The East Tennessee State University Department of Physical Therapy within the College of Clinical and Rehabilitative Health Sciences will host a 3K Zombie Run on Saturday, Oct. 28, at 9 a.m.
Each runner will be given two flags to wear during the race. Zombies will be hidden throughout the course and will try to steal the flags. Runners making it to the finish line with one or both flags are considered survivors.
Registration for runners is $25. Those wishing to pose as zombies for the event can do so for $20. Spots are limited for the number of zombies.
The race will begin and end at Tri-Hall Field behind Centennial and Governors halls and in front of Davis Hall. Approximately half of the course is located on the trail in the ETSU woods.
In addition to prizes for the top three finishers in the race, a prize will be awarded for the best zombie costume.
All proceeds go to the non-profit Pittsburgh-Marquette Challenge, a fundraising competition among physical therapy students across the nation to support the Foundation for Physical Therapy, which supports physical therapy research and physical therapist student education.
