It’s among one of the most popular trending races going right now brought on by the growing interest of Zombie movies like “World War Z” and “28 Days Later” and the very popular tv show, “Walking Dead”… Zombie races! And now it’s time for Niagara Falls to get infected!
Zombie Mud Run Canada will be headed to Haunt Manor at 9387 Lundy’s Lane (Hwy. 20) in Niagara Falls on Saturday, September 13th, 2014!
This is a 5K Zombie-themed race featuring 20 obstacles that you will have to overcome while trying to avoid getting “infected” by Zombies. Almost all Zombie Mud Run Canada obstacles will remain under wraps until the day of the first “outbreak”– no one knows what they are in for. There is one that I can show you that you can expect to see…
What Can I Expect?
“Expect to see the best zombies, run through natural scenery, professional sets, water slides, mud pits, and more!” Run for your life through a 5km course, all while dodging the undead, and navigate through a multitude of challenging obstacles designed specifically to slow down your escape from relentless hordes of zombies who are hungry for you! You may register as an individual or as a team, with the first “outbreak” at 10:30 am (this is the first “elite” heat that will be timed for a special zombie prize for the first woman or man to make it to the finish with at least ONE flag remaining). After that, all “outbreaks” will be released every half an hour with no more than 100 runners per heat.
Every runner will be provided with 3 flags. The idea is to run through a 5km course full of Zombies and challenging obstacles with at least 1 flag remaining. The Zombies will try to sneak up on you and steal your flags or “life lines” in order to infect you and turn you into one of them. Once you complete the course, you will be provided with a medal. The majority of entrants (approximately statistics of up to 80% according to Phil Vankleef, coordinator of Zombie Mud Run Canada) will finish with an “infected” medal — while only about 20% of entrants will be powerful enough to finish the race with a “survivor” medal. You will really need to challenge your persistence and agility, and you are encouraged to register in teams to greatly increase your chances of survival by helping your teammates complete the obstacles.
When you have completed Zombie Mud Run Canada, you will be treated to an after party. Be rewarded with a t-shirt, medal, a complimentary drink and live music and entertainment.
The evening will be all yours to explore Niagara Falls afterwards. Head down to Clifton Hill and continue with all the fun and excitement, because we are happy to report discounts for all entrants.
