When in Manila and you want to try a UNIQUE kind of exercise, how about try exercising by RUNNING FOR YOUR LIFE in Outbreak Manila Zombie Run!
Outbreak Manila Zombie Run: The ZOMBIES are coming!
What do your hamstrings and your survival skills have in common? To most people, there is no connection. But if you are running in a zombie-infested obstacle course, then it makes perfect sense.
Start flexing those muscles and start watching zombie flick re-runs. In four days, 5,000 people will gather at Outbreak Manila to race against time, terrain, and zombies. The race to survive starts at 5:30am on Saturday, April 14, 2012 in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
Outbreak Manila Zombie Run
The Outbreak is out of control! Congratulations to those who have already secured very limited slots. You guys are now officially zombie bait.
So what are your odds of surviving a zombie apocalypse? It depends on how fast you can run a 5-kilometer course. Angelo Cruz of RE-CREATE Events says, “You don’t have to be the fastest runner. You just have to be faster than the one running beside you. Outbreak Manila takes inspiration from Run For Your Lives in the United States. Each runner will have a belt with 3 flags representing a life. Zombies on the course will be trying to grab these flags. So a runner needs to get to the finish line fast with at least one flag intact”.
Outbreak Manila is a no-contact survival run where zombies are not allowed to touch runners, and likewise, runners are not allowed to hurt any zombies during the course. It’s a beyond-normal take on the popularity of fun runs, and the response so far has been no less than infectious.
