El Paso County
The county wants you to be prepared for just about anything.
You have until Thursday to register for this Saturday's 3k run from the undead.
El Paso County's Be Prepared… Don’t Be A Zombie 2015 Zombie Run
will be hosted at Fox Run Regional Park. The first run starts at 10 a.m. Runners will be chased by zombie hordes who attempt to take their flags. In order to get a new flag, runners have to answer a question about emergency preparedness. The point, obviously, isn't to prepare the public for zombies, but to ready them for the very real disasters like fires and floods.
. The cost is $10-$30 per runner. Proceeds will go to support community emergency preparedness activities.
