Besides my friend and I getting lost going to Nuvali and getting there 10 minutes before our wave, the run was awesome :) It’s just surprising how the sun can be blazing hot at 7:15 am – the latest time in the morning I ran outside. However, I still feel bad about the zombies, they were chasing humans since 5:30am and had to stay until 11:30am for the last wave, no water and under the hot sun (that’s how it looked like). They are volunteers, but I do hope they were compensated for their work. I commend them, even if they tried to “kill” me during the race.
Here’s a link to the event’s website to give you an idea what the whole thing was all about – http://outbreakmanila.com/index.html
Now here are photos I was able to take before gun start and after I crossed the finish line . I should’ve taken photos while on the race itself, but I thought “living” was more important.
All in all it was an interesting experience. A lot of firsts for me: First run starting when the sun is already up and about (which made me 2-3 shades darker I think), first trail run, and first time being chased by the undead.
I survived. Now let’s see how I will do next year :)
