Have you been suffering from boredom? Are you bogged down by ordinary life? Would you die to snag a little excitement?
If the answer to any of the above questions is ‘yes,’ I’ve know of an event with your fang marks written all over it.
The Zombie 5 K features wooded trails, murky swamps and adrenaline-spiking obstacles, all of which you navigate while being chased by flesh-starved Zombies. You can embark on this adventure at Little Everglades Ranch (17951 Hamilton Rd., Dade City, Fla., 33523) Dec. 22, 2012.
Be Zombie Bait
Being bait means being a runner. You’ll start with three flags, each representing a "life." Cross the finish line with at least one flag intact to secure bragging rights among all of your buddies.
Be a Zombie
If you prefer to hunt instead of being hunted, become a member of the Zombie Horde. You’ll adorn yourself in flesh-eating fashion – compliments of the event's expert make-up team or by using your own devices – and stalk runners in one-hour shifts. You’ll be eligible to run the course once you’ve fulfilled your deadly duty.
All registrants receive T-shirts with optional blood spatters, finisher's medal and entry to the post-race Apocalypse party, a celebration complete with live music, food and free beer.
It turns out even zombies have a heart. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Moffitt Foundation of Tampa Bay and the Shriners Hospital for Children.
Sounds like a killer event to me!
