On Saturday October 28, a crowd of terrifying zombies will once again be released onto the Salthill Prom.
Their mission, to capture every human (big or small ) who dares to take on the challenge of The Village Salthill Zombie Chase and prevent them from making it to the Safety Zone of Salthill Park.
The Zombie Chase, now in its second year, is a fun filled family 2k chase in aid of the National Support and awareness charity, ACT for Meningitis, which has been organised by the community association of local business owners The Village Salthill.
The group came together to promote and rejuvenate the general Salthill area, including its interaction with arts and culture, improved parks and amenities, and a general improvement of the Salthill area. The group is working together to ensure Salthill is a great place to live, work in, visit, and of course, be chased by zombies.
Speaking at the launch of The Zombie Chase, group member Ross Curran says; “We are very excited for the return of this amazing event, which we are planning to make even bigger and better this year. We are extremely proud, once again, to be raising funds for such a deserving charity, ACT for Meningitis, who do tremendous work in our community, and indeed nationwide, by raising life saving awareness and providing a wide range of free support services to anyone in Ireland affected by meningitis.
“We have all been extremely busy recapturing our zombies who have been in hiding since their massive defeat by the people of Galway last year and we will be keeping them under lock and key until the chase. This is never an easy task and I have no doubt these guys will be out for revenge in Salthill once released, exactly three minutes after our humans start running.”
The Zombie Chase will begin at 2pm at the Galway Business School, Salthill, and once released, the terrifying demons will chase our humans along the prom attempting to capture them by stealing their tags.
All humans that make it to the safety zone in Salthill Park with tags intact will be entered into the monster raffle and in with a chance of winning a prize and all little humans taking part will be rewarded with a finishers goodie-bag after the chase. Spot prizes will also be given for best fancy dress.
