Run for your life! If you register for this zombie infested 5k race, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing. What a fantastic idea. I know a lot of runners, and a lot of zombie fans. How many are both?
When we ran a story about this event in 2011, the only upcoming location for the race was Baltimore, MD, but the “virus has spread” to 7 new locations in 2012.
The concept of zombies is an old one, but interest in them has increased exponentially in the last few years. I was never much of a zombie guy, but AMC’s The Walking Dead has piqued my interest over its first two seasons, and this new G.I.Joe Zombie Viper hasn’t hurt either.
Follow the folks behind the race on Twitter @runfromdead and please keep us posted if you or anyone you know participates in one of these events – we’d love to have you on our podcast for an interview.
