Warrior Dash, but with brain-eating zombie twist. Run For Your Lives will be bringing the first zombie-themed obstacle course to the Mid-Atlantic region on October 22.
Like many obstacle course races, there will be wave starts and you will have twelve obstacles to overcome. Twelve obstacles and the undead. Out on the course zombies will be wandering about looking to grab race-issued flags from participants. Sort of like flag football, but instead of 100 yards, you need to travel 5,000 meters. And instead of undersized linebackers, you're trying to avoid flesh-starved zombies.
At the end, you will be rewarded with a medal recognizing either your completion of the course or zombie transformation, and the top three finishers overall, and in each age group will receive awards and be invited back to be lead zombies at the next race.
Also, if running from zombies is not your thing, you can purchase the Apocalypse Pass that gets you entrance to the finish line celebration where there will be eight bands playing (not all at once), vendors, food
For those of you who live in other parts of the country, don't despair. Run For Your Lives will be spreading (as is the nature of the zombie apocalypses) in 2012.
