Zombie Race is a zombie-filled obstacle run. You will be running from virus-spreading, blood-hungry zombies. Runners will have to do everything they can to conquer all the obstacles and escape the zombies waiting to eat your brains.
Whether you have been transformed into a Zombie or are a Zombie Race Survivalist, you’ll be able to enjoy the Apocalypse Party. The party will have sizzling food, live entertainment, and of course beer.
Every gung ho zombie and their mother will be at this weekend-long event: zombie fanatics, military heroes, runners, bodybuilders, co-workers, friends, and families. It is a great way to test your athleticism and make new friends. Come and enjoy the race, beer, food, live entertainment, camping, etc…
When you arrive at the registration tent, you will be given a flag belt with three health flags on it. Wear it so that one is on each hip, and one is behind you.
Zombies will attempt to take your health flags and eat your brains. Each zombie may only take ONE health flag. Zombies cannot take your health flags if you are on, or in line for an obstacle. The obstacles are designed to help runners escape from the zombies’ grip.
Even if you are infected, you can still finish the race. You do not become a zombie if you loose all of your health flags, and cannot attack other runners. Doing so is a violation of the rules and will get you disqualified and asked to leave.
If you make it to the finish line with at least one health flag, you are a Zombie Race Survivalist. If you loose all of your health flags, the zombies win the race.
Do not hide the health flags under your clothes, or tuck them in in any way. This is cheating, and will get you disqualified.
I finished the “#High Rock Challenge” 7 miles in 1.37 minutes, thanks to my race partner Nicki. You know, The funny part about Staten island and anyone from Staten Island will verify on this( well a real islander), is that everyone knows each other or they know someone who knows you. Soooo if you are a jerk, people will know it. It turns out that I couldn’t get a partner for the race but I decided to do it anyway, and when i got there, Nicki was looking to run The race but she didn’t have a partner either! so we teamed up, while warming up for the race she told me about her dad, it turns out her dad is mike from @Staten island Kawasaki a friend of my and a great guy. Small world … right!, well, we got first place for our race. Thanks Nicki.
About the High Rock Challenge
Teams consisting of two must run together at all times and compete in mystery events, which are located throughout the approximately 10-K (and no longer than 13-K) course. Mystery events are cleverly designed and encourage teamwork as well as mental and physical acumen. Events are not revealed until race day when you’re on the course.
The High Rock Challenge remains Staten Island’s only adventure race; it attracts athletes of all stripes who turn out each April to test their physical and mental abilities, senses of humor and trail-running legs. The race course is almost entirely along the Greenbelt’s rugged trail system. Navigating your way, by following course markers, is considered part of the challenge.
Hundreds of spectators, volunteers and support staff cheer runners at central points along the route and at the finish line making this event popular with sponsors. All Greenbelt and NYARA races are professionally timed culminating in an awards ceremony. Refreshments and wicking tee shirts are provided for runners.
Southeastern Utah’s Corona Arch, a towering geological feature glorified last year on YouTube as the “World’s largest Rope Swing,” has claimed the life of a 22-year-old thrill seeker. Kyle Lee Stocking died Sunday while trying to swing from the 140-foot-high arch, which has experienced a surge in popularity during the past year because of YouTube videos and sharing of videos on social media.
Standing out is the “World’s Largest Rope Swing,” a video (posted above) that has garnered more than 17 million views since it was uploaded on Feb. 15, 2012. (A behind-the-scenes video from the same group garnered nearly 1 million views.)
Because of this popularity surge, the Salt Lake Tribune reports, the destination has come to be known as the “Granddaddy of All Cheap Thrills,” and that climbers recently adapted their gear specifically for swinging like a pendulum from the sandstone arch.
Lt. Kim Neil of the Grand County Sheriff’s Office told the Tribune that the length of rope used by Stocking was “miscalculated and when he swung under the arch, he struck the ground … receiving fatal injuries.”
Because of its popularity and the obvious danger factor, Corona Arch, which is located on state and federal land near Moab, has been made off-limits to commercial outfitters specializing in extreme rope-swinging.
However, it remains open to private individuals for hiking and climbing.
Stocking was with five friends at the time of his accident.
