Zombies! RUN!!

Prepare yourself for the future zombie apocalypse by participating in this year’s Zombie Run on Saturday, Oct .25.

Hosted by the Rural Health Research Institute and sponsored by Bulloch County Partnership for Health and the Georgia Southern University Wellness Program, this event is quickly becoming more and more popular with each coming year. It is guaranteed to be a great time for any non-decaying person who doesn’t eat brains or intestines for breakfast.

“We’re very excited to be hosting the run this year and are expecting a big turnout. With the 5K, the Fun Run and the costume contest being judged by Galactic Comics, it should be a great time,” Emily DeMeo, manager of the run, said.

Yes, she did in fact say “costume contest.” While dress-up is optional, why not relive your elementary school days by running in a princess dress, pirate hat or in some sweet zombie makeup to completely freak out the people running next to you? You may even score some prizes.

“Dressing up made this run so much more interesting and fun than other runs I’ve done. You get some good exercise as you meet new people and I mean, you get chased by zombies. It’s f****n’ awesome,” Don Breyne, sophomore multimedia film production major, said.

The Zombie Run begins at 10 a.m. in the front of the RAC, and is a one mile run that includes the zombie obstacles. Best of all, it’s completely free. (Four letters that are hard to come by these days, except during Homecoming week at the Rotunda). The only expense for this race is for all of you t-shirt lovers, the Fun Run t-shirts will be sold at the race for $7 each.

It’s going to be “survival of the fittest” when the Apocalypse comes around, so might as well get ahead of the game!
