The 5k Zombie Run
In a zombie apocalypse, running might be the human race’s only hope. The organizers of The 5k Zombie Run understand this better than most—after all, their 5K obstacle course is infested with undead of its own. Each brave soul who decides to make a run for it begins the race with three health flags and tries to reach the finish line with at least one flag intact. That’s no easy task, of course. The course twists through approximately 3.1 miles of wooded trails and swamps, but the obstacles are kept as secret as Fort Knox’s collection of gold-plated presidential diaries. The zombies, on the other hand, are not: hordes of shambling ghouls haunt the course, pawing at health flags and attempting to infect runners before they can make it to safety. Those racers who finish with at least one flag live to brag another day. Zombies have their own contest: the ghoul with the best costume wins a prize, and all zombies can run the course themselves after fulfilling their undead duties.
