The running dead: Zombie run raises about $2,000

Zombie run Saturday raises about $2,000

Hunt participated in the event with her mother, daughter and a group of friends they met through various fitness activities in the area.

“It was close by and it supports Cass County,” the Logansport resident said. “I was all for it.”

Hunt and her friends have traveled to Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky and Wisconsin to run in obstacle course races. However, this was the first in which Hunt said they had the pleasure of being chased by zombies.

“It was so much fun not knowing what to expect around the corner,” she said.

Hunt added she likes obstacle course races because of the friendships they forge and the camaraderie they inspire as people help each other through the challenges.

“The goal is to get people off the couch, get them moving and across the finish line,” she said.

Hunt’s friend, Kasmira Thompson of Kokomo, praised the event as well.

“For a first-time event, it had a great turnout,” she said. “France Park is the perfect location for them to do it. We loved it.”

Aly Small and Aubrey Pullen participated as zombies in the race, their faces painted green and white with black cracks smeared throughout.

“I had a blast,” Small said. “It was fun. Everyone’s been talking about it, being the first year. It’s definitely worth doing again.”

Stotler and fellow Loganland Leadership Academy member Brya Danely said they hope to bring the event back in 2014 with some changes and improvements after this year’s inaugural run. The two spoke of holding the race during warmer weather so as to work in obstacle course staples like mud and water challenges and possibly even a “blood bath” obstacle to further align with the zombie theme.

Both said feedback is encouraged on the event’s Facebook page, titled “Cass County 5K Zombie Run.”
