run on your own, as a pair or in a team. Totally traffic-free, fast and flat route. No time limits, no age restrictions, no pressure - just LOADS of fun. Come and join us!
