Although I post a decent amount of athletic themed posts, it takes quite a bit to get me to run. I absolutely hate it and much prefer a workout that doesn’t feel like a workout. The AV Club just posted an article about the upcoming Run for Your Lives zombie infested obstacle course and this event is definitely for someone like me, who needs a little motivation. Just see this video below and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
The “race” is June 2, 2012. Registration is now open. If you register by February 29, you’ll save a few bucks. It’s a pricey run at $67 but definitely unique and noteworthy. If you’d like to register as a zombie, it’s $25 (includes a variety of perks). There will also be an after party and camping is available. If you just can’t swing the registration fee but wish to participate, they are seeking volunteers for this event. Volunteers will receive free camping, snacks and water, free admittance to the Apocalypse Party and a Run for Your Lives volunteer t-shirt.
As a side note, the race takes place in Millville, MN, about an hour and a half southeast of the Twin Cities.
