Kayhi’s track and field team will be hosting their 8th annual zombie run on Wednesday at Ward Lake. The zombie run is a 5k race that is ran with a belt of flags. The goal of the race is to finish with as many flags as possible while avoiding the zombies hidden on the trail and collecting replacement flags as you run.
“It’s something fun that we do each year. It started when we needed to raise some money for our first Washington trip,” said track head coach Alex Pennino.
“A video of a zombie run from down south was shown to me, and ever since then it has become an annual fundraiser for us,” said Pennino.
There will be a fire, snacks, and refreshments after the race.
Registration for the race will open at 5 p.m.
The kids 1 mile race will start at 6 p.m. while the adults 5k will start at 6:30 p.m.
