Outbreak BGC (July 28) will be a shot at redemption for many who didn’t survive the first Outbreak at Nuvali, Laguna. However, there is nothing like success during the first try. Here are some tips to help new runners get a triumphant ending.

TIP #1: The organizers advocate simply running instead of thinking. This may be good advice, but a little thinking won’t hurt your chances of survival.  Analyze the movements of the zombies in front of you and you’ll find a way to evade their attacks.

TIP #2: Wait for other runners and then run. This is not a time to be a hero, everyone. This is a time to survive. When the zombies are preoccupied and distracted, take the chance to get out of the encounter unscathed.

TIP #3: The easy path is not always the easiest. When faced with the choice, take the hard path to take advantage of all the crazy runners taking it as well. More people means more distractions for our zombie friends and less attention towards you (Please see TIP #2).

TIP #4: Come to the race with... clean ears? Yes, clean those ears! Those dark areas near the tracks are your enemies. You never know what are lurking behind them so better listen, listen and listen.

TIP #5: Before throwing yourself into the fray, be resourceful and make it hard for the zombies to get your precious lives by adjusting your flag belt depending on which side they will reach out from. Don't put them near sensitive body parts though, that would be cheating!

TIP #6: Work out and get fit before joining. I cannot emphasize this enough. Unless you want to end up fainting and getting aired on national television, you must heed this advice.

TIP #7: Have a good night’s sleep before running. Do not be cocky and think you can just wing this type of event. If the unfortunate day comes and real zombies come out to get you, you wouldn’t like to be caught unprepared, right?

That’s it, folks! Always remember that outrunning the living dead is not the easiest of tasks, but it CAN be done.

See you at the finish line!
