Date: 26 & 27 October 2013
Time: 8am - 8pm
Brace yourself for a 5K dash that will set your heart-racing faster than you can run. Standing in your way, every corner and every turn, will be hordes of zombies waiting to grab a hold of your beautiful faces to tear them open and consume what's beneath. The apocalypse is closer than you think, and if you think all you've got to be is fast, you've got another thing coming.
Runners will have to maneuver and traverse a string of obstacles that makes "challenging" sound like a walk in the park, at the same time having to dodge and outrun zombies awaiting their next meal.
Make your way to The Fort, the last remaining safe haven that is quarantined and kept safe from the zombie hordes. Armed military personnel will be waiting for you at the gates to ensure your survival, but getting there is the challenge.
Before it was known as Sentosa (isle of tranquility), the island had gone by another name that many have chosen to ignore or hush away, Pulau Belakang Mati (isle of death from behind).
There were many legends and myths surrounding the origin of that ominous name. One version stated that the island was once a place of piracy and bloodshed, and the victims of the murders still haunted that place. Another account revealed that the island was once a fishing village that had half its population wiped out by a viral outbreak. The bodies were never found, and the remaining population moved out of the island for fear of their lives.
Many conspiracy theorists believed that the authorities had a facility located below the island which housed the once missing bodies to determine the cause of death and develop the virus into an enhancement that they can use on living persons.
That did not turn out well.
At the start of the race, runners will be issued 2 red flags simulating their lives. The goal of the race is to reach the finish line with at least 1 red flag left to qualify for placing.
The entire course will be infested with at least a 100 zombies (based on intel) and runners are to avoid contact with them at all cost.
Expect obstacles along the way and take extra precaution clearing them, remember there's more than one way to die.
Need help surviving the race? Look out for the Mio TV Life Zone in the course, should you need to replenish a lost health flag.
Upon reaching the finish line, runners are required to move to the "Quarantine Area" for military personnels to determine if they are infection free.
Join other racers and the undead for a rocking good time after your run, as we line up an entire day of live performances and exciting activities.
This Halloween, brace yourself for a 5K dash that will set your heart-racing faster than you can run. Standing in your way, every corner and every turn, will be hordes of zombies waiting to grab a hold of your beautiful faces to tear them open and consume what's beneath. The apocalypse is closer than you think, and if you think all you've got to be is fast, you've got another thing coming.
