My Zombie Moment – Photo by Zeus Martinez
Outbreak Manila has changed the running scene since it started its first outbreak in April 2012 in Nuvali. I’ve started as a runner in the first outbreak and eventually got turned when I lost all my life flags in Nuvali. I’ve spent my last two outbreaks as a member of the undead and so I went on to get to know and write about the different zombies and their backstory. It’s time to wrap up 2012 Zombie Journals!!!
Which outbreak is your favorite and who’s your favorite zombies?
The rough and steep trails of Nuvali and the scorching heat of the sun had been the obstacle that helped zombies terrify over 5,000 participants running for their life. The first outbreak definitely made an impact and whether you’ve finished this one dead or alive, you definitely had a terrifying time trying to survive the outbreak.
Bonifacio Global City has been a haven for runners and its well paved roads added traction to runners in this area. Unfortunate for the the more than 7,000 runners who joined, they met a faster breed of runners which not even the rain was able to stop in the dark of the night. The runners crossing sign was abruptly changed to runners screaming.
There’s just a thing about roller coaster rides and zombie outbreaks as they give you jumps in heartbeat like no other. So when the zombie outbreak reached a theme park, over 9,ooo runners were treated to an exhilarating ride to survival. The Magic and the Nightmare all in one place in All Hallow’s Eve.
