Press Release: Grab Tune Hotels Holiday Voucher from Zombie Busters at LivingSocial Zombie Run 2013

KUALA LUMPUR, 7 November 2013 – Tune Hotels will further heat up the upcoming LivingSocial Zombie Run 2013 this 16 November by deploying a number of ‘Zombie Busters’ who will give away Tune Hotels stay vouchers to lucky runners.

The ‘Zombie Busters’ will be stationed at random locations along the running route and runners who successfully spotted and identified the right Tune Hotels ‘Zombie Buster’ will receive a two-day, one-night stay voucher at selected Tune Hotels in Malaysia and Bali, Indonesia. Together with the hotel voucher, they will also receive a ‘life flag’ that will help them continue to finish the race.

Kishore Suppiah, General Manager Hotel Operations of Tune Hotels said: “As a young, fun and cool brand, we are thrilled to be associated with Living Social for the Zombie Run. I am sure this will be a fantastic event and I would like to congratulate the organiser for such an overwhelming response from the public.”

All 800 tickets to participate in the LivingSocial Zombie Run have been sold out, just days after they started selling on 26 September.

Meanwhile, running up to the event, Tune Hotels is also organising a photo contest on the photo-based social media platform Instragram until 13 November where five Instagrammers with the best zombie make-up will get to win Tune Hotels stay vouchers.

The LivingSocial Zombie Run 2013 is a five-kilometre marathon* race that will take place at Padang Utara in Petaling Jaya on Saturday, 16 November 2013. The fun run will start at 7.30 pm over a route around Petaling Jaya infested with ‘zombies’.

Regional CEO of LivingSocial Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia Nazar Musa said: “The LivingSocial Zombie Run is full of gut-wrenching, blood-pumping, sweat-dripping fear. It will be the most exhilarating and thrilling five-kilometre marathon of your life.”

By using the popular Zombie theme, the LivingSocial Zombie Run creates a running narrative on a road route designed like a normal marathon but with an unexpected twist of the Zombies as obstacles. Participant’s goal is not only making it to the finish line but to keep one’s life flags from being captured by the hundreds of zombies lurking throughout the route.

Prizes worth up to RM3,000 will be rewarded to the top five finishers with the best time and life flags intact.

KAI Image Academy will be undertaking full professional zombies make over for the zombie participants to create a surreal infestation atmosphere for the marathon *run.

Apart from Tune Hotels, the LivingSocial Zombie Run is sponsored by Everlast, Kai Image Academy for professional zombie make-up artists, Mehron Zombie Make up Product, Revive, and TRON.

For those who just want to have some fun and witness this surreal zombie infestation atmosphere, the admission is free to the public to attend the Apocalypse party on the field of Padang Utara, Petaling Jaya on 16 November. For more information,
