The Running Dead – Zombie 5K (Salem, MA September 29th 2012)
Are you tired of doing the same old 5K race? Ever imagined what a zombie Apocalypse would be like? What if i told you there was a race that could combine the two! Gym Flow 100 is proud to announce that we are partnering with The Running Dead – Zombie 5K to help raise money for the NSMC Cancer Center in Salem, MA. Basically what you have here is runners trying to complete a 5K course, with a ton of zombies lurking behind trees, rocks and bushes, that are waiting to attack. A zombie eats a runner’s “brains” by grabbing flags on their belts. Part haunt, part 5K run, this ”zombie-infested 5K obstacle course race” puts a twist to a standard race. Runners will wear “health flags” on a belt around their waists, and as they navigate through the obstacle course, the zombies will try to grab the flags. Lose your flags, and you’re considered “dead.” Simply enough right? The event will take place in Gallows Hill Park in Salem, MA 01970 on September 29th at 630pm. Registration links are listed below.
So you want to be a zombie… here’s your chance to not only menace, but to catch and ‘kill’ delicious victims. All runners will be wearing flag belts, like you see in flag football, which represents the runner’s life. You, the zombie, try to ‘kill/devour’ runners by grabbing flags off their belts. Once a runner looses all of their flags, they’re ‘dead’. Zombies should ONLY grab flags, do not push, punch, trip, or otherwise touch the runners themselves, you’re only interested in their yummy flags. There will be ‘slow zombies’ who try to grab runners as they go by, and ‘fast zombies’ who can chase after runners.
