Run For Your Lives @ SmSh Territory
You can now get a post-apocalyptic experience being a zombie or survivor in this wild 5-kilometer run. Dressed up runners will get released in shifts where the undead chase the living in an effort to catch their flags.

On every weekend from July 4 – 19, with 6 timeslots each day. Shuttle buses are available at Songjiang University Town Station, Line 9. Only tickets for “survivors” are left at 268 RMB.
