Cross country team plans 5K Zombie Run

MANISTIQUE – Calling all runners, walkers and, yes, zombies.

On Nov. 2 the Manistique cross country team will be holding a 5K Zombie Run – a fundraiser for the team.

The event will take place at Intake Park at 11 a.m.

Preregistration deadline is Oct. 30. The cost to be a “zombie” is $30. To participate as a “human”, the fee is $25.

Late registration after Oct. 30 will incur an additional $5 per category.

The 3.1 mile course is open to all runners and walkers in all age categories. Awards will be presented to the top three finishers in each age group. Groups will be split by 10- year increments.

The following format has been tentatively set:

• Humans will be racing against the clock and have three balloons attached to a belt.

•Zombies will be released at a predetermined time. Zombies will be competing for the most human “kills” (balloons popped) and the best dressed.

Modifications and/or clarifications will be announced prior to the run.

Registration forms can be picked up in the Manistique High School office.

A form is also available on page B4 of this week’s Pioneer Tribune.

Additional information is available by contacting Mary Lou Lund at 450-6146 or Laurie Lindstrom at 341-4300, ext 136.
