Yes, more zombie news!
Albuquerque is holding its fourth annual Day of the Tread , which is a selection of bike rides and road races. There will be zombies on wheels and skeletons in sneakers, but it will have to go far to match the 1,500 participants in the Survive Norfolk zombie tag event. If you’ve never heard of zombie tag, here are the rules:
Survive Norfolk is a two-hand game of tag, featuring runners and zombies. Runners receive an armband at the starting point of the game, and are given a five minute head start before the zombies are unleashed. If a runner is tagged by a zombie, he/she becomes a zombie. Runners have two and a half hours to hit four checkpoints (at which agents will give them stamps) and reach the end location. “Bonus areas” are also included (in which the runners enter at their own risk to find Monitors will patrol the area to help and give direction. Only 1500 people can play (it’s first-com, first-served) and many armbands have already been reserved. The winners will include the First place finisher and the zombie with the most kills.
There’s also a zombie dance party and Zombie Karaoke. No doubt there will be countless renditions of Re: Your Brains .
