If you'll be in SLC this weekend, there's a fundraising 5K over at This is the Place Heritage Park (2601 E. Sunnyside Ave.) on Saturday, Oct. 9th, at 2 p.m. All runners have to register as either an "infected" (a/k/a zombies) or a "survivor" ... and if you're a Survivor, you get a one minute head start on the Zombies. No physical contact or actual eating of brains is allowed. Costumes are allowed and, in fact, encouraged for the 1 mi. "Creep and Crawl." There will be a family party before the 5 K run, featuring music, makeup artists and prizes, and the Park itself is all decked out for Hallowe'en with haunted cemetaries, old buildings and "surprises."
The fundraising beneficiary is the Huntsman Cancer Center - a very worthwhile organization - so if you're in the mood to run for your lives (or tasty brains), shamble on over to the Night of the Running Dead.
