So anyone that knows me, knows that I am drawn to strange things. Zombies in particular just fascinate me. Well today as I was browsing the internet, I came across this. There’s a company called Reed Street Productions that is putting on 5k obstacle course races across the country. The part that makes this interesting? Race contestants are not only running a race but they’re running from ZOMBIES. That is just about the coolest thing I’ve heard in awhile.
In the Run for Your Lives race, runners will navigate a series of 12 obstacles throughout a 5K course in an attempt to reach the finish line — all while avoiding zombies. At the end of this adventure race, you get to celebrate survival (or zombie transformation) with live entertainment and music, local celebrities, vendors, food, and of course, beer!
Atlanta is about the closest race for me to attend and it is happening March 3rd. Not quite sure I’d be able to get into shape enough to race this year but I just may need to go be a spectator and start training for next year-or, when the actual Zombie Apocalypses happens-whichever comes first.
