Run from zombies or be one in Wesley Chapel Oct. 11

WESLEY CHAPEL — Run from zombies in a 5K race at 10 a.m. Oct. 11 at Wesley Chapel High School, 30651 Wells Road.

Each runner will wear a belt with three flags on it, which zombies will try to take. Make it to the finish line with at least one flag still stuck to your belt, and you're a survivor. Run without flags and the zombies won't bother you. If you'd prefer to dress as a zombie, join "the Horde" of zombies instead. Zombies who are part of the Horde won't chase runners but will help create a zombie-filled environment.

The cost is $25 to run and $20 to be part of the Horde. Proceeds benefit the Wesley Chapel High School band. Packet pick-up starts at 8:30 a.m. the day of the race. To register, visit online. For information, call (813) 843-9783 or email
