Hundreds or runners, walkers and staggerers appeared Saturday morning, Sept. 28, for El Paso County’s “Be Prepared…Don’t be a Zombie” event held at Fox Run Regional Park.

This event was designed to showcase the need for all residents to develop their own family and workplace emergency preparedness plans.

The 5K run began at 10 a.m. with some runners dressed as Zombies. The 3K Zombie Run heats included Zombies trying to grab “life flags” from the runners, very similar to flag football.There were several specific “Zombie Zones” in the 3K races where Zombies tended to gather.
