WHAT SHOULD I ASK

Not sure… Get some ideas below

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT RAINS

We all get wet

Please be prepared troops. Our UK weather is somewhat unpredictable, if it is likely to show bad weather on the day please bring suitable clothing / umbrella etc. The race will no doubt be a little more fun but let’s all hope for sunshine so we can enjoy the after party too.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE

To take part in the race you must be at least 16 to register yourself, for children under 16 we would recommend parents contact for more details and decide whether it is suitable for their child. There will be roleplay elements to the race which will create at times, a scary atmosphere. Please contact helenkirby@butterwick.org.uk for more details. Minimum age to be a Zombie is 18.

WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE

Your wave time will be confirmed by email. You need to arrive for registration at least one hour before the wave time.

IS THERE A CHARGE FOR SPECTATORS

We do not charge an entry fee for spectators, however car parking is £5 so please car pool where possible.

CAN I HIDE MY HEALTH TAGS

You could… it’s not hard and you wouldn’t be the first, but do you really want to?

You’ll be cheating yourself, your family and future generations. You’ll probably get taunted all the way round, frowned upon by fellow racers, marshalls and even Zombies.

Win, lose or draw.. earn the respect of others, your countrymen and above all yourself… BE THE BEST!

WHAT SHOULD I BRING

Your registration number (print out of your confirmation email is a good idea too)

Your signed race waiver (included in your registration pack)

Health questionnaire (as above)

Cash for food/drinks/games

Change for parking £5, please car pool where possible

Allies to run with / use as human sacrifices

Only water can be brought on site with you, also available to buy

A towel and change of clothes (please be aware there aren’t any showers though… sorry)

ARE REFUNDS AVAILABLE

Sadly not… But we do allow transfers.

Feel free to sell your ticket on, you have until one week before the race day to email helenkirby@butterwick.org.uk and arrange a ticket transfer.

WHAT IF I LOSE ALL HEALTH TAGS

The virus is slow to take hold, finish the race and our decontamination team will do their best to reverse the effects at the end of the race.

Should this be unsuccessful I’m afraid you have to get ready for a life of shuffling and the odd moan.

One silver lining though, you’ll be able to enter as a Zombie next year… I’d say you’ll do well in the fancy dress compo too!

WHAT IF I GET HURT

If this involves being bitten by a Zombie, I’m afraid there isn’t much we can do during the course.

If you choose to injure yourself on an obstacle or, say, a piece of uneven ground perhaps, then our fantastic team of first aiders will be with you in a flash.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR

Definitely go fancy dress we’d say… ‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ is a great place to start.

If you’re going to stick with serious running gear please include a 118 tashe and definitely sweat bands.

WHAT PRIZES ARE UP FOR GRABS

Fastest time

Most epic costume (runners)

Best dressed Zombie

Best make-up

Worst costume

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE

1) Pray

2) Play lots of bulldog with friends (preferably in a playground if you can)

3) Lots of postit notes and pictures around the edge of a mirror

4) My old trainer Mickey used to be big on chasing chickens back in the day, I’d definitely give that a go

I HAVE LOST MY RUNNERS PACK AND PASS

Not a problem… Just email helenkirby@butterwick.org.uk with your registration number.

“But I’ve lost the registration number too”… O’dear O’dear O’dear, don’t worry just email with your name and email that you booked with and we’ll do loads of hard work, find your details and send a replacement. We’re nice like that.
