PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020KDKA) – Do you like 5K’s? Do you like not being turned into a zombie? Or, have you ever wanted the thrill of escaping from prison?

Two unique 5K runs are coming to Pittsburgh in September, and you have a chance to run these obstacle courses, or volunteer to be the guys that try to stop the runners.

“Run For Your Lives” is a 5K obstacle course where you are running through an apocalyptic world where zombie volunteers try to stop you by “zombifying” you before you finish the challenging run.

“Fugitive Mud Run” is a 5K obstacle course where you are trying to escape from jail as volunteers posed as prison guards and inmates try to stop you.

KDKA-AM’s John Shumway talks to organizers of both races to find out how they work and how you can get involved.
