The UK’s most unique Zombie Run experience Course Information

Are you looking for a Zombie Experience to run with friends, family or colleagues then this is something a bit different? The Zombie Run is the UK’s premier zombie-infested 5K obstacle course. Participants assume the role of either a Survivor or a Zombie in this one-of-a-kind event filled with thrilling chases, rocking music and kick-ass obstacles and a full-on encounter with “the running dead”, this event promises a fun day (and night) with friends, colleagues and evil ex-bosses alike. Now ask yourself: When was the last time you ran for your life?

What is the Zombie Run?

The Zombie is an action-packed zombie survival experience. This post-apocalyptic zombie event is set in a top-secret testing area and your mission is to deliver the top-secret information from the base camp to the test lab five kilometres away. Once you enter the grounds be prepared. You are in the land of the dead! Each event features story-driven combat against the zombie infection, armed with only your two feet and your wits will you survive?, will you be cunning enough to escape the ‘Screamer’ tough enough to take on the ‘Armour’ and fast enough to escape the ‘The Experiment’

As a Special Ops Runner

Your goal is simple: Get to the Safe Zone with at least one life remaining. There is only one thing standing in your way, the dead hungry Zombies.

The three lives (flags /body tags) are like natural Zombie magnets that unwillingly attract their attention as you attempt to dash past them. Adding to the difficulty are the treacherous natural and man-made obstacles littered all over the route. Equipped with only your two feet and quick wits, you’ll quickly see that it’s not how fast you run, but how well you run that matters. Will, you survive?

Special Ops Runner (The Running Dead)

If you lose your flags you are now part of the running dead!! You must carry on the race!! All is not over. Your skin has turned paler. Your cheeks have lost the look of life. Bits of the flesh are hanging from your chin, some of which are your own. You see a perfectly healthy person and for some strange reason, you have the urge to follow him, along with hundreds of others just like you.
