Spartan Race and Zombie Evacuation Race

Zombie Evacuation Race

Test your endurance and your apocalypse survival skills in these 'Tough Mudder' style events that are the hottest American imports of the year. There's UK races happening throughout 2013 and 2014 and both come complete with a full set of actors to bring the event to life (and back from the dead in the case of the Zombie race!).

Find your nearest Spartan Race or Zombie Evacuation Race on their websites. We've got a handful of free places on each. If you can guarantee to raise £400 in sponsorship then we'll pay for your place. Email us at for more details or call us on 0207 916 9276.

If you're booking your own place - use the charity discount code WarChild - you'll get a 10% discount and they'll also donate a further 10% of the fee to us..
