Zombie Evacuation Race – Prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse!

Have you ever wondered how you would fare in a zombie apocalypse? Now you have a chance to find out!

We at Pure Rawk like a good adrenaline rush (especially one that involves SFX, blood, gore and pyrotechnics!) so when we heard about the Zombie Evacuation Race, we jumped at the chance to get involved. Here’s the official press release – more information to follow!

Will YOU be ready for the Evacuation?

Bassingbourn Barracks: October 27th, 2012.

Zombie Evacuation Race will take its brave participants aka “evacuees” through the most terrifying running journey of their lives! Participants will navigate through a 5k forest with a series of obstacles, all 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.  “The entire Zombie Evacuation Race team are avid fans of zombie and post apocalyptic movies. Our team wanted to bring a zombie apocalypse scenario to life and provide the most unique and intense racing experience. We have Hollywood SFX makeup artists and pyrotechnicians involved in making the zombie apocalypse experience as realistic as possible. This is going to be the craziest halloween event… a day you will never forget!” –  Jessica Fordham, Race Director.

After completing the race as a survivor (or as a newly-created zombie), participants will be able to celebrate at the Post Evacuation Party with a “Zombie Target Practice” range, zombie inspired games and contests with prizes, and delicious food that will make the living dead jealous.

Those who are too afraid to race, are invited to apply online to be a zombie in the event, join the cast in various roles, or simply attend as a spectator.

The Zombie Evacuation Race race schedule is now available online with various registration packages available for individuals and teams. Registration closes Oct 25th, 2012 at midnight.
