I am not a runner. I get tired quickly and I easily lose my breath. I remember back in college when we had to run around the UP oval 3 times for our finals in PE. Well, we walked most of the time and ended in 260+ position out of the 300 students who ran. So imagine my hesitation when a friend asked if I want to join a fun run..until I learned the details of Outbreak Manila.
Survival Mode: You will be given a life-representing flag belt (which will represent your health) in your runner's kit. Aside from getting out alive, you must protect your flags, a total of three, from the zombies scattered along the course. Don't worry though, one zombie can get only one flag from you. Also there will be obstacles in the course where you can choose to go through to attain additional health flags. Upon crossing the finish line, you need at least one health flag with you in order to be eligible for prizes. If, however, you lose all your health
flags, you are still allowed to finish the race and your time will be
recorded but you shall be considered "dead" and no longer be eligible
for prizes. Again, you will be considered dead and not a zombie. This means you are NOT to act like a zombie and start grabbing the flags of other runners.
It will be held in Nuvali, Sta. Rosa Laguna this April 14, 2012. Registration will start on March 2 at Toby's Sports Megamall, Mall of Asia and The Block and at RUNNR Alabang Town Center, Bonifacio High Street, and Trinoma. For 700 bucks you will get to run not only for your health but also for your life..oh and yeah, you will also get to run for (lots and lots of) fun.
