The Running Dead: A Zombie Marathon

Posted by Neil McRobert on March 15, 2012 in Uncategorized tagged with

We’ve all got a zombie survival plan, and if you feel fit enough you can test yours out at a Run For Your Life zombie assault course. Jumping on the bandwagon of the recent vogue in recreational assault courses (tough mudder etc), RunForYourLife introduces the ravening undead into the mix. Sadly these events are only happening in the US right now but finger crossed the ‘virus’ may also go global.

This is an interesting addition to the ever-expanding zombie culture. The mob-scene that is an essential aspect of the zombie figure makes it particularly appropriate for an interactive event such as this. Participants can compete as either human escapees or as part of the zombie horde. I assume that the zombies in question will be more akin to the 28 Days Later ‘fast’ type than Romero’s lumbering dead.

If anyone based in the US feels like taking part then please let me know how it goes.
