Obstacles

No one said running for your lives was going to be easy. Standing in between you and the Safe Zone are a series of man-made and natural obstacles that will be physically challenging, but not impossible. Here’s a sneak peek at what you might be facing out there.

  • Laser Grid

    Like the memorable scene in Resident Evil, test your agility and endurance with this 20 metres long obstacle. It’s a slice of life.

  • Blood Pit

    Hate to be in the middle of a bloodbath? You’re gonna have to suck it up (and hold your breath) for this water-based obstacle. Might do you more good than harm, knowing Zombies can’t swim.

  • Limb by Limb

    Disguise as the undead by learning to move like one. Get on your hands and knees for this back-breaking obstacle. We promise, there will be light at the end of the web-like tunnel.

  • The Highrise

    Getting to higher grounds is the best way to spot a Zombie horde afar. Climb high! But watch out for those occasional kicks from the Survivor scrambling above you.

  • Holey Trap

    Climb over, and conquer this heap of rubber stacked at varying heights. Sounds easy enough? Tell that to your tired, sore muscles after intense Zombie escapes.

  • The Smokehouse

    Salmon and duck have one thing in common, they taste great smoked! Get tastier by entering this obstacle that will test your guts and vision. Don’t get all blurry-eyed though when you become a priority target to the Zombies.

  • Inverted Guillotine

    Being chased by Zombies? Get out of the pickle by hurdling over this obstacle, and you might just be able to use it to keep them at bay. Just be careful of where you put your hands. It can get quite dicey.

  • Lurker’s Nest

    Some say the greatest fear is not knowing what lies around the corner. We say an even greater fear is not knowing what lies around the corner in Lurker’s Nest. Enter at your own risk.

Survivor's Supplies

This is what you’re running for. Get to the Safe Zone and retrieve the supplies. Every Survivor (alive or dead) will receive an exclusive Survivor's Supply Package for completing the Run For Your Lives event:

  • Run For Your Lives Event Tee
  • Run For Your Lives Event Bag
  • Survivor's Medal*
  • Special Premiums from our Sponsors

* Finish with at least 1 life to earn the Survivor's Medal. Otherwise, you get the Infected Medal.

Important Information

Run For Your Lives is slightly different from the usual organised marathons and races. Here are some important things to take note of when coming for the event.

  • What To Bring

    Going to a Run For Your Lives event is like going to a water theme park for Survivors. You will get wet and dirty but you'll have lots of fun in the process. Here’s a list of things to bring for the event.

    • Your confirmation slip
    • Identification (NRIC, Passport etc.)
    • A change of clothing
    • A change of footwear
    • A towel (rinse facilities are available onsite)
    • Money for food and drinks

    Come dressed to impress and stand a chance to win exciting prizes in our Best Dressed Competition.

  • Where To Go

    Unlike a regular running event, there is no separate day to collect your Race Pack. You will head down to the Registration counter on event day itself, to collect your Race Pack which consists of the following items:

    • A Race Bib with safety pins
    • A Life Belt with three red flags
    • ID Tag

    Fasten the Race Bib to the front of your running attire, wear the Life Belt across your waist with the three life flags attached, finally head to the start pen and begin your adventure!

Rules for Survivors

Just because you are desperately running to survive doesn’t mean that there are no boundaries. Please follow these rules or risk getting literally annihilated from the race.

Do Don't
icon_lifetotal Wear your lifebelt on your waist, with one flag on the left and right each, and the last flag on the back. Life flags are to be clearly visible to Course Officials and Zombies. icon_stealing In the event all flags have been taken from you, you are NOT automatically transformed into a Zombie. You may NOT take another Survivor’s flags or pick up flags off the ground.
icon_intoxicated Do arrive sober. Visibly intoxicated participants will not be allowed to participate in the race. No drugs, outside alcohol, or outside food/beverages are permitted. icon_weapon Do NOT bring weapons, mock weapons, wheel-run objects of transport or any kind of pets to the event premises.

Those in violation of this rule will be automatically disqualified and potentially escorted off of the grounds, without refund.
