The Zombie Mud Run is probably the “funnest” event on the planet. I know, because that’s what their home page says. With a bold statement like that, – so epic that only a made up word can describe it – how can you afford to miss out on this unforgettable adventure?
Adventure Showreel 2013
The Zombie Mud Run is a Post-Apocalyptic 5K obstacle run filled with – yep, you guessed it – zombies and mud. Come join the adventure, whether you’re an avid runner or an avid couch potato by the name of Joe Shmoe.
Don’t be fooled though. It won’t be a leisurely jog through the park. The adventure racecourse is complete with Army boot camp like obstacles that will definitely test your strength, endurance and bravery. Travel through mud, climb some walls and run like you’ve never run before. Expect to have a “heart pounding adrenaline producing” experience in the process.
But first, you have to decide: are you Team Human or Team Zombie? What’s unique about this run (besides um…the zombies) is the fact that you have the option of deciding whether or not to save humanity or…eat it. If you choose to be a zombie, your objective is to infect the humans with your virus by eating their brains, heart and entrails, which are represented by 3 flags on a belt (yeah, let’s stick with the flags). After you finish being a zombie, you can also participate in the race as a human.
Your mission as a human is to get as many of your fellow humans through the mud and to the Green Zone as possible (there’s food, water, and beer there – you know, all the essentials!). If you finish the race with one or more flags, you survive…
Well, for now at least.
I’m a firm believer that the zombie apocalypse is coming soon. If you join the run/adventure, take comfort in the fact that you’ll at least be more prepared than Joe Shmoe. Poor Joe. He never stood a chance.
* Check out when future runs – or outbreaks – are coming to a city near you. But exercise caution: around the world, zombies are hungry. The living dead has officially resurrected.
