After the marathon a couple of weeks ago. We have been sent more and more information through One PlayerDown users about other running events around the world.
There are some big differences with these events though as they are not your traditional long distance events i.e. one person against the clock and their mental strength to push past the notorious “wall”. These are much more social events.
They kick off this weekend with the Redbull Wings for Life world run
This event is unique as it is a coordinates run across the world, starting at the same time. There will be a car following the runners and as soon as you are overtaken by the car, your race is over.
There are already a few players from One Player Down attending this
Then comes the zombie run tour. As you might have guessed, there are a bunch of runners that are infected zombies and a bunch that are not infected…yet. The idea is that the runners not infected reach the finish line before the zombies infect them. More or less a massive game of tag for adults. This is a little bit in the vein of the revival of kickball and dodgeball.
Then there is a 5k run in New York, ending with a massive party. It is the Kaskade spark run
A great part of sport is getting fit but socializing makes it more fun and helps mental fitness as well.
Whatever sport you choose, enjoy it!
