Race The Dead 2013

Sentosa island was infested with zombies last weekend. No, this is not the start of the zombie apocalypse. This is Race The Dead, Singapore’s first ever 5km zombie run.

The idea is simple. Runners wear 2 life flag on the sides of their waist and run 5km filled with obstacles and clusters of life flag grabbing zombies. The objective is to get to the quarantine zone at the end point with at least 1 life flag intact.

It is actually more of a fun run rather than a competitive one. You need to strategise and work as a team with other runners to survive this race. The chances of surviving when you run in large group is much higher. Remember, during a zombie apocalypse, you don’t need to be the fastest runner. You just need to run faster than the last guy.

The zombies also learnt that their chances of capturing the life flag is higher if the stay close to each other.

These are not the Walkers from The Walking Dead. The zombie in Race The Dead can run pretty fast.

Maybe you’ll have higher chance of survival if your teammate is Spiderman. Wait… what?!?! Spiderman took part in Race The Dead too? Haha.

Just look at the amount of life flag taken away by this zombie. And this is not the most kill for the day.

It is not easy being a zombie. It takes almost an hour for them to transform from normal human beings to a zombie, thanks to the help of professional make up artist.

And some look too good to be zombie. I don’t mind being bitten by her.

And this got to be the most creepy zombie for the day. Do we really have to run pass her?

Besides the zombies, there are obstacles that the survivors need to overcome.

And it doesn’t matter if you are a zombie, survival or infected. End of the day, everybody had fun.

    That looked like an awesome time. I’ve been wanting to do a zombie run to see how I would stack up against the competition. I don’t have much time on my hands though.

    Nice post,
