Run For Your Lives is a popular zombie-infested 5K race beginning May 5th in Massachusetts and winding its way across the country. Registration is open now for most locations, but space is going fast!
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.
If you’re interested in signing up, make sure to watch the video first. Because this is one seriously tough obstacle course! But there are many different ways to get involved; sponsors, vendors, bands. Heck, you can even sign up to be a zombie!
Of course, if you’re like me… you’d probably rather just purchase The Apocalypse Pass which allows you to drink beer and taunt your friends from the peanut gallery. Either way, swing by the official website, or stop by the Facebook page if that’s your thing, and see if they’re coming to a town near you!
