Guides needed for Zombie Run this Saturday

Zombie Run is this Saturday and we need help! Due to the government shutdown, our National Guard volunteers are unable to help us during the event as their role as “guides”. Zombie Run requires guides to show the “uninfected” through the course, and we haven’t gotten enough volunteers to help with this critical role.

The course is about 2 miles and the terrain is like a mild trail run. Guides will run the course up to 3-4 times (6-8 miles total) from 2-6 pm this Saturday, October 19, with some breaks in between laps. The more guides we get, the fewer laps they need to do.

If you can volunteer to be a guide, you will have not only our undying gratitude, but also a free race shirt! If you or anyone you know can help, please contact Megan Kuhlenschmidt ( by this Wednesday evening (October 16).
