About 7,000 runners participated in a 5K race in the Philippines, along with about 300 “zombies.”

Runners in Manila were challenged in this particular race by the hundreds of zombies hidden along the route.

The zombies, intent on “eating brains,” were actors who attempted to chase after the runners and grab “health flags” from their waistbands.  If a runner lost all three flags, they would be out of the race.
