What is Run For Your Lives?

This is the race that gives you a real reason to train. Run, walk or crawl 2,5 (children) or 5,5 – 6,5 km (adult) through a zombie apocalyptic world.

The goal is to avoid the zombies that are trying to take your 3 lives that are attached to ribbons in a belt around your waist. Forget the best time, in this race the smartest way and tactics counts the most . Perhaps sacrifice a friend for a moment’s respite.

Your unpleasant journey will take you through a variety of scenes taken directly from hollywood zombie themes. Square filled with tanks, quarantinezones and malls. All seasoned with zombies and special effects.
