name is Jessica and I work for a marketing agency representing a
first-of-its-kind adventure race called Run for Your Lives.
creators of Run For Your Lives are on a mission to take the adventure race
trend to the next level by adding a unique element to the run – zombies.
only will participants have to navigate a series of 12 obstacles on our 5K
course, they’ll have to make their way to the finish line while avoiding
zombies who are out for their lifelines (in the form of flags attached by a
flag belt all participants will wear).
inaugural event is taking place in Darlington, MD (about an hour north of
Baltimore and an hour and a half south of Philly) on October 22, 2011 and will
be spreading nationwide next year.
the race, the top runners will be awarded prizes and participants will receive
medals to signify their survival (or zombie transformation). We’ll also be
hosting the Apocalypse Party, which will consist of live music, celebrity
appearances, food and (adult) beverages, an awards ceremony, and much more.
