Running for your life

FIND out if you can outrun zombies in Outbreak Manila.

We’ve all had that conversation over bottles of beer or after a marathon of The Walking Dead—discussions of strategies on how to survive the swarm of flesh-eating zombies populating the city.

DO YOU have what it takes to survive a zombie apocalypse?

Are you going to hide, do some long-range shooting then make a run for it, or simply give in and become one of the undead?

Outbreak Manila dares you to find out if you can really survive a true-blue zombie apocalypse…up to five kilometers, that is.  The event is essentially a fun run, except there are zombies who are out to eat your brains (or in Outbreak Manila’s case, your health flags), and the 5K leg comes with obstacle courses as well as path choices a la Choose Your Own Adventure, e.g, take a longer path with less zombies or run through a shortcut with a horde of zombies waiting.   Prizes await the last human standing.

If you’ve boasted to your friends about your excellent survival skills, this is the time to put your money where your mouth is. Visit to find out if you can outrun zombies and be the last human alive in the zombie apocalypse happening soon.
