Think you have the ability to survive a zombie infested world? Find out for yourself at the Run For Your Lives 5K zombie filled obstacle course. It's going on now in select cities from Washington down to Florida. Here you can test your speed and whits against all types of zombies, from the slow Night of the Living Dead creepers to the 28 Days Later run your ass off killers.
At the start of the race all of the participants will be given a belt with a certain number of flags. Along the way you will encounter zombies that will be trying to take your flags away. If you lose all of your flags you are considered "dead". When you complete the course you are given a medal, either a survivor medal or a zombie medal, depending on living status. The real kicker is that when you cross the finish line "dead", you become a zombie and then try to take other people flags away. That being said, the longer it takes you to complete the course the more zombies you will have to contend with.
This event is as realist as it gets without actually being eaten by a real zombie. All zombies are instructed to grab flags and not chew your face off. In the unlikely even that someone does get hurt they do have medical personnel standing by.
If you think you have what it takes, find out for sure at the next event.
