Zombie Run

I posted a review of Jennifer Hillier's Creep at My Alternate Reality.  Go check it out. 

No quiz this week, but I have a picture category coming up that should be fun. 

On to the Zombie Run.  On October 22, 2011 in Baltimore, zombies will attack.  You must survive the zombie apocolypse by successfully navigating this 5k obstacle course populated with zombies that would love nothing more than to sample your flesh.  Upon completion you can find other survivors and start rebuilding civilization with life music and food. 

Runners are given a flag belt, when all the flags are gone they are dead, or undead depending on how hungry the zombies were and if they were dismembered.  There will be health bonuses throughout the course that can help you to survive.  The course has twelve obstacles, I could tell you the obstacles but that wouldn't be fair.   The course is 5k-10k long and it is a race with prizes.  Yeah, 5-10k, so choose your path wisely. 

If you don't feel like running from zombie, but still want go to the after party, you can even buy a pass for that.  Looks like they are trying to get these things started around the country.  I think it is probably good training for the inevitable zombie outbreak.    So, be on the lookout for one near you.   It is a bit pricey for a race at $67 bucks but you do get a cool party afterwards and are chased by zombies in makeup during.

Love these things... I'm doing a zombie walk through the downtown sometime this month, but an obstacle course sounds more fun.

Sounds like good practice for the impending zombie infestation...
I hope nobody starts shooting!
