Organiser Rory Foley said A there’s plenty of people from Waimate and beyond keen to take part in the event. ‘‘There has been huge interest. I’d say there will be 200-odd people who are going to be competing.’’ The day will act as a fundraiser for Oamaru’s Jasmine Rule who heads to Cairo, n estimated 200 runners will attempt to dodge the undead at next month’s Egypt in December for the women’s golf croquet world championships. Those competing will wear a tag on each thigh and attempt to complete a two kilometre course featuring several obstacles, similar to an assault course. However, those obstacles are nothing compared to the most challenging ones of all. ‘‘There will be 30-plus zombies trying to drag the tags off you,’’ said Foley. If successful, Foley believes the Zombie Run/Walk, which he says is extremely popular in the United States, will return. ‘‘We’re really keen to make this a long-term thing,’’ he said. The event is open to people 13 years of age and over. However, Foley said those under the age of 16 require their parents permission. The cost is $10 per person or $40 for a team of five with a gold coin donation for those keen to watch the action, which gets underway at 1pm on November 8. Runners and walkers can register on the day. The Zombie Run/Walk is the brainchild of Studholme farmer Rory Foley, the mind behind the Studholme Maize Maze and the Waimate Asylum Horror House attractions.
