Running in a Forest Filled with Zombies Seems Like a Lovely Route…
Want to add some fun to your racing routing? If so, you should check out the Run For Your Lives 5K event in Temecula this coming Halloween. This crazy 5k event not only has you running for a good time but also against crazy zombie participants.
The way it works is that you have a belt with flags that represent your health, and throughout the 5k run, you have to avoid these zombie trying to snag your flag off of you while overcoming obstacles that get in your way of the finish. The obstacles aren’t mandatory to complete, but by not completing them, you become ineligible for any prizes towards the end of the race. You do have the opportunity to fortify your health as the event planners placed hidden health “power ups” for runners to snag to boost their “health”.
To add to the fun, several routes were added to get to the finish line, so it’s up to you to choose the best route to get to your destination. Just be careful, because one route may lead to your brains getting eaten out of you or as their website says, “Choose wisely, or your 5k might turn into a 10k”. If you plan on participating, make sure to register quickly as the event is selling out quickly.
