Zombies Return to BGC
Lightning never strikes the same place twice but zombie outbreaks do after all the aimless wandering of zombies can lead the horde just about anywhere. The Outbreak returns in BGC and the general public is given an advance notice to prepare to be zombie bait as Outbreak Manila turns one. 22,000 came, screamed and had the thrill of their life in three installments of Outbreak Manila. Survival meant the participants going through narrow trails of Nuvali, rain-drenched slippery roads of BGC and the cobble-stoned paths at Enchanted Kingdom. The 4th installment is coming this 13th of April Twenty Thousand and Thirteen in the longest 5-kilometers anybody could have as the scream-fest goes on from start to finish with a myriad of flag-deprived zombies just awaiting for their meal.
Run for your life as the zombies just took over the top spot of the food chain. Organizer Angelo Cruz of Runtertainment Inc. says, “Our zombies have missed the screams of the runners. They are ready to chase and we can assure you–One year later, it will not be any easier”. The mechanics are simple start with three life flags and protect them and finish with at least one until the finish line to survive the outbreak. Easy, right? As long as you can run faster than the zombie-grabbing flags around the course. If all things, just hope there’s a much slower bait than you for the zombies to feast on. Survival comes in three letter words, R – U – N. Just to give the runners a better chance at survival, no form of physical contact and violence are allowed. So run as fast as you can, scream at the top of your lungs and protect those precious life flags as all runners with at least one life flag remaining gets an alive medal. Just in case, you won’t finish with a flag, don’t worry as everybody gets an Outbreak Manila Souvenir Shirt, Loot bags, bibs, 3 life flags and an incredibly good time dodging zombies all around the course. So, register now as slots are going as fast as hungry zombies eating brains.
