  • Website: HOW IT WORKS

    Run For Your Lives is an apocalyptic 5K obstacle race. But you’re not just running against the clock — you’re running from brain-hungry, virus-spreading, bloody zombies.

    • 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.
    • Throughout the 5K obstacle race, there will be a series of 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 “alive” with at least ONE FLAG INTACT (or a health bonus pack). If you finish with zero health flags, this means the zombies have successfully transformed you into the “undead”;  your time will be recorded, but you will not be eligible for awards.

    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.

    Guess I'd better start jogging, since I can't run very far as it is!
