SYNOPSISThere is an unexplained outbreak of a zombie virus, with thousands of the undead rising from graves and morgues. Zombie races are getting more popular now and they are a break from the racing element of Obstacle Races and just a bit of fun.
Knowing this event was at one of my favourite venues Pippingford Park, it had me filled with excitement. Upon arrival we had to pay ?5 to park the car (a charge that is becoming more common), I asked the marshall if the money was going to charity, it was clear she didn’t know. Once I was parked up I met up with another member of my team and we walked down towards the registration area at the bottom of the hill. Once registered we got timing chips and were asked to write our race number somewhere on our person.
We were given a belt to wear which had 3 tags attached to it, the aim was to get to the finish with at least one tag still attached, the zombies aim was get everyone’s tags. We had the obligatory pre-race briefing where we were told not to physically engage with the zombies as they would consider us infected and we would have to be shot! Then we were off, we were in the first wave at 11am and there was a slight bottleneck as soon as we hit the wood but this cleared pretty quickly as the faster more confident runners used the available terrain. After some brief running we knew the first zombie was coming up due to the screams we could hear ahead! From there we weaved in and out of the woodland encountering a variety of zombies, some of which were quite quick and some which were slower and therefore easy to get past. About 2 miles in we came across some more walls, as we approached the first one a couple of zombies popped up on the other side.
Up and over the next solid wall was ok for me but a couple of team mates weren’t so lucky as a zombie took the opportunity to sneak up and steal their tags from behind their backs! Some more weaving in and out of woodlands before we had a final building to go through which had Zombies lurking around.
On finish you receive an event t-shirt (which is good quality) and you get either a survivor or infected dog tag as a medal. There were no clean up facilities available but this had been made clear on the race emails so back to the car ready for the journey home.
Zombie survival game 2.8 Hours Later is returning to the North East in 2015 for an expanded six night run. Disclaimer: The following is written by an opinionated oaf and should not be taken particularly seriously. A week to go until our next Session, and no doubt we'll be hitting Last Night On Earth pretty hard.

The next problem is the Zombie Grave Weapon miniature pack lacks 4 kinds of Special Zombies. This item will be sent through the Global Shipping Programme and includes international tracking.

Picture this – you have 5km to get round an obstacle course with zombies hiding and ready to pounce on you on route.
Registration is the same as for Spartan Races, you get an email with the waiver to print prior to arrival and are asked to bring ID when registering. There was a bag drop but it didn’t appear to organised with no clear marking of number on bags, it was more of a ‘describe your bag to me’ recovery approach.  There also wasn’t a key drop facility, we ended up with my colleague scratching his race number onto his key fob and it went into the bag drop area. Given the undulating and muddy nature of the venue I was surprised to see quite a few people in normal trainers; you could see a few struggling in the slippy conditions. What was disappointing here was that a number of people decided to cut the corner and miss the zombie altogether – after all zombies were the reason we were there! Then we came across an area where there was some fake blood to smear on ourselves which I would guess was to try and convince zombies we were also the undead. As well as this there were a couple of obstacles to go under and some walls on route as well. By going through the wall you would be a prime target to get a tag taken so I went up on top of the wall and jumped over the zombies!
It was then out into the open for a final sprint up the hill to the finish line avoiding half a dozen zombies on route. Must admit did get some funny looks when I stopped at the services, guess they’ve not seen a bloke in shorts covered in mud and fake blood on a Sunday afternoon before! It would have been better if they could have utilised more of the Pippingford terrain and maybe introduced some of the available water obstacles.
The live action role playing game, which in June last year saw hundreds of a€?survivorsa€? make their way across the city while being chased by the a€?undead,a€? will be back in May with a new story. Players will need to do all this without being caught by the rampaging zombies.a€? Once again characters within the game are played by actors in full costume and make-up and players who are a€?caughta€? by the living dead will be marked with invisible ink signifying infection.

I have a pack of unbuilt Mantic Zombies kicking around, so I hacked up a few, cut off some arms, moved them backwards, and ended up with this. By clicking Confirm bid you commit to buy this item from the seller if you are the winning bidder. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. A few chaps in front of us clearly hadn’t seen the ID requirement in the email so were ‘in discussion’ with the registration team! It didn’t work though as the first ones we encountered after this took my first tag (two still left). On the course there was also a hospital area where we were told to try and find a syringe which would contain an antidote to combat if we lost all 3 tags.
On approach to the finish line you were directed into survivor or infected sections depending on whether you had any tags left. No facts were considered, opinions withheld, spelling checked, and certainly no proof reading occured. Looks like it will add some fun, especially with Grave Weapon zombies - zombies with, er, weapons and shit. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. Many other characters also try to escape the zombies, as some neighbors wait out the virus in a panic room and others attempt to flee the attacks. We didn’t find one as we went through – the zombie at the location encouraged us to move swiftly! Participants will join a resistance movement as they attempt to locate the last remaining group of uninfected children left on earth and prevent humanitya€™s extinction - before someone, or something, else does.
Fortunately, a local news station reveals that the zombies return to their graves at sunrise.
That will involve players a€?leaving their zombie proof headquarters at a€?Asyluma€™ and breaking into a quarantined slum run by a brutal warlord and that is rife with the infected.a€? a€?Armed with little more than a map, players will have to complete physical as well as mental tasks whilst evading the zombie hordes roaming the city streets,a€? Mr Evans said. Our only restriction is you have to be over 18 to play.a€? At the end of the evenings, in a gesture of solidarity to show zombies and humans can live in harmony, everyone will once again head to a zombie disco after the game.
