***Zombierun Wellington 2013***

ZOMBIERUN is an interactive apocalyptic 5 km run through a zombie infested quarantine area! But you’re not just running against the clock... You’re also running from blood-thirsty, virus-infected, brain-eating zombies!

The scariest race ever and a lot of fun! Sign-up as runner or as zombie, now with discount for AW-members. This is one event you don't want to miss!

What happened?

An outbreak of a strange virus in Wellington has caused all infected people to be quarantined on Matiu/Somes Island, a place steeped in history of human and animal disease. Doctors on the island worked around the clock to find a cure, but just when they found a vaccine... things went horribly wrong. It's your task to find the vaccines before you get eaten or even worse... turn into one of them!

How it works

After registration on Queens Wharf (Chicago Bar), a ferry will take you over to Matiu/Somes Island, where you'll receive last minute instructions on how to survive and how to find the vaccines on the island. It's an island, it's either find the vaccines or get eaten...

If you find the vaccines and reach the finish line in one piece, the emergency team will signal the ferry to pick you up and bring you to the safe area where a great afterparty to celebrate your survival awaits.

  • You will be given a flag belt with three flags that represent your health
  • Zombies will be waiting to grab your flags and eat your brains
  • If you lose all your health flags, you're dead, and the zombies win
  • Health packs will be hidden throughout the course
  • In these health packs you'll find extra flags you can attach to your flag belt
  • Two vaccines will be hidden throughout the course
  • You have to find these vaccines to be allowed to continue and complete your mission


What to expect

  • The unexpected!
  • Hordes of hungry zombies, crawling, staggering or running, waiting to jump you and eat your brains
  • Man-made and natural obstacles that will slow you down to make you easier prey
  • Use smart thinking to find the vaccines and choose your route wisely, or your 5k might become a 10k!
  • Use speed and strategy to make it to the finish line alive, that means a least one flag intact. If you finish with zero health flags, even the vaccines cannot save you anymore…

    I've survived two years in a row! Thanks all for organising, volunteering, running and eating our brains. Much appreciated. I was one of the team of doctors in labcoats, in case you met me.

    Great event! Great (dead) people! And the make up guys did a phenomenal job as confirmed by the terrified runners I talked to on the boat home.

  • Felicitas B.

    Tried to register on the website, about five times now, but it doesn't work. :(
    Internal error pops up in the end whenever I try it.

    August 8, 2013

    • Felicitas B.

      Obviously it doesn't work with my phone. Tried it with my laptop and it worked. Yayyy! :)

      August 8, 2013

    • Roy H.

      Yes sorry Felicitas, the registration on the website isn't optimised for mobile phones.

  • Natalie

    Hi, are we able to pick either wave time? Or is there an AW specific one?

    August 5, 2013

    • KK

      I would like to know as well.

      August 5, 2013

    • Roy H.

      Yes, you are able to pick either wave time. There is no AW specific wave time (there will be a couple of zombies specifically targeting AW-ers though...)
