MONEYMORE based The Jungle NI is pleased to announce the launch of their fantastic 5K Zombie Infested Charity Run in aid of The Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children (NICFC).

On Sunday 13th October, The Jungle NI shall host Northern Ireland’s first ever Charity Zombie Run transforming their beautiful enchanting forest into a post-apocalyptic world where Zombies lurk and terror reigns.

The Zombie Run is an obstacle race but with a living-dead twist! Each runner starts with three lives (represented by ribbons worn on a belt around the waist) and must make it to the finish line with as many lives as possible. On route however, runners will meet natural and man-made obstacles, in addition, to zombies who will try to steal their lives! Exciting - right?!

The course is littered with obstacles designed to test your strength and pickle your imagination. Hurdles such as cargo nets, hay bales, mazes, tires, fences, mud traps will decorate the way ahead and provide ideal lurking shelters for more zombies than you can shake a stick at! So when the gun shot rings be prepared to sprint and hurdle, duck and dive your way to the finish line for the only way to save yourself is to run … for real!

The Jungle’s Zombie Infested 5K Charity Run is the ultimate seasonal challenge guaranteed to test both your fitness and your strength of courage all the while raising money for The Northern Ireland’s Cancer Fund for Children. Entry is £25 per person and must be booked in advance at If you feel like ticking that good deed off the to-do-list and putting your endurance to the test in the name of charity The Jungle NI would love to have your support!

Sorcha Chipperfield, from the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children commented: “We are delighted to partner with The Jungle NI and offer this unique event to raise vital funds for NICFC. Every week in Northern Ireland, three families will hear the devastating news that their child has been diagnosed with cancer. Many more children are living with a sibling or parent diagnosed with cancer. For these children, young people and their families, life is turned upside down with frequent hospital visits, gruelling treatment and the anxiety and concerns that come with a cancer diagnosis.

NICFC is there from the point of diagnosis to offer practical and emotional support, financial assistance and therapeutic short breaks for families affected by childhood cancer. We can’t provide our vital services without the support of local businesses like The Jungle NI, and their Zombie Run – I urge you to sign up to take part and make a difference to the lives of local families affected by cancer.”
