Zombie Evacuation Race is a brilliant ‘starter’ adventure race series in the UK, and this year we’re giving you the chance to run it with UsFitties and raise money for charity!
It is true – we’re racing at Zombie Evacuation Race this year and we need you to join the UsFitties Team to help us raise money for Make-a-Wish Foundation UK, fend of the zombie hordes and have a great day out.
You may remember that last year we helped promote Zombie Evacuation Race – ZER for short – with two amazing competitions and a helpful discount code that allowed you get money off your entry. Well, we’ve taken that idea and supersized it for 2013!
Not only can you get 10% of your entry using the code USFITTIES at the checkout over on the ZER homepage, we’re doing something really special this year.
In a recent interview over on the ZER forums (worth a read!), we challenged one of the organisers to follow three simple rules for the next thirteen weeks to help him get in shape for the race, which we’ll be running with him in Cambridge on October 5th 2013.
So, how do you get involved and join the UsFitties Team at the race? And what do you get for teaming up with us?
Simple. Head over to the ZER homepage and sign up for the race using the discount code USFITTIES at the checkout to get 10% off. Just make sure you sign up as a runner, not a zombie!
Once you have confirmation of your entry, it is time to join us on the UsFitties Team.
Just go to our UsFitties Team Page at JustGiving.com and click ‘Join the Team’.
Either connect an existing JustGiving page to the team if you have one or create a new fundraising page. We’ll see your request to join and we’ll accept you on the team. If you have any issues or questions about the process, just get in touch. We’ll do our best to help you.
Important: You need to link your JustGiving page to ‘Make-A-Wish Foundation UK’ when asked which cause you’re supporting, or we won’t be able to add you to our team.
Don’t forget to set a target for your donation amount to help us keep track of how well we’re all doing against our combined total! We find that £200-250 is completely achievable, but competitive people should probably aim higher…
What do you get for being on our team?
UsFitties team members will get:
- A special UsFitties team t-shirt
- A special UsFitties training program to help you survive the zombie masses
- A digital package of pictures and other aids to help you get the most from your fundraising page
- Constant promotion from the UsFitties website and social media accounts
- All the advertised benefits that come with entry to Zombie Evacuation Race
- The warm, fuzzy feeling that comes from helping grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions.
If you race at the Cambridge event (there are four locations and dates available this year), you’ll run the event with the UsFitties team and one of the organisers of ZER, but don’t let that dissuade you! Just choose the event closest to you and we’ll make sure you have an awesome day, whichever location you pick.
