Run For Your Lives: The Zombie Infested 5k Obstacle Race
Okay, many of you have seen AMC’s show, The Walking Dead, and everyone has seen some type of zombie movie at some point. Zombie’s chase, you run. Well, now is the time to find out which slowpoke friends of yours you may not want in your wolfpack come the future zombie apocalypse.
Introducing Run For Your Lives, a zombie infested 5k race coming to Southern California.
Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the overly intimidating game of flag football. These flags represent your health. The zombies want to take your flags and maybe eat your brains. If you lose all your health flags, you die. And the zombies win. Health bonuses will be hidden throughout the course. If you find one and carry it to the finish, it will save your life.
WHAT YOU’RE UP AGAINST
Throughout the 5K obstacle race, there will be 12 man-made and natural obstacles for you to complete. Runners may choose NOT to complete an obstacle, BUT any runner who skips an obstacle will not be eligible for prizes. There will be zombies. Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flag belt. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags.
Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, your time will be recorded, but you will not be eligible for awards.
HOW YOU’LL DO IT
There will be a start line, and a finish line, but what happens in between is up to you. There are multiple routes to reach the finish. Choose wisely, or your 5k might turn into a 10k.
