Christmas, Hallowe'en, Easter, all summer long. We provide a range of fun and famous events across the year for families and thrill-seekers alike.


Published on: 9 October 2021


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



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.

Time to 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.

Medal Delay

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.

Sports Clothing

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:

  • Tighter fitted clothing – loose clothing will weigh you down and hold more mud and water and will generally be a bit more annoying when cold and wet.
  • Fast drying active wear – now is the time to break out your Clima Cools and Dri Fits. Tops and bottoms with quick drying technology will be beneficial in that it will provide greater ventilation and also will dry quicker, so you won’t be weighed down.
  • Clothing which let’s you move – your complete range of motion will be tested on the course, so we recommend wearing active wear clothing which will let you be as flexible as you need to be.
  • Socks – the optimal choice would be socks designed with some sort of quick-drying technology. If you don’t have these, then most sports socks will do the trick. Your feet will be pretty important during the course, so we recommend taking good care of them and showing them some love!
  • Gloves – not a necessity, however could give you that extra bit of support or grip on some of the tougher obstacles. Again, hard wearing and breathable gloves like cycling or weight lifting gloves may be the best option.


  • Sports watches and timers – if you want to accurately record your time we recommend a durable sports watch or device like a FitBit or other exercise monitoring device. Make sure they’re waterproof and can take a bit of wear and tear.
  • Headbands – good for keeping the sweat, mud and tears out of your eyes. For return runners, we hope to see the Zombie Run headbands from last year on show!
  • Goggles – again not necessary although could help in the water obstacles and Slip N Slide.

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:

  • Warm jacket or coat – an old and warm jacket, fleece or coat that you don’t mind getting dirty and you can pull on straight after the race is useful to help bring your body temperature back up. Zombie Run is held in October in the unpredictable Northern Ireland climate… be prepared.
  • Towel – there are no showers available at Zombie Run. Therefore we recommend bringing an old towel to dry yourself off after the race.
  • Change of clothes – self-explanatory really. No one wants to travel home in wet clothes.
  • Extra cash – we will have T-shirts available to buy on the day. You will also need a couple of £1 coins for the bag drop area, should you wish for us to look after your belongings while you’re on the course.


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.
