Our annual Zombie Run kicks off on Sunday 10th October.
So you think can outrun our life stealing Zombies and complete our daunting obstacle course with all your lives in tact.
Fortune favours the brave!
Before the event kicks off, we wanted to reach out to our runners with some important information.
This year we have adults, teens and kids all on the same day.
Adults – 10AM onwards – time slot on booking confirmation email.
Kids (6-10 yrs) – 1PM
Teens (11-17 yrs) – 2PM
YOU MUST BE HERE 30-45 MINUTES BEFORE YOUR ALLOCATED RACE TIME TO REGISTER.
Please park in the car park across the road and make your way through the subway tunnel into the Jungle farmyard. DO NOT CROSS THE ROAD.
Please arrive at The Jungle at least 30 minutes before your allocated race time (found on your confirmation email). You should head to the Registration Area on arrival and chat to our Registration Team. They will give you your waistband, complete with 3 ribbons, which represent your ‘lives’. It will be your goal to make it around the course and through the Zombie Infected Zones with all 3 lives in tact.
Our Registration Team will sign you in and ask you to have a read over the Risk Acknowledgement board one final time and give a thumbs up to our cameras to acknowledge you accept the risks involved and are happy to take part.
You can then leave your bag in our Bag Drop Area if you wish. There will be a small fee of £2 per bag, should you wish to use this service. We will store your bag securely and you can pick it up after your run.
You should make your way to the warm up area approximately 10 minutes before your run time for a quick warm up with our personal trainer/hype man! They’ll get you pumped and your muscles primed for action. Then it’s time to run for your lives!
Please remember if you do not wish to complete any of the obstacles, you can simply bypass them. Only do the obstacles if you are confident in your ability to complete them. We have a team of marshals around the course and also an emergency services crew on site, who will be on hand throughout the day.
We are sorry to say that due to several unforeseen operation delays from FedEx, our international carrier who deliver our custom made medals, we have not received our medals in time for the event. We are extremely disappointed that this usually reliable service has let us down on this occasion. Therefore, as a result, we unfortunately will not be able to hand out medals after your run.
However, once they arrive at The Jungle, we will get them out to everyone, either by post, or delivered.
We sincerely apologise for this inconvenience, unfortunately it was out of our hands and various external factors contributed to the delay. You will still receive your Zombie Run Snood/Headband and a hot lunch as planned.
Trail running or running shoes
Trail Running shoes are ideal for this type of event, where you’ll face different landscapes, as well as water and heaps of fresh mud. They’re built with stability and comfort in mind when dealing with hills, rivers, ravines and other tricky terrains. They will let your feet breathe and stay cool and will usually be quicker to dry and let out water more efficiently than normal shoes or trainers. They will also have superior traction and grip than most other trainers and will cushion the uneven ground better than other footwear.
However, if you don’t have a pair and don’t want to neglect your beloved and trusty running trainers, then dust off the old favourites and bust them out on the course. Running shoes will also keep your feet well ventilated, allow water to drain out quickly and can usually handle most terrains.
We’re not gonna lie… your trainers will take a battering. We wouldn’t recommend bringing any footwear that you are attached too. They will get covered in mud and will not finish the course in the same condition they started.
Finally, we recommend tying the laces firmly. They will have to resist the pulling force of thick mud in some areas and will need to be tightly secured, although not too tight that they’re uncomfortable….obviously.
The right clothing will make the whole experience that little bit easier. We recommend substance over style on this occasion. While we don’t necessarily favour any particular clothing choices, we would mention the following:
Fancy dress welcome!
Once the Zombie Run has been conquered, the post-race endorphins and adrenaline buzz will only keep you warm for so long. We recommend bringing the following:
Parents who are coming to run alongside their kids, go free of charge, however they will not be provided with food after the race. They may be able to purchase food after the kids get theirs.
