If you think you have what it takes to survive, register today for the Second Annual Zombie 5K Run hosted by the Voorhees High School Education Foundation. “In the spirit of Halloween, the Zombie 5K Run is an opportunity to prove what you’re made of while having fun and supporting our students and our community”, said Foundation President Chris Sickels. “Last year’s inaugural race brought out 250 participants. We’re hoping to double that this year.”
As runners make their way through the lush grounds of Spruce Run Recreation Area, Zombies will be lurking nearby. The course is a scenic 5K mostly flat course that both runners and walkers will enjoy.
The race is on Sunday, September 28th, at Spruce Run. The cost is $20 for pre-registration and $25 on the day of the race (student registration is always $20). The event starts at 12:00 noon; race begins at 2pm. Pre-registration is now open and a free T-shirt is guaranteed to the first 300 registrants. Post-run prizes, refreshments and music will be available. Refreshments will also be available for sale. To register early, visithttps://runsignup.com/Race/NJ/Clinton/VHSEF5K.
