Hunter Subaru Zombie Escape scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 3

It’s a foot race like no other: The Henderson County Chamber of Commerce and the Henderson County Soccer Association team up to present the Hunter Subaru Zombie Escape on Sunday, Nov. 3. The 2.4 mile trail run is held at Camp Ton-A-Wandah.

From a press release:

This event is not your average run. Runners will be given a flag belt with three health flags attached. As they run the course, zombie participants will have the goal of collecting runners’ health flags. In order to finish the race as a “survivor,” runners must cross the finish with at least one health flag remaining. There will be safe zones set up along the route where runners will have access to water without the threat of zombie attack. The event will wrap up at the gymnasium at Camp Ton-A-Wandah with the Apocalypse Party, where participants can celebrate their survival or new zombie transformation with food, beverages, and music.

Online registration for the Zombie Escape is now open with discounted prices through September 1. Runner/escapee registration is $40 which includes event participation, entry into the Apocalypse Party, finisher’s prize, and event shirt. Zombie registration is $25 and includes zombie transformation, entry into the Apocalypse Party, and event shirt. Individuals can also register to attend the Apocalypse Party for $15. Zombie Transformations begin at 11 a.m. the morning of Nov. 3. The run begins at 2 p.m. with the party immediately following and lasting until 5 p.m.
