Run For Your Lives is a 5K zombie obstacle course starting in Baltimore this fall. They plan on rolling more out across the country if it's successful. Sounds like a kick-ass time for any fitness guru who just so happens to have an undying love for horror and the undead. How the race will work:
* 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.
