Buckeye Woods Park will be taken over by zombies starting at 11 a.m. Sunday for a different kind of 5K run.
Runners and walkers will traverse a 5K course through the park, 6335 Wedgewood Road in Lafayette Township, but will have to watch out for the zombies who might capture one of their three flags and infect the runner.
The winners will be the first to cross the finish line with at least one flag, or life, still intact. Medals will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers.
Registration is $20 for runners — $25 on the day of the race — and $10 for zombies. All proceeds will benefit the nonprofit Project: LEARN’s adult and family literacy and tutoring programs in Medina County. Runners and zombies can register at any Project: LEARN site — 105 W. Liberty St., Medina; 103 Main St., Wadsworth; or 831 Pearl Road, Brunswick. Registration on the day of the race starts at 9:30 a.m.
Entry forms can be downloaded at www.projectlearnmedina.org, and forms also are available at Second Sole, 122 Public Square, Medina.
For more information, call (330) 723-1314.
