Kaskaskia College To Hold Zombie Run On September 26

Kaskaskia College will host a 5K Zombie Run on Saturday, September 26 with all proceeds benefiting the KC Nursing Education Center.

The event is part of the Family Reunion and Open House festivities held at the KC Main Campus. All 5K run participants will wear flag-football belts and try to keep their flags until the end of the race. Groups of “zombies” will try to take your flags along the course.

Runners who complete the 5k with at least one (1) of their life flags will be declared a survivor. All survivors are then entered into a drawing for prizes! Want to be a zombie?? There will also be a prize for the zombie that captures the most flags!

Course conditions will vary and include grass, concrete, asphalt and of course, the undead trying to get your flags.

Pre-register entry fees are $25.00 and includes free t-shirt. Walk up registration will be $30.00. ½ mile obstacle fun run for children is free with paid adult registration. A special prize will be given to the zombie with the most flags.

For those participants who aren’t into running or may want to bring children along, we will also have a ½ mile obstacle fun run for the kids.

Any participants who want to guarantee they make it through without becoming infected and into the prize drawing may purchase a zombie vaccine for $5.00!
