I didn’t think it was possible, but the scene at this race was even more absurd and absolutely ridiculous than it was at the Baltimore race. You can see some of my shots from that race here.
I’m amazed at how much people love to take on the zombie persona, and at how well some of them do it. I don’t think I’d ever volunteer to get covered in fake blood and sit in the woods screaming at people for the entire day, but clearly there’s some appeal there that I’m missing out on.
Nevertheless, I was highly entertained all day, and hundreds of zombies and 10,000 racers make for some good photography. Take a look at this photo gallery on the Run For Your Lives Facebook page to see my whole take from the day. It’s got over 1,000 “likes” and hundreds of comments from zombies and runners alike.
Here were some that I enjoyed. As always, click to enlarge for the full effect. I’m still thinking about it, but the first photo here might have quickly become one of my all-time favorites.
