Safety First!

Run For Your Lives is a zombie-infested 5K obstacle course race and festival.

The apocalypse is muddy. The 5k course follows a path along a deserted carnival midway, grassy fields, thick forests, barns and outbuildings.

A flimsy fence separates you from hordes of flesh-eating zombies. It is just a matter of time before you are overrun. There is only one hope: a mile and a half away there grows a plant that contains a serum that will save humanity.

Can you overcome obstacles, retrieve the plant and make it back to the safe zone alive?

Before the race, you will be given a flag belt 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. And that would be a major bummer!

Please register on the site for Saturday at 12:30 www.runforyourlives.com RIHC

    It was a lot of fun! I'm really
    glad I did it but I don't think I'll do another - the urge to evade is too strong, therefore the potential for injury too great. I think that may be another way of saying I'm getting too old for this. LOL.

    Hellllllooooooo from NC! First off, I miss you guys! Have fun today! Don't get eaten or I guess even bitten by an dirty old zombie...or even a cute young one. :0 Wish I could be running with you today, but I will be hiking with y'all soon!! Love you guys very much! Jerilyn, A special hug, kiss, and thank you.
    Now, eek! RUN!!

      We missed you very much Liz!!! As far as I know, only four people showed. We had a blast and I'm glad I had the pleasure to enjoy this crazy run with Samir, Jason, and Lynn. I did the best I could with my orange balloon raised for two hours until it blew out.

    Great time with Samir and Jerilyn and Lynne

    Hi everyone! Like Annie Chen, I too am wondering if I can carpool from Providence. I am currently car-less and would prefer to split the gas than rent a car. I would really appreciate the help.

    September 5, 2013

    • Lynne

      Hi Samir - you can carpool with me and Jason if you like. We checked out the park last weekend - it's a small waterpark but they have a couple of ziplines at a very reasonable price so we plan on taking a pass or two before or after the race.

      1 · September 6, 2013

    • Samir

      Thanks Lynne, I just saw your message. I actually am renting a car as I have some other errands to run this weekend. So I will see you at the race!

    Hello fellow runners. Since Liz cant make this event she asked me to help her out. Lets meet at the start at 12 since we run at 12:30. I dont know what to expect there since this is my first Zombie Run too. I will have an orange balloon to mark our group. I did speak with a few other who ran a course like this and they had their legs scraped up quite a bit. They said they would have worn pants instead of shorts. I hope all who signed up can make it. Our group will start with everyone else at 12:30 sharp. We wait for no one. We dont want to get eaten....

    August 27, 2013

    • Jason T.

      I dont want to get eaten the Zombies will be super hungry for the first wave of humans !

      August 27, 2013

    • Jerilyn S S.

      i hope you can make the change for 12:30!

      August 27, 2013

  • Samir

    It seems I can't RSVP to this. I have signed up for the 1230 wave.

    July 25, 2013

    • Matt

      The RSVP cutoff was still set to the original date in July. I changed it to re-open RSVP's.

      July 25, 2013

  • Jerilyn S S.

    FYI: All transfers from the original site (Willington CT) will get a 20.00 voucher and free (10.00) parking spot. You have to bring your original confirmation email to show at parking. Once you check in, you will then get the 20.00 voucher.

    July 15, 2013

  • Liz

    If you have signed up for this event, but haven't received an email from the support team from Run for Your Lives-let me know. If you decide not to participate, follow the directions in the email and get your money back!

    July 9, 2013

    • Liz

      Or at least try to get your money back. I cannot speak for the organization.

      July 9, 2013

    • Jerilyn S S.

      The worst part about the change in time and location is that YOU cant make it. :(

      July 9, 2013

  • Jason T.

    I am thinking refunds at this point. I would like to do it still but three venue changes suggests poorly run Zombie Organization who probably will not refund or reduce. We paid including 5$ donations apiece $[masked] to do this 3miles from house now just over 100miles and No free pancakes

    July 9, 2013

    • Jerilyn S S.

      I paid 87 bucks myself! I dont like it either. But I really want to do this so i'm still going. I'm going to try and get a room the night before. The company said they we will get free parking(10.00) plus a 20 dollar voucher to spend at the end of our race. I'm willing to drive if people want to carpool.

    This is now happening on Saturday September 7th at Liquid Planet Water Park in Candia, New Hampshire.

    I wanted to tell all the un-infected RI hikers that parking is free at our place in Rehoboth its a 3 mile walk to the event site. Official event parking is $ 10.00 per car and that spot is about 8 miles from the event. We can have a tent event the night before too ! Probably do a pancake party in the garage in morning. Let me hear thoughts and ideas as we are registered and committed to event.

    July 1, 2013

    • Jason T.

  • Liz

    No, I'm serious this time! Think Flag Football RIHC vs. Zombies! We're gonna kick butt! How 'bout this?... what happens if we have no brains to begin with.....

    January 28, 2013

    • Jerilyn S S.

      Im with you girlfriend! I can kick butt, yes indeedy! No one is gettin my brains cause I hid them in my thick head.

    • Bob T.

      Just flashing that rapier wit around , aren't you?

      January 28, 2013

  • Jerilyn S S.

    Are you fooling around or do we really wear flags and run? Do we wear sneakers instead of hiking boots? And do they only eat our brains? ;) Suppose we are running low on brains, might they go for the heart too?

    January 28, 2013

    • Bob T.

      Yes, they will go for the heart. But only it you are wearing it on your sleeve.

      January 28, 2013

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
