RUN WITH THE ZOMBIES

Zombies are set to invade Henderson Oct. 25 at Equestrian Park South, 1200 Equestrian Drive.

The city of Henderson plans its inaugural Zombie Run 5K & Family Fun Walk from 3:30 to 8:30 p.m, according to city spokeswoman Nicole Johnson.

“The city has had a Halloween run for some time now. Last year it was ghosts and goblins,” Johnson said. “But the zombie following is very popular with kids and adults, so we wanted something that would expand across all generations.”

The 5K is set to feature zombie actors hiding along the trail, but they will not chase or have contact with runners. The family walk is set to be zombie-free.

“We also hope to have all participants dress up, whether it’s as a zombie or a princess,” Johnson said. “We’re just encouraging everyone to get in the spirit of Halloween.”

Halloween-themed games and entertainment are planned at the park after the run. Tickets starts at $12 for the 5K and $6 for the fun walk. Registration is required.
