Ok, so they’re not really dead, but they are dressed like zombies.
In this event, you literally ‘run for your life’.
Ok, well, not really. You’re not going to get killed. Runners wear flags that the zombies try to grab. The goal is to keep your flags and run the fastest time.
If you’re looking for a new kind of event, check out the “Run for Your Lives” race.
The race is billed as a ‘Zombie Infested 5K Obstacle Course Race’. The 5K course contains 12 obstacles, as well as those creatures trying to get you.
Currently, registration is open for 11 races nationwide with events in Southern California (Temecula), St. Louis, Missouri and Austin, Texas, among others, with more locations to come.
If you like a little scare in your run, this just might be just the race for you.
Maybe you have a friend who thinks running is crazy and says that he/she can only run when someone is chasing them. In this race, there is plenty of that, so bring your buddy along.
Or maybe you’re not a runner at all, well then how about being a zombie? There are openings for those at these events as well.
Whatever your motivation, this unique event is sure to offer everything a runner, or non-runner, could want — fun and food with friends. What more could you want? Surely, you will survive — or will you?!?
