Fundraisers looking to generate cash for a favoured good cause need look no further than the KM Charity Team’s Zombie Charge.

Organised in association with personal fitness business MY/PT, the ‘monster’ event takes place for the first time at Betteshanger Park in Deal on Sunday October 28, starting at 2pm, and is just the thing to get you warmed up for Halloween.

Participants in the themed run will be issued with three life tags, and the challenge is to get round the 5km course before the horde of remorseless zombies – rumoured to be former park staff poisoned by a mystery gas cloud last year – strip them from you.

But rest assured, the zombies will not attack or chase you; there will be no physical contact – they are just after your tags.

The Zombie Charge is a fundraising event, with 70% of the sponsorship money going to good causes of your choice, and the rest helping to fund the KM Charity Team’s charitable road-safety work with children.

Participants are asked to aim to raise a minimum of £100 in sponsorship, and anybody who individually raises more than £200 will be entered into a draw to win a luxury spa day for two people including afternoon tea.

You should be over 10 to take part, and anyone under 16 must have a responsible adult running with them.

Under-18s do not need to fundraise but are welcome to do so if they wish.

To find out more, contact event coordinator Dominic Comins at or on 0844 264 0291.
