Race the dead Singapore 2013 - Singapore's first 5K zombie run

This post has nothing to do with finance or investment. I'm doing this post to showcase the creativity of young people in Singapore. This is for the young and also the young at heart. The run was successfully completed last weekend 26 & 27 Oct 2013 at Sentosa.

An introduction of what Race the dead is all about?
Race the dead is Singapore's first 5km zombie run. Runners will cross obstacles and have zombies at every corner of the race track. This reminds me of the series walking dead which i watch every Saturday on channel 5. When i first saw this series on tv, i thought the story line was really interesting. I do like all these action/thriller themed shows.

There are similar themed movies for example the recent World War Z and the older 28 days later. The storyline was that the whole earth was infected by a virus which turned humans into zombies. The zombies will continue to attack humans and when they get bitten, they will turn into zombies too. There were only a few humans left in the world. They have to survive the virus.

In case you haven't watch World War Z, here's the trailer of it:

Back to Race the dead Singapore. As far as i know, this event was organized by a group of young people in their 20s. I do admire their courage to organize such a race as its not easy to put everything together. From their website, they had Singtel as their main sponsor and other sponsors too. 

This is the official trailer:

So how did the run go? The video below shows the highlights of the race. The make up is really good which made the zombies look really real. The obstacles were quite interesting. 

Watch the video to find out more:

Overall, Singapore has quite a number of creative races this year. Another one that i can recall is the colour race where racers were sprayed different colours during the run. At the end, many of them were painted in different colours.

Race the dead is definitely one of the most creative races ever organized in Singapore.

P.S: This is a side track to my usual heavy finance and investment posts. Hope you enjoyed it! :p
