Many fit folks add a little motivation to their workout, whether it's a treat at the end of the session, or a day off between stretches of workouts. This weekend, you can get a little post-apocalyptic training that's sure to make you move quicker. On Saturday, November 2, Genesee Valley Park (1000 E. River Road) will host the rUNDEAD 5K trail run, where zombies are the obstacles.
Each runner will start off with a flag belt and three flags, which represent your lifelines. Zombies throughout the course will attempt to take these, one at a time. If you lose all three, you're "dead," and the zombies have won. This is not a timed race — you only need to cross the finish line with one flag to receive a survivor medal.
Registration begins at 8 a.m., and the race commences at 10 a.m., sharp, with post-race festivities and awards taking place 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Not a runner, but still want to help the event's beneficiary, the Special Olympics? Get in on the fun by signing up to be a zombie. Pre-register for $30 (runners & zombies). Every participant will receive an official rUNDEAD T-shirt.
