[10/27] Knight of the Living Dead Zombie 5K and Kids Run Run

Celebrate the Halloween season by running our 5K Zombie Run or our Kids Fun Run.  The 5k is run with a race flag belt.  There will be Zombies spread around the course that will try to steal your flags.  The fun run is ran on the track and kids will not wear a belt or be chased by Zombies.  (full details on Event Info tab).  The event raises money for the West Chester Food Cupboard, the Rustin High School Cross Country and Swim and Dive teams, in addition to local charities.

You will be issued a race belt with 3 flags. Try to avoid having our Zombies, who will be spread around the course, steal your flags. Racers who do not wish to be chased by Zombies can run beltless. One minute will be deducted from your finish time for each belt you have retained (adjusted time counts towards prizes, not PR bragging rights!) Finishers who have no flags left at the finish will still be eligible for prizes as long as they hand in their belt at the finish. 
Start the race with a 4th flag on your belt by bringing one or more bags of non perishable food or grocery store gift card in the amount of $10 or more to packet pick up.  Food and grocery cards dropped at packet pick up will be donated to the West Chester Food Cupboard.
Top 3 men/women and age group awards for: 0-10, 11-14, 15-19, 20- 29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-up
