There are a number of ways to try to motivate yourself to get off the sofa and spend more time doing sports. For instance, there’s an app for zombie movie and games fans that mimics the sounds of zombies getting close on your heels when you’re not moving fast enough. But on a nice sunny day, that audio experience might fall a little short of the motivation you need.
5K Zombie Adventure Race
That’s why an American organization has come up with a more completely immersive zombie chase experience: Run For Your Lives. It’s a 5K obstacle course during which runners are equipped with a belt with red flags. Those are your lives. During the race, zombies will crawl out of the mud, jump out from behind trees, or otherwise leap at you to tear off those flags. Lose all your flags and you lose the game. And since participation is such a zombie run isn’t cheap ($87 – R665, including the zombie afterparty) lasting as long as possible is enough motivation to keep running.
Of course, if you’d rather stay on the sofa than be covered in mud, “zombie guts … and other apocalyptic liquids” (and some of the participants do come out muddy enough to require lengthy use of the “decontamination zone”), how about just enjoying one or more of our almost 80 zombie games at Games.co.za!
