Zombie race in Barcelona
Do you dream about zombie apocalypses? Congratulations! Barcelona is being infested by the zombie hordes… and there’s only two possible options: run or join them!
Next Saturday June 9th, Runners vs. Zombies is coming to Barcelona to set up an authentic “Carnicería en Collserola” (Carnage in Collserola). Get ready for a 5 km race, full of obstacles, in an area plagued by zombies. You’ll need a decent strategy as well as legpower to be able to reach it to the finishing line alive…
If you want to participate in Runners vs. Zombies Barcelona, sign up on the official website and find out if you’re going to be a putrid hunter or rapid prey. Each one of the groups has its own pros and cons, but both promise to be incredibly fun.
Runners leave in turns. Each one is given a belt with three ribbons, each of which represents a life. Their objective is to race to be the first of their set, or at least to reach the finish line alive.
Zombies are grouped together in hordes, and their mission is to snatch as many lives as they can by ambushing runners. They should go properly dressed for the occasion, and with a layer of suppurating makeup. The zombie horde which manages to massacre the most runners conquers all. As we all know, zombies are unable to run, and, as strong as the zombie instincts are, no biting of runners is allowed!
After the zombie race in Barcelona, the fun will continue with various activities, which include make-up and special effects workshops, a zombie shooting gallery, music, videogames and much more. Run for your lives!
