Zombie Run is a fun game which has gained recognition and following abroad. Never before has the game been run in South Africa and 2013 is the year for our local apocalypse. The premise of the game is that participants will register either as a runner or as a zombie and take part in the game itself. The game is set on 5km of pre-existing trail, with 6 added tasks or obstacles for runners to complete.
Runners will carry 3 “lives” in the form of flags and will depart from the start line in waves of 100 runners. Once all their lives have been taken, they are considered “turned” but are permitted to complete the course regardless. This is not a timed race. Zombies can register for one of 2 roles – full zombie (classified before the run as Stumblers or Chasers), or Zombie Horde (for crowd effect, with lesser game rights).
During and after the event, runners, spectators and zombies are encouraged to stay and enjoy a day outdoors, with light entertainment. Above all, the event is a game and is meant for entertainment purposes only, and as such there will be strict game rules which will be enforced with the help of Marshalls and the Zombie Horde.
