WHAT IS ZOMBIE EVASION RUN?
The Zombie Evasion Run is a 5km course starting from Puckpool. Utilising the existing features of the park plus a constructed obstacle course.
It will be theatrical from start to finish in true Park of the Dead style. Expect loud noises, flashing lights & moments of horror!!
DO I HAVE TO RUN FROM START TO FINISH?
No, its up to you how you complete the course. You can Run, Jog, Walk, Craw, Moonwalk… or Hop!! How you get round is up to you.
AM I GOING TO BE ATTACKED BY ZOMBIES?
In a simple answer… NO! This is a NON-CONTACT event
HOW DO I SURVIVE?
Each entrant will be given a Velcro belt to wear around their waist with 3 LIFE TAGS attached to it.
The Zombies will try to grab a tag as you run past. If they do, you lose a life.
You must try to finish the run with at least one Life Tag remaining.
CAN I HIDE MY ‘LIFE TAGS’?
The Tags MUST be visible at all times and hanging freely behind you. You are NOT allowed to hide them or tuck them in.
Hiding them is classed as cheating, and do you really want to be known as a cheater!
WHAT IF I LOSE ALL MY LIFETAGS?
If you lose all your Life Tags you must still get to the Finish Line. Once you have crossed the finish line you will be awarded a medal for completing the course.
If you still have one Life Tag, you will finish as a Survivor.
If you loose all 3 Life Tags, you will finish as on of the Infected
Each Life Tag you return with will equal a token prize!! The more Life Tags you have (3 being the maximum), the more prizes you get!!
Don’t Lose Hope..
Hidden amongst the course will be Health Perks. Each Health Perk can replace a lost Life Tag for yourself or one of your teammates.
Keep your Eyes Open!!
However… Stealing someone else’s Life Tag is strictly prohibited and is classed as cheating, which will result in disqualification
If you find a Life Tag lying on the floor that has obviously been dropped, then it is allowed to be picked up and used.
You can also ‘Donate’ one of your own Life Tags to a teammate who has lost all of theirs.
CAN I FIGHT THE ZOMBIES?
CAN I BRING WEAPONS (Real or Mock)?
A Big Fat NO!!
CAN I GRAB THE ZOMBIES OR PUSH THEM OUT OF MY WAY?
No No No!! This is a strict non-contact event.
Our Zombies will do their hardest not to touch you as they will only be going for your Life Tags. Please try your hardest to avoid touching them!
Plus, the Zombies infection is highly contagous!!
Anyone who is seen pushing, grabbing, charging and deliberately breaking the ‘No Contact Rule’ (on Zombies or other runners) will be instantly disqualified from the event.
