The unpredictable Singapore weather decided to rain in the late afternoon and turn the event from a blood bath to mud bath. But hey, this makes the race more fun. After all, you can’t survive a zombie apocalypse without having mud all over you.

Like all zombie themed run, Run For Your Lives is not a competitive race. You need to strategise and work as a team with other runners to survive this race. The difficulty level for Run For Your Lives Asia – Singapore 2014 is significantly higher because of the narrower path.
Some survivors choose to run in big groups. After all, there’s a higher chance that you are not the slowest if there are more people running with you.
