The Sunday race will bring the Apocalypse tour to its final chapter. For the obstacle course, solo participants and teams will be the  “survivor” or “zombie.”

The Sunday event, which will be held at Long Island, will also have an obstacle course for 13 and under. Prior to the course, there will be a 2.5-kilometer walk to the Long Island event from the Asahi Ballfield.
