PackTowl® Sponsors Run for Your Lives – The Original Zombie 5K Obstacle Course Race


PackTowl®, the market leader in lightweight, packable, and highly absorbent towels, announced today its official Wash Zone sponsorship of Run for Your Lives, the original 5K zombie obstacle course. The Seattle-area race takes place in Olympia, WA on August 24, 2013.

Like other obstacle races, runners navigate through various terrain and physically challenging obstacles. Unlike traditional races, challenges include dodging professionally made-up zombies, who roam the course as chasers, crawlers or stalkers, trying to grab flags from the runners’ belts. Working as a team, each heat of participants will need to climb, crawl, duck, and dive their way to the finish line.

All race participants walk through the Wash Zone after completing the mud- and obstacle-filled course. Participants who “survived” will receive a small Personal PackTowl. Those who didn’t survive will have the chance to win a towel at the PackTowl booth at the Wash Zone or at the Apocalypse Party. The party, which will occur during and after the race, will feature a DJ, beer, food, vendors, and games.
