Zombie Run - Sunday 8th October 2017


Run for your lives at The Jungle NI!

Ireland’s original Zombie Run at The Jungle, challenges participants to complete a daring 6K obstacle trail run while being chased by blood-thirsty, running Zombies.

The Zombie Run returns this year and will take place on Sunday 8th October 2017 at 11am.

Past runners will see a big improvement in this year’s 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 haven’t been before, this will be a good year to start. We have few other spooky surprises to make it a little more daunting.

It’s an obstacle run with a fiendish Halloween twist – think Rampage meets The Walking Dead!

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 attempt to steal one of their three lives.

The runner’s objective is to make it to the finish line with as many lives as possible intact.

The Zombie’s objective, however, is to steal your lives, so when you hear gun shot be prepared to run, for you only have three lives and the monstrous, prowling zombies are a determined bunch!

Is it safe?

With all obstacle style mud runs similar to this and some of our more adventurous activities, there are risks involved and you must accept there is a risk of injury. We take safety very seriously here at The Jungle and have tried to manage and minimise all risks and our staff have been trained appropriately, however accidents can still happen.

Will we have access to showers and changing facilities after?

While we have ample private changing facilities, we have limited hot shower facilities. We have 4 male and 4 female showers. They require a 50p piece to operate.

Is there parking onsite?

The Jungle’s car park is located directly opposite TheJungle site in a gravelled field. It is clearly signposted and a marshal will be available to provide assistance. Upon parking follow the marked path, over the bridge, and use the subway to safely cross the road onto The Jungle site.

As a runner can I skip an obstacle?

Yes, you can skip an obstacle BUT it will cost you a life (flag). If you leave the cordoned area you will also lose a life (flag).

What time does the Zombie Run happen?

The first wave starts at 11am and every 10 minutes another wave will commence. Please check your race time and be there on time or you will miss your slot.

What type of obstacles will there be?

There will be a range of obstacles that you will have to climb over, wade through, climb under such as cargo nets, balance beams, wacky walls, Giant Water Slide, Barbed Crawl etc.

If participating as a runner, how do I win?

If you make it back to the finish line with at least one life (flag) left you will be marked as alive and entered into a prize draw. Please note: this is not a time-based race but an adventure fun run; participants times will not be recorded. There will be a number of spot prizes on the day.

What if the weather is bad?

This event will continue even if the weather is bad. You will be getting wet, muddy and chased by zombies, so a bit of rain will be the least of your worries!

How should I train for this event?

Run. Learn about Zombies. Run fast. Then run faster. Recommended viewing includes: The Walking Dead, 28 days later, Zombie Apocalypse, Shaun of the Dead.

When does Race Registration Close?

Online Registration will close on SATURDAY 7TH OCTOBER at 5PM.

What should I bring on race day?

Your email confirmation with your registration number, a towel and a spare change of clothes.

What if I get hurt?

We will have official medical teams onsite on the day; Jungle staff/Marshalls are also First Aid trained and can provide assistance.
