Run for your Freak’n Life
This is one race where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. “Run for your Freak’n Life” is a first-of-its-kind in New Zealand event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies – and all parts are awesome.
Before the race, you will be given a flag belt, just like the childhood game of flag football. These flags represent your vigour. The zombies want to take your flags and thus your vigour and maybe eat your brains. If you lose all your vigour flags, you die. And the zombies win. If you are unable to complete an obstacle, you need to surrender 1 of your flags.
There will be a start line, and a finish line, but what happens in between is up to you.
