Running the same old routes can get tiring after a while, which is why I think this race looks awesome. If I still lived in the Northeast I'd be in!
From the race website:
Protect your brain and run for your life. This is one race where your legs giving out are the least of your problems. Run For Your Lives is a first-of-its-kind event, one part 5K, one part obstacle course, one part escaping the clutches of zombies — and all parts awesome.
