Get ready to “Run For Your Lives” in the zombie 5K race, coming to a city near you. Run For Your Lives is part 5K race, part obstacle course, and all zombies. Runners in the race will have to navigate through various obstacles while being chased by zombie hordes. When the race is over (and if you survive the zombie onslaught) you will get to enjoy live entertainment, meet local celebrities, eat food, and drink beer.
Zombie Race Details
Before the race begins, you get a flag belt, which represents your overall health. The belt contains a certain number of flags.
The zombies chasing you try to take your flags away. If you lose all your flags, you’re toast, dude.
Health bonuses are hidden throughout the course. Look for them.
There will be man-made and natural obstacles to complete. Skip them and you don’t get any prizes.
Make it to the finish line with at least one health flag intact.
There are multiple routes to the finish line. Some are longer than others.
After the race, enjoy the apocalypse party!
