Adventure races are becoming more and more commonplace; running trails, jumping over hurdles and wading through swamps are now par of the course. The Zombie Evacuation race has taken the phenomenon a step further with an adventure race with an eerie difference.
Inspiration for the race came from a zombie movie teamed with a desire by the founders - a couple from the midlands - to create a race that combined fitness and fun. Thus the Zombie Evacuation was born.
The Autumn race series consists of four events up and down the country, see below for details. Each event involves a 5K race that will take participants or “evacuees” through a forest with a series of obstacles, all the while being chased by zombies. Participants will have to make strategic choices along the way to find the quickest route to the finish line with their health still intact.
