Run For Your Lives 5k and Obstacle Course

In Random Rants, Uncategorized by StacyLeave a Comment

Do you want to be chased by zombies in hopes you make it to the safe zone? If so, this 5k and obstacle course might be what you’re looking for. Test yourself and see if you have what it takes to outrun and outsmart the undead.

The course includes obstacles such as the gruesome blood pit, the smoke house which will consist of darkness, electric shocks and of course, smoke, and lastly, the maze. If you think you can run for your life, this might slow you down a bit while zombie lurk in the corners of this obstacle waiting for their next meal.

Unfortunately, Michigan won’t be hosting one this time around but that doesn’t mean you can’t travel a few hours away to Chicago, who is set to host their run September 21, 2013! It would be well worth it, especially if you’re looking for a different kind of 5k that doesn’t include being sprayed with different colored powders – not that there’s anything wrong with that.

If you’re interested in running in this special kind of 5k, it’ll cost ya, but some of the most awesome things do. Chicago’s race registration is still open if you’re from Detroit and looking to stay somewhat local. If you want to travel out further, check out the website for other locations (link will be provided below).
