I did it last year and loved it. The only "training" I did was add distance to my running and I was fine.

I've know several people who've done it. My cousin and his brother in law did it in San Diego area. And several of my running friends have done. Two of my sisters are doing it this year. Personally, I don't care to get dirty or electrocuted when I run.
How about the zombie runs? I got a group of friends and neighbors to do it all together as a group.

i was just reading an article in womens health magazine about the risks of these races, they sure do sound like fun, just ask a few questions about the safety of the course, the article sure made me think twice about the safety of them. I probably would anyway lol but, just so your aware, there are some serious risks involved.
and if you do it, have fun! but dont end up paralyzed. :)
