Zombie runs are really starting to become a thing. Eventually, one would hope, they will replace the boring, "regular" variety completely. The always awesome Darien Lake will have one of it's own now, promoting fitness and the undead in one fell swoop as part of it's annual Fright Fest.
Like most other zombie runs, each runner will be given three flags, representing life. If a zombie snags all of your flags, then you're no longer alive. You didn't have what it takes. But, if you make it to the end, then you're at least a little prepared for the real thing. Of course, if the real thing does happen, the zombies won't be interested in flags that you have tucked in to your running shorts. Still, it's something.
You can sign up to be a runner or a zombie; the hunted or the hunter. Some tend to think you get more out of it by being victorious if you survive. Then again, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
This happens on September 28th so sign up here. Enjoy and don't panic. Or, run and scream, whatever's fun for you.
