Photo of the Day: Zombies Attack Royal Air Force Lakenheath, No Survivors!

ROYAL AIR FORCE LAKENHEATH, England — Members of the 48th Security Forces Squadron cordon off a safe haven for runners during the RAF Lakenheath Survival Challenge Oct. 19, 2012. More than 100 base personnel volunteered to be undead during the run hosted by Lib 5/6, RAF Lakenheath’s E-5 and E-6 private organization. Runners were released in groups of 8 to 15 through a base-wide course filled with peril. Their objective was to finish the run with at least one of their three “lives” remaining. The zombies were classed by speed; “crawlers” were slow, “lurchers” were a medium speed and “the infected” were sprinters. The event mixed fun and fitness with the spirit of Halloween.
