Run For Your Lives Zombie 5K #Giveaway!

Tuesday, August 27, 2013
A few weeks ago, I mentioned Gabe and I were going to participate in Run For Your Lives 5K, a first-of-its-kind obstacle course adventure run series where runners are chased by zombies! The zombies will try to end your life by grabbing flags from the runners’ flag belts. Similar to flag football, runners must reach the finish line with at least one flag to claim survival. At the end of the race, runners and spectators (who get in for free) celebrate survival or their zombie infection at the Apocalypse Party with music spun by the RFYL traveling DJ, entertainment, dance-offs, beer, food, and festivities!
First Place:
I have two free runner tickets to giveaway to any of the Run For Your Lives races throughout the US in 2013.  To enter, tell me why you want two free tickets to Run For Your Lives 5K in a comment below This part is mandatory and you can verify through the rafflecopter widget at the bottom of this post. 
Second Place:
I have two Run For Your Lives shirts to giveaway!

This run also works with charitable partner KennedyKrieger. A portion of ticket sales goes to raising awareness and funds supporting research and care for kids battling brain injuries, so if you don’t want to run for your life, you can Run For THEIR Lives. Check out their upcoming race locations, and if you want to register, you can use my special discount code ZPTD2 for 15% off any of the RFYL in the US.

  1. I'm kinda scared of Zombies..,..I think I I would run faster for sure!!! I'd love the chance for a PR from being scared!!! Ha!

  2. I want two free tickets because I'm a new runner (first 5k this year) and while I normally use beer or food as motivation, zombies will probably make me run faster!!

  3. My son is 'dying' to run this race. I'd love to run it with him!

  4. It sounds like an overall fun run I have been looking at it for while but wasn't sure I would have the funds to participate!

  5. I would love to win! I just did my first obstacle 5K and I had the time of my life! I'm really into Walking Dead and I just think this would be a total blast! :)

  6. I've lost 40 lbs since switching to an overall healthier lifestyle last summer, and I'd love to be able to complete an obstacle 5k. I think Run for Your Lives would be an awesome motivation!

  7. This is a really fun race! I did it in So Cal last October and made it through as a survivor. I would love tickets to this year's because they changed the medals and made 2 different ones. One for survived and one for infected. We all got the same last year. I am loving the way the infected medal looks and might just let those zombies have a little bite!

  8. This race is the reason I decided to start running. I had hoped to do to do the one earlier this year outside of Indy but had a family engagement. I had intended on running the Illinois race in September but after my wife and I found out we are expecting our first, we started budgeting funds to prepare for our baby and started making sacrifices which included my race budget. I had to chose between RFYL and my first half. I would love to not have to wait for next years RFYL schedule.

  9. I think....I would have a...panic attack. My adrenaline is crazy enough as it is when I work out...I can't even imagine! Have fun...I wonder which one of you will freak out the quickest/easiest? My bet is on Gabe ;)

  10. My husband and I were survivors in the 2011 and 2012 Run For Your Lives Maryland events but just haven't had the extra funds to register for 2013. We were really looking forwad to it because it's at a new location this year. We LOVE this race and the obstacles are insane! The zombies are the BEST PART!!!

  11. I want to participate because I set a goal this year to do 12 - 5k's and this would help me actually get past this goal. I'm on about 19 now, plus the Illinois race is really close to my house.

  12. A normal obstacle race is run with the challenge of completing the obstacles and the distance of the race but getting chased by a zombie adds a whole new element to the race. It's so awesome
