Zombie Run 5-K scheduled for Oct. 31 at WCU

The Western Carolina University Student Physical Therapy Association will host the second annual Zombie Run 5-K Chase Race at 4 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 31.

The event will begin at a site near the WCU softball stadium.

Each runner will receive flags to wear during the race that zombies along the course will try to steal. Runners who make it to the finish line with at least one flag will be considered “Zombie Apocalypse Survivors.”

Registration is $20 before the race and $25 on race day. Those who register by Thursday, Oct. 15, are guaranteed a race T-shirt. Proceeds will be used to support physical therapy services for the community and research in that field.

Packet pickup and race day registration will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 31.
