Zombie 5k

By admin | In Competition, Events and Announcements, Running | on February 13, 2012

Today we have a guest post from Coach Jake about two subjects, near and dear to his heart, that fortunately will merge into one fantastic event:

Run For Your Lives!

On October 20, 2012 the zombie apocalypse is coming… in the form of a 5k obstacle race! Not only are you running for time, you are running from hungry zombies. Obviously I am fired up for this event because I am a zombie fanatic. So you all know that I will be at this event. Some details of the race are:

  • Each runner will be given a flag belt which represents health
  • The zombies are looking to steal your flags
  • iI all health flags are taken…you die and the stupid zombies win
  • Health bonuses will be hidden throughout the course. If a runner finds one and carries it to the finish, it will save your life.
  • There will be 12 man-made obstacles runners must compete in order to be eligible for prizes
  • There will be 2 types of zombies: stumblers (those who can only walk and not chase a runner) and chasers (those who can all out sprint and chase after a runner)

One thing to remember is that there is no physical contact (pulling, pushing, kicking, bat to the head) allowed between runners and zombies. Zombies are only allowed to go for flags. This, of course, will be the most difficult part for me to remember because all my life I’ve wanted to go “Hulk” on a zombie. I guess winning a prize is the next best thing for surviving a zombie apocalypse.

The race will be held in Vail Lake Village in South Temecula. Fees for runners are $77 now till August 28th, and $87 from August 29 until September 28th.  Unfortunately there is a spectator fee of $32.

So let’s try and get a group to represent Intrepid. I will definitely send a reminder about this awesome event as the date approaches.
