BLOODTHIRSTY zombies are ready to put runners to the test at a spine tingling Halloween race.

Legions of the undead will descend on Bassingbourn Barracks in two months for The Zombie Evacuation Race, with entrants pitted against the ghouls in a battle to survive.

The 5k obstacle challenge will see 3,500 runners take on 1,500 zombies from Noon on October 27.

Jessica Fordham, race director, said: “The entire Zombie Evacuation Race team are avid fans of zombie and post apocalyptic movies.

“Our team wanted to bring a zombie apocalypse scenario to life and provide the most unique and intense racing experience.

“We have Hollywood SFX makeup artists and pyrotechnicians involved in making the zombie apocalypse experience as realistic as possible.

“This is going to be the craziest Halloween event, a day you will never forget!”

This is the first event of its kind held in the UK with military re-enactment groups and actors playing medics all drafted in to ensure its one to remember.

Spaces are running out for the race but the brave can apply online for a variety of prices starting at £35.
