Zombie Escape 5k Run at King’s Park
**PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN RE-SCHEDULED TO NOVEMBER 11TH DUE TO STORM BRIAN! WE HOPE THIS WON’T CAUSE ANY CONVENIENCE**
Do you have what it takes to escape the Zombie hordes through 5k of obstacles and the roaming ‘Undead’ intent on gorging on human flesh?…
“Zombie Hordes have been spotted around Bournemouth jumping out on unsuspecting members of the public. A ZERO Squad (Zombie Elimination Roaming Operative) has been set up in the local area to help evacuees get to the Safe Zone.”
What is Zombie Escape?
Each participant will have a bib with three flags attached, and it is these that the zombies will attempt to grab hold of.
If you lose your three flags before the end of the race – you have the infection!
This race is about getting outside and having fun with friends and like minded strangers… and erm zombies! The course doesn’t have a timer, so don’t worry about having to run 5k quickly.
Is this course dangerous?
This is a TOTAL NO CONTACT race. There is no pushing, hitting, using weapons, eating or any other physical contacts. The Volunteer Zombies will only attempt to grab the life flags as you go past.
The course does involve obstacles so there will be a certain element of danger. However they have all been designed with the highest levels of safety in mind.
If you get worried then you can approach one of our Zero Marshals (Zombie Elimination Roaming Operatives) who are there to ensure your safety and that you have a good time!
When time does it start?
The event village will be open from 08:30 with the first runners heading off at 10:00, there’s a new wave going every 10 minutes.
You will receive a race pack in your email a couple of weeks before the event with full details, timings and parking.
