'Run for Your Lives' is a 5 kilometre, charity obstacle run, taking place on October 22nd, 2011, in Darlington, Maryland (1 hour north of Baltimore, 1.5 hours south of Philadelphia). Maybe than doesn't sound very scary or horror-related and it wouldn't be, except that whilst you navigate these 12 man-made and natural challenges, you'll be chased by brain-chomping zombies! Obstacles include 'The Terrible Tubes', 'The Finish Line', and 'The Uphill Climb' and many more! You can even dress like a zombie if you want to; it will, no doubt, confuse the rotting shamblers into thinking you're one of them!
There are awards to be had by anyone who completes all of the obstacles, but if you're caught by a zombie (a flag will be taken from your flag belt) then you'll be listed as one of the undead. You can either buy a spectator 'Apocalypse Pass', which allows you to watch the race and attend the 'Apocalypse Party' afterwards, or alternatively, you can register as participant, which allows you to take part in the course and attend the after party for free. All participants must be over the age of 14, but children under that age are also welcome to spectate, with those under 10 being admitted for free.
A portion of all tickets sold will be donated to the American Red Cross and the zombie virus will be spreading to even more locations next year. Save your brains - RUN!
