Grab some friends. Find some fun costumes. And get ready for some scary fun.
GAITHERSBURG, MD - September 24, 2013 - The skies have a dark, ominous hue rolling in over the horizon. The autumn air is crisp and cool. A cold, foreboding breeze sends chills up your spine. Grab your running shoes, it's time to test your survival instincts and skills at Fleet Feet Sports, Gaithersburg's Annual Zombie Fun Run/Walk on Wednesday, October 30th at 6:30pm.
Each year Fleet Feet Sports hosts this Kentlands' fall-favorite, but this year surprising new twists and turns are sure to make it the best event yet, including the addition of some of Markoff's Haunted Forest's professional scaring crew! Wear your scariest Halloween costume for a chance to win incredible prizes courtesy of Markoff's Haunted Forest, but more importantly, grab a group of friends you are confident could survive the hardships and misery of a "Walking Dead" zombie apocalypse and join us - if you dare.
The run/walk will follow the Kentlands/Lakelands 5K course - expect a dark, scary course filled with the frights and sights of the apocalypse. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Although costumes are encouraged, we also suggest adding reflective apparel, headlamps, vests and flashlights to your ensembles!
As always, this event is free! So mark your calendars, and be prepared to be scared.
*Since this event takes place at night, please be sure to include reflectivity gear, head lamps and flashlights in your attire for the evening. Plus, rumor has it zombies are afraid of light! Children can attend, but MUST be accompanied throughout the entire run/walk by an adult.
