    5K Obstacle Course Zombie Race - Baltimore, MD | Run For Your Lives


    HOW IT WORKS

    Run For Your Lives is an apocalyptic 5K obstacle race. But you’re not just running against the clock — you’re running from brain-hungry, virus-spreading, bloody zombies.

    BASIC SURVIVAL

    Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the overly intimidating game of flag football. These flags represent your health.
    The zombies want to take your flags and maybe eat your brains.
    If you lose all your health flags, you die. And the zombies win.
    Health bonuses will be hidden throughout the course. If you find one and carry it to the finish, it will save your life.

    WHAT YOU’RE UP AGAINST

    Throughout the 5K obstacle race, there will be 12 man-made and natural obstacles for you to complete. Runners may choose NOT to complete an obstacle, BUT any runner who skips an obstacle will not be eligible for prizes.
    There will be zombies. Their job is to chase you and eat you — but mainly go after your health, in the form of your flag belt. Avoid the zombies to keep your health flags.
    Use speed, strategy and your intact brains to make it to the FINISH LINE with at least ONE FLAG INTACT. If you finish with zero health flags, your time will be recorded, but you will not be eligible for awards.

    HOW YOU’LL DO IT

    There will be a start line, and a finish line, but what happens in between is up to you. There are multiple routes to reach the finish. Choose wisely, or your 5k might turn into a 10k.

    Whoever invented this is a genus! I wish they had something like this in SoCal. I would definitely participate. Maybe I should put on an event like this to raise money for Relay for Life...
