Back by popular demand!
Run For Your Freak'n Life will be returning for a second run this year but with a twist! On Saturday 27th October our zombies will be taking over once again to bring you the Halloween edition of our incredibly popular Run For Your Freak'n Life!
This is one race where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. “Run for your Freak’n Life” is a first-of-its-kind in New Zealand event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies – and all parts are awesome.
Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the childhood game of flag football. The zombies want to take your flags and maybe eat your brains. If you lose all your flags, you die. And the zombies win. If you are unable to complete an obstacle, you need to surrender 1 of your flags.
There will be a start line, and a finish line, but what happens in between is up to you.
“Run for your Freak’n Life Halloween Edition” will be held at Spookers Haunted Attraction Scream Park on Saturday 27th October 2018. Spookers is located in the grounds of the old Kingseat Psychiatric Hospital and has over 40 acres at its disposal. The hospital has been closed for many years but has fascinating grounds and an intriguing history.
Our hand-selected zombies are the best of the worst from Spookers Haunted Attraction Scream Park. They are trained professionals with many years of serious experience. Spookers’ zombies have a goal; to chase you down and snatch your flags until you are dead. Zombies will not physically touch the competitors other than trying to get a flag.
Throughout the 5K obstacle race there will be more than 20 horrifying obstacles that will be physically challenging, but not without a solution. They may include getting down and dirty, climbing, crawling and generally getting you slammed. The ever threatening zombies at the obstacles will be urging you on to do more than you ever thought physically possible.
Competitors must be at least 13 years old by race day in order to participate.
Run For Your Freak'n Life Halloween edition will NOT include a RFYFL t-shirt. Each runner will receive a Spookers Doublescare pass valued at $40ea and a sports drink to power you up before the race!
Each runner must be registered at least 30 mins before their race and MUST present your downloaded Eventfinda PDF tickets as proof of purchase.
There will be a $500 prize for the best dressed Halloween themed team!
Spectators welcome - there will be some viewing places for spectators including the start and finish line!
Spookers cafe will be open all day.
Registrations close on Wednesday 24th October 12pm.
