Outbreak Manila: Run for Your Life 2012

The infection has arrived! Outbreak Manila has recently concluded the first RUN FOR YOUR LIFE zombie race in the country and it was a runaway success. It took place at the grounds of Nuvali, Sta. Rosa near the EVO Living Center on April 15, 2012.

Got Facebook? Check em out over here.

Cosplayer gals make excellent zeds, but they'll still eat your brains.

Inspired by Baltimore's Run For Your Lives, it was inevitable that a similar event would take place over here considering the sport's growing popularity.

Hey, everybody's doing this zombie craze thing, but fitness never goes outta style!

The Skinny:

  • 5 Kilometers of madness
  • Over 5000 participants
  • Challenging obstacles
  • 200+ volunteer zombies, and the funky Zombie Jackson
  • A long course that featured the full trail with less zombies (but still dangerous)
  • A horde course that was shorter but was extremely dangerous. Many deaths!
  • Same rules as Run For Your Lives with those 3 ribbons that represent your life

I'm all for these sort of events. Running is one of the best forms of exercise. Running away from the living dead will also save your life.

Zeds long to be CLOSE TO YOU

Outbreak Manila promises to infect the rest of the metro with more zombie runs for 2012.  I can't wait to join the next one. 

I wish they'd do an urban or nighttime run. That would be awesome.

Blood, sweat, and BRAINS.

Stay vigilant!
