Run For Your Lives is a zombie-infested 5k adventure race that started in Baltimore in 2011, and has now expanded to over twenty locations across the United States this year. We had a great time at last year's Pittsburgh event and want Daily Dead readers to take part in a race of their own.

"Run for Your Lives takes participants through a series of 10 to 12 manmade and natural obstacles – including a blood pit, zombie-infested maze and smokehouse – over a 5K course, all while being chased by professionally made up zombies. Participants can sign up as a runner, zombie or both, or choose to stand on the sidelines as a spectator and watch participants run for their lives. The inaugural race, which launched in Darlington, Md. in 2011, attracted more than 10,000 participants and spectators. In 2012, the race invaded 12 U.S. cities and hosted more than 100,000 participants who tested their survival skills against the zombie apocalypse."
