Look out for the zombies

Cass County 5K Zombie Run rescheduled for Oct. 26.

Just like the walking dead, the zombie run is coming back.

Members of the most recent graduating class of the Loganland Leadership Academy have rescheduled the 5K run with zombie-themed obstacles for Oct. 26. The course has been moved to the trails at France Park.

The run originally had been planned for midsummer at Huston Park. However, work on scenic facilities at Huston made France Park a more feasible location, according to Brya Danely, one of the run’s organizers.

“We’re able to do more obstacles at France Park,” added Danely.

Danely was tight-lipped about what the obstacles were, but did say they’d include several muddy climbing hills, a tire obstacle, some crawling, and a segment that she called a “bloodbath.”

When runners slide down the opposite side of one of the climbing hills, “it’s going to be full of — it’s just going to look like blood,” Danely said. “They’re going to have it all over them.”

What the “blood” will actually be is still to be determined, she said, but it may include red gelatin.

Organizers are also weighing the challenge of barbed wire in a crawling obstacle with concerns over participants’ safety.

“That’s still a maybe because we don’t want anybody cutting themselves,” Danely said.

The run is slated to start at 10 a.m. Oct. 26, with registration and check-in starting at 8 a.m. Make-up for anyone participating as zombies will start at the same time as registration.

Danely advised that participants should be at least 16 years old because of the nature of the obstacles.

Advance registration for runners is $25, $20 for zombies. Registration the day of for both zombies and runners will be $30.

Proceeds will be headed toward establishing a scholarship fund for high school seniors in any of the four county schools — Logansport, Lewis Cass, Pioneer and Caston.
