Tomorrow, @TheWelshWookie and I are running the Zombie Night Run UK.
This is our first obstacle race, and I’m both excited and nervous about it!
The run is set in woodland in Helensburgh, and we’ve been told to be prepared for water, bogs and obstacles 😮
It’s an 8K run, and the first 3K is uphill, so I’m not going to even think about, or worry about time. Hills are all relative.
We could choose whether we want to run as ‘survivors’ or ‘zombies’: we’ve signed up as zombies, as I’m not sure I could cope with the thought of being chased through a dark forest at night! The race kicks off at dusk, so around 5.30pm. The survivors set off with a 5 minute head start and us zombies need to chase the survivors, and attempt to cross the finish line with a ‘life tag’ from a survivor.
I’ll be happy just to finish at all! 😉
Fancy dress is encouraged, so I’m running as a zombie doctor, and @TheWelshWookie is running as a zombie chef. My sis-in-law, Janice, is doing our make up for us, otherwise we’d end up looking like a couple of crazy clowns if I did it!
I’ll post pics….. if I dare!
