There is an event coming to my area in August called the "Run For Your Lives 5K" and guess what? I'm doing it! It is a fun, kind of scary, challenging and did I mention fun? race that I am doing.
Check out some of the pictures from their website:
I cannot believe that I am going to do this race but I'm sure it will be fun. I'm also sure that I will be running a bit faster and screaming a bit more than usual! I mean, I've never been chased by zombies before but I am betting that it will be a little more than exciting!
Each runner wears a belt with three flags on it and the "zombies" are trying to take your flags from you.
From their website:
ObstaclesIf being chased by zombies isn’t enough, we will have a series of man-made and natural obstacles waiting for you throughout the course. Jump, slide, and climb your way through our blood pit, smokehouse, and maze (amongst others), all while zombies are hot on your tail. Test your strength, speed, and wit as you battle your way to our shocking finish. Make it through this last obstacle, and you are finally in the Safe Zone.
There is also an Apocolypse party after the race so we will get to unwind a little after the running, obstacle doing and screaming, er, fun.
I encourage you all to go visit their site and see if this event is coming to your area and sign up.....it's not everyday that you can say you ran from and escaped from zombies!!
If you have any questions about the race, you can check out their FAQ's page to get all the information you need.
