Whether they are slow or fast, if zombies chase you, you have to speed up! Some will walk and many will run but we won’t know for sure until race day, Saturday, October 24th. It’s up to you to survive the zombie epidemic coming to downtown Lewisburg, WV with Run United Way’s annual Half Marathon and Zombie 5k: Run of the Living Dead.
Everyone is invited to sign up for this event. The run starts at 9:00am at 105 Church Street (beside New River Community College) and registration is from 7:30-8:30am.
