A new kind of event - Run For Your Lives - is a 5km obstacle…
Over 10,000 people took part in the Run For Your Lives Zombie obstacle race in Massachusetts, USA. The 5K obstacle race featured man-made and natural obstacles along with throngs of zombies. Participants in the event were chased by zombies who were trying to catch them by stealing flags from their belts.
Participants tried to keep at least one health flag or to find a health pack to continue the race. One zombie was quoted as saying
“…I was getting a little scared at one point. There’s very much a fight-or-flight response that kicks in people when they start going. Everyone is just out to survive, even if it means running you over. So I tried to bond with my fellow zombies and just get through that…“
Run For Your Lives obstacle courses will be running across the U.S
