Prepare to run 5k to escape Lincoln zombies

Run for your lives: A 5k in Lincoln this autumn is set to be like no other race event in the city.

If you missed out on the Lincoln 10k, you will be given another chance to run for your life, away from zombies.

The Zombie Run UK, supported by Off The Bench, will host a 5k Zombie Run at the Lincolnshire Showground.

As well as running 5k, survivors (entrants) will have to dodge a number of obstacles and the undead, who will try and pass on the infection.

Each entrant will receive three tags, representing their lives. Zombies will try and steal these.

Whoever completes the race with all their tags is crowned an ultimate survivor.

Off The Bench has been doing a number of promotional events to encourage people to take part, including a video and zombie invasions around the city.

The Zombie Run will take place in other cities across the East Midlands, including Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield.

The Lincoln event will be on October 14, and ticket entry is £22 for adults, £10 for children, and £10 for three extra lives.
