Run, Zombies! (or is it Run Zombies!)

Zombie movies and TV shows have had a big resurgence over the past several years. Even the undergrad students here at UF have actually been playing regular games of "Humans versus Zombies" where they run around campus and the humans defend themselves with Nerf guns and balled-up socks. Now though, the running community seems to have caught the zombie virus.

I just heard about "Run For Your Lives",  a new race series which pits runners versus the undead in a 5K obstacle course race. Runners wear a "life belt" with flags that the zombies will be trying to steal. In order to be eligible for awards, you have to complete all the obstacles and cross the finish with at least one life flag remaining. Sounds awesome and would love for one to show up near my hometown!
