In order to control overpopulation, a government army of mindless zombies are starved and kept chained in total darkness then unleashed on just one terrifying night of the year to create havoc and mayhem. This year these walking dead, who desire nothing more than chasing down humans and feasting on their flesh, this year they are coming for you!
The first new moon before Halloween sees men, woman and children run the gauntlet of obstacles chased down by the flesh-eating zombies in an event affectionately called the 'Don't Be Dead Last' zombie run.
In a world where Survival is key, only the strong survive. With more than $1200 worth of amazing prizes up for grabs for both zombies and survivors. Why not collect your crew, put on the war paint and come and celebrate the essence of Survival. Have fun for a great cause this Halloween.
