Running isn't everyone's exercise of choice. It can be difficult to get motivated to lace up and head out every day to run laps, not to mention if you live in an area with less than cooperative weather. You know what can get you running? Being chased. Specifically, being chased by zombies.
The official Biohazard (Resident Evil) Zombie Rush event on May 21 will put participants where the action is and get them motivated by included some flesh-hungry zombies.
The event will take place at the Ohi Racecourse in Shinagawa at 9:00 a.m. JST. Participants will be survivors of a zombie outbreak and wear a clear vest with pockets. The goal is to complete missions on the track without losing your vest to the zombies. Racers can also choose not to wear a vest and observe the event while going along the track, since the zombies only seek out individuals wearing the vest.
The track is two kilometers long and outfitted to resemble Raccoon City Police Department.
Special guests include comedian Hiroshi Shinagawa and idol group Kamen Joshi. Participants will get a special card, a baseball cap, and dog tags with their participation number and the date.
