Escape the Chase
Watching tons of horror movies isn't a waste of time—it's prep for Escape the Chase, a mud-soaked, obstacle-studded 5K whose participants live by zombie apocalypse rules: run as fast as you can, don't worry about getting dirty, and hold onto your brains.
In this case, though, brains are "lifelines," or symbolic ribbons. Racers have to finish with at least one to be considered apocalypse survivors, and at least nine to be legally considered a cat. Lifelines are heavily contested, though; roaring, zombie-costumed opponents constantly try to snag them as racers clamber over obstacles, slog through mud, and occasionally even swim out of harm's way.
