Guess what time it is if you’re in the Tampa area? 5K Zombie Run time! (every time I use the word time without numbers Hammer Time comes unbidden into my mind, which is both sad and awesome.)
I did this run last year and the year before, and both times the only thing I had to complain about was that I immediately wanted to do it again. Badly. February 28th the zombies will be coming back to the Tampa area, and you know I will be there!
This time is a little different, because this time I was given an entry to run and an entry to give away for the run. Lucky me, lucky you! If you’re in the Tampa area anyways.
Have you ever run a zombie run? Long story short, you can run as a human OR as a zombie, either way you know it’ll be fun. Even if you DON’T live. Which I haven’t yet.
If you are a runner you get 3 flags (like in flag football) on a belt and the goal is to get to the end of the 5K with at least one flag left. Lost all your flags? You can pick up extras in the safe zones. Even if you lose those too you go home with a t-shirt and an awesome medal so really it’s a win/win situation!
They’re also having a costume contest, spectators are free, and there will be free photos after the race as well. Yay! They even have free gear check, which I think ALL runs should have, but they don’t always. Oh, and don’t forget the “post-race Apocalypse party complete with music, food, great vendors and a fun atmosphere.”
